Show Hoppin’ Shenanigans 9/30
Last night started off pretty early, 7:30ish with some post-band practice beers at Ninkasi and the jam-rock stylings of Blue Lotus. Though, not specifically my cup of tea, these guys have a pretty tight sound, and provided an appropriate soundtrack to the crowded patio a the brew-pub/tasting room.
Finishing our pints of Believer (tasty!) and I art-walked my way toward downtown, stopping for a game at Blair Alley Vintage Arcade and a last visit with Mo Bowen at The Voyeur Art Gallery (sadface) before arriving at Black Forest in time to catch the latter half of Dead Horizon’s (Roseburg) set. These guys bring the hardcore (they claim “mediumcore”) heavy, brutal, and mustached. Good stuff.
Then I dipped in at The Oakstreet Speakeasy and caught a few minutes of 4Trees down home, roots-that-show hip hop.
At this point I stumbled through a maze of Dubstep Djs (sorry, somehow no pictures, I got distracted by jello shots) and wound up at Luckey’s hypnotized by the jam-funk-hop-blues fusion that is Jamalia.
Feeling a Los Banderos burrito and sleep calling my name, I resolved myself to one last beer/band at Black Forest. My ears are still ringing from the brutal breakdowns of Cold Blood Ceremony.
All in all, a good fuckin’ night. Until next time (when I rant and rave about tonight’s Melt Banana show @ WoW Hall) I bid you adieu.
