Summer Soundtrack + Kill the Concept + Skeleton Boy

9:30 || $3
Yes, you read that correctly. Summer Soundtrack is back from their years-long hiatus to rock the underwear off you with your pants still on. Because you wear your underwear outside your pants to a Summer Soundtrack show. That’s just the way it goes.
Kill the Concept are a brand-spanking-new local rock band. So be sure to show up and give them a nice spanking for their zeroeth birthday. We don’t know what to expect. Naturally we’re terrified.
Skeleton Boy are a new band from Albany, OR. Come listen to them before it was cool to listen to them!

Hello Dollface

9:30 || $5
Hello, Dollface. a multi-dimensional, cosmic soul collective flirting with a kaleidoscope of color and sound in a collision of space & time. Ethereal, electro-sensual, sophisticated, raw, and intentional, the band paints the spirit world in Dali soundscapes layered in through-composed forms, rainbow rhodes, varied meters, jazz sensibility, and a siren’s call in a shifting paradigm. Soul poetry in motion 2017 A.D.
“Blend the harmonic sense of Innervisions-era Stevie Wonder with the skeletal downtempo beats of Portishead, and top it up with a scorching soul singer… that’s the magic recipe for Hello, Dollface.” – The Big Takeover, Brooklyn, NY.

Beers With Queers

9:00 || Free
Proud to bring you another installment of the Beers with Queers social hour(s). Last one featured a dance party from 11:30-12:30 which can only be explained as some sort of unplanned flash-mob, and an “angry face” react on Facebook from some fanatic who apparently hates beers. Fortunately, the gods saw fit to smite said fanatic with a boring night life and blessed our revelry with oodles of fun. Who knows what glorious surprises await? Come hang out with your favorite LGBT+ friends!

Brad Parsons + Lost Ox

9:30 || $5
Once people get the chance to see Brad Parsons Band , it’s an experience they don’t easily forget. The Portland-based singer-songwriter has been enrapturing audiences across the country with his almost-unreal powerhouse of a voice and his genre-bending blend of psychedelic rock and Americana. His songs and style aim to hit you right in your chest and his big voice goes for your gut. He begs you to sing, shout, dance, laugh and cry with him with songs that sound like standards but are wholly unique to his own style.
It’s not just his steadily growing fan base that knows that he’s got something special going on. The former member of Horse Feathers gets a lot of love from other musicians, including being tapped as a special guest for Fruition on Jam Cruise, and artist at large for Winter Wonder Grass Tahoe and Northwest String Summit.
Lost Ox is part rapidfire rambling lyrics, part whiskey blues soul grass, two parts neo-funk groove; all with an extra helping of electro-psychedelic heat. The Portland-based prog-blues-folk quartet bring their own brand of inventive playfulness to performances; weaving dark, murderous yarns in the same stride as delightfully groovy jive numbers, saturated richly with improvisation and interplay.
