Alameda at Holocene 6.2

Alameda at Holocene 6.2

Alameda, the Portland-based five piece band with sophisticated instrumentation and smooth harmonious vocals has found a sound that is settled and sure. The tracks on Procession, the album released in 2012, contain a range of emotions and stories that grab you instantly. “Swollen Light,” the guitar driven heartbreaker, swells to a head and shows you exactly why this band is doing so well. Strings and clarinet keep things classy without getting bogged down in traditional frameworks. Their experimentation has payed off. This summer the band will be touring and surely met with open arms by current and new fans alike. Kicking off a summer of touring can't start at a better place than Holocene, and this Sunday they will do just that with the amazingly talented Mice Parade. Mice Parade has proven versatility and a relentless energy that takes advantage of an amazing percussion section and pop laced melodies with ease and lightheartedness. The combination of these bands is going to make for one heck of a night this Sunday, June 2nd.  Doors open at 7 and tickets are $10 online or at the door. - Joy Pearson
