Blind Pandas - June 6 + 7 @ 8pm
Musicians Adam Pitt of Madison, WI and Karlie Paige of Cincinnati, OH met in the most random small town of Long Beach, WA. After knowing each other a few weeks, they sat down on Christmas and decided to play some songs. It wasn't long after that Blind Pandas was formed. A combination of acoustic folk and blues, they combine truthful, heartbreaking lyrics with the prettiest chord progressions they can come up with, as well as finding ways to revamp their favorite covers.
Jeremy Wilson - June 8 + 9 @ 8pm
"The acoustic-driven album finds him stretching into the Americana twang and slapback vocals of "Mary" and the rush of horns that drives "Let a Poor Man Beg," though songs such as "Rushing Out" and "The Whisper" settle into a comfortable exploration of the '90s rock era's softer side. It even features a sort of Dharma Bums reunion, with the original quartet all playing on the heavy "I Can't Bury You." - David Greenwald, Oregonlive
Malachi Graham & Jamie Stillway - June 10-12 @ 9pm
Malachi Graham presents punchy female-fronted alt-Americana. Malachi's forceful, nuanced electric guitar and unaffected voice is backed by Jamie Stillway on bass. On her debut EP Selfish (2015), Malachi channels female voices that are intoxicating, self-sabotaging, mesmerizing, and not preoccupied with being liked.
The Desert Kind - June 13 + 14 @ 8pm
The Desert Kind is the brainchild of Portland-based songwriter Chris Bigley. Beginning as a mostly unplugged Americana outfit, Bigley shifted gears in 2015, stripping the live presentation to a duo--himself and bassist J Elwood Johncox, and emboldening their material with pulsing kick drums and crackling electric guitars. Anchored by Bigley’s writing, the band marches onward, creating a rollicking, poetry-fueled roots-minimalism ala Shovels and Rope, Possessed by Paul James and Shakey Graves.
Those Willows - June 15 + 16 @ 9pm
“Get to know the beautiful & endearing styles of Those Willows who stitch a sound that sweeps you off your feet with an honest & human approach that makes you smile & skip-stroll through your day.” – Impose Magazine
Jonah - June 17 @ 9pm
After nearly ten years, Portland band Jonah is reuniting for a special show. Jonah originally formed in Bend, OR, and eventually landed in the City of Roses. They hit their stride in Portland, winning over fans and critics alike with their adherence to the majestic side of what pop music could be and experiencing all the ebbs and flows of the burgeoning Northwest music scene along the way: Releasing four records, touring nationally, landing songs in films and television, sharing the stage with heavy-hitters like Silversun Pickups and Youth Group and playing sold out shows at many prestigious west coast venues, like The Crystal Ballroom, The Doug Fir Lounge, and The Echo in L.
Lewi Longmire - June 18 - 20 @ 8pm
Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own original compositions - Lewi Longmire & the Left Coast Roasters.
Rain City Ramblers - June 21 - 23 @ 8pm
Hailing from Seattle, Washington, the Rain City Ramblers are an exciting acoustic trio that draws upon the deep well of American roots music to practice their own original songwriting and arrangement. Featuring Forrest Marowitz (upright bass), Daniel Ullom (mandolin) and Jim Horbett (guitar), they can rip fiddle tunes, set down a groovy two-step, and render haunting versions of folk ballads. Their minimalistic line-up and tight vocal arrangements has captivated folks in festivals and clubs across the country. Their first full length album, Hateful Ways, was released in January 2017.
Pete Krebs - June 24 - 26 @ 9pm
Pete Krebs is an independent musician from Portland, Oregon, best known as a member of the punk-pop band Hazel and a [pickled fish] regular with band, the Earnest Lovers. Having already served successful tours in the Northwest punk bands Thrillhammer, Hazel (two albums on Sub Pop records) and the rambunctious bluegrass band Golden Delicious, Pete Krebs has emerged as one of the most consistently engaging contemporary singer-songwriters. Much like his friend and collaborator Elliott Smith, Krebs uses his more rock-oriented roots to drive his intensely introspective songs. Both Krebs and Smith have passed through early periods of extremely stripped down solo recordings to tackling grander ambitions with more sonically dense collaborative works.
John Miller - June 27 @ 8pm
John Miller is an emerging Portland Gloom/Folk Singer/Songwriter. His latest record Beneath The Willow explores the mysterious and often times bewildering complexities of human emotion. Highly regarded as a must-see performer John Miller has attracted crowds of all age groups from Seattle, Washington to Los Angeles, California.
Pretty Gritty - June 28 - 30 @ 8pm
Pretty Gritty is the serendipitous joining of the talents of Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Wolff, both born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. Although they originate from different rock bands, fate brought them together at local “open-mic” nights, where it became evident that they shared an interest in writing and performing songs that mix country, rock, blues, and soul. It’s said that she brings the “pretty” while he brings the “gritty”, combining for an engaging alt-country duo with seducing harmonies and addicting acoustics.
