Sama Dams Play Backspace 3.1

Sama Dams Play Backspace 3.1

If you are lucky enough to be at Backspace on March 1st, do yourself a favor: Show up early, grab a beer and get a spot at the front of the crowd because you are going to want to absorb this show in its entirety. Portland natives, Sama Dams, are simply electric on stage. Their avant-rock sound is deeply textured with digital goodness that is rivaled by front man, Sam Adams, haunting and controlled melodies. If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing them live this is going to be a good night for you. Sama Dams will be sharing the stage with the upbeat and irreverent Walter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra, the pop-tackular hard rocking Tiananmen Bear, and the enchanting Amenta Abioto who weaves African folk music and loops so harmoniously she will get your ears high. Backspace will be alive with some of the best sounds Portland has to offer and all for a $5 cover at the door. - Joy Pearson

Sama Dams have recently launched a kickstarter campaign in order to fund their upcoming full length album. Click here to learn how you can help.
