Stephen Kellogg @ Eddie’s Attic
Although his music has been described as Americana, Country-Rock, Folk, Singer/Songwriter, and, somehow, pop, Stephen Kellogg has always thought of it as American-rock n’ roll. It’s a product of his father’s record collection, from Jim Croce and Cat Stevens to Eagles and The Band. Somewhere along the way, he fell in love with showmanship and acts that put on great concerts. In November of 2012, Stephen Kellogg and his band of the last ten years decided to take a hiatus. 2012 was a year of change if nothing else. The musical result of this tumultuous period is Blunderstone Rookery, set to release later this month.
Pharmakon @ 529
Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. She has been making power electronics/ death industrial music under the name Pharmakon for five years. She describes her drive to make noise music as something akin to an exorcism where she is able to express, her “deep-seated need/drive/urge/possession to reach other people and make them FEEL something [specifically] in uncomfortable/ confrontational ways.”
Radiation City @ The EARL
Portland’s Radiation City released their second full-length album Animals In The Median, May 21, 2013 via Tender Loving Empire. From their use of modern electronic sounds and the restraint of classic bossa records, to the urgency and harmony of northern soul, the band has codified seemingly disparate ideas into a sound and ethos that is at once refreshing and classic.
The Slide Brothers @ Vinyl
The Slide Brothers are Calvin Cooke, Chuck Campbell, Darick Campbell and Aubrey Ghent–the greatest living musicians who embody the Sacred Steel tradition. The joyous music these legendary artists create extends far beyond scared steel to encompass blues, rock and soul all celebrated with a sound that is uniquely their own. The Slide Brothers were recently featured as part of the Experience Hendrix Tour, thrilling sold out audiences across the US and Canada with their interpretations of such Hendrix signature songs as “Purple Haze” and “Foxey Lady”. Their acclaimed performances have won fans who had never witnessed the infectious appeal of the sacred steel.
