Lori Goldston > Circuit des Yeux

24 January 2018, Mississippi Studios, Portland, OR Lori Goldston:This girl was like the Thurston Moore of the cello. Or maybe even Glenn Branca. Not so much in the avant-garde aspect as the master-of-their-gift, but either way you might expect to see Lori part of a Thurston collaboration. The set was seamless as if it was...

02 August 2017, Mississippi Studios, Portland, OR [NO TICKET STUB] If I remember correctly, my wife sent me a text message around 10:30 AM that this free show was going down.

Kingdom of Not > Reptaliens > Foxygen

24 May 2017, Wonder Ballroom, Portland, OR [NO TICKET STUB] Kingdom of Not was one of the most fun shows I've ever seen.
