Can you believe we’re almost halfway through October already? Celebrate being that much closer to a new year with one of these shows tonight:
Shook Twins w/ Peyton Parket at Eddie’s Attic
Born and raised in Sandpoint Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman and Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins’ sound are a wide range of instrumentation, including banjo, guitar, electric and upright bass, mandolin, electric guitar, electronic drums, face drum (beatbox), glockenspiel, ukulele, banjo drumming and their signature golden EGG. Beautiful twin harmonies, layered upon acoustic and electric instrumentation coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of percussive and ambient vocal loops, and Katelyn’s repurposed telephone microphone, set their sound apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove and soul.
The Icarus Account w/ Chase Coy, I the Victor and The Roadside at Vinyl
Ty and Trey of The Icarus Account are living their dream as professional musicians writing songs that strike an emotional chord with their listeners. In roughly six years as The Icarus Account, they’ve learned a lot about writing and performing, but ultimately the goal has never changed. “We try to write songs that are honest and relatable,” Trey shares. “One of the most beautiful things about writing songs is that it proves how connected all of us really are.”
Tickets cost $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Doors open at 7pm.
