Three Shows Worth Your Time

Alicia and I are heading to Chicago on Thursday, and although we are looking forward to the trip, we will be bummed to miss 3 great shows taking place this weekend.

Tomorrow, Eternal Otter Records' own Johnny Fountain will be opening for This Way at the Empire Dine & Dance. He will be performing solo and will probably pull out some unexpected tunes.

On Friday, head over to SPACE for Tryst Haunt II- sure to be one of the best psychedelic experiences of the summer. Cursillistas will be releasing a limited edition vinyl version of their debut LP (their leader Matt is the force behind l'animaux tryst- who has been chronicling our local music scene on 7" vinyl singles for a few years now). Cursillistas will also be joined by Ian Paige's White Light- one of Tower of Song's first performers. Our friends from the Pine Haven Collective will be constructing their legendary "Shack" inside SPACE, so you can properly chillout and tune in.

You might as well just bring a sleeping bag and pitch tent in the Shack, because there is another great show at SPACE the following night. Bird in the Rafters will be releasing their debut record, Jet Lag, from peapod recordings. They will be joined by Winterpill and local favorites Seymour and Computer at Sea (who just took home an award for Best Electronic Act from the Portland Phoenix's Best Music Poll).
