Have a Prom Redo with the High School Records Prom (and After Prom)

Modern Portland adults likely didn't have the best prom experience in school. Not because everyone definitavely has a shitty time, but because back in our day those that excelled in high school tended to be the jocks, Associated Student Body ruling or prep types that found those types of events the literal social events of the year. Us musically endowed types have a second chance at making prom an actually enjoyable experience thanks to High School Records and their first annual prom they're hosting tonight.

Come donned in your finest of pieces to twerk, cha cha and slow dance with everyone during performances from Hollow Sidewalks, Sweeping Exits, Volturz and You Said Strange. DJ Joseph Hopper will be spinning in between sets, and all money collected at the door is going directly to Outside In.

If a Saturday night prom sesh isn't in your cards, consider heading to the High School Records After Prom, which takes place tomorrow. Devy Metal, Helens, The American Weather and Small Field will be playing the Liquor Store for free in efforts to close out High School Records' first foray into social engagements. 

Tickets for tonight's prom are still for sale, running on an suggested donation of about $10. 





The Spiral Electric Releases New Album + Plays Elbo Room - 1/19

The San Francisco based neo psych band, The Spiral Electric has released their new album entitled, Ask the Sky this month. Make sure you take a listen and find yourself taking a trip down Ask the Sky's psychedelic sonic rabbit hole.

You can catch The Spiral Electric live at The Elbo Room on January 19th with Hollow Sidewalks and New SUN Company!





PREMIERE: The Late Great - "Shape of the Sea"

Expressing snarky banter and melancholy through fitting songwriting and equally expressive guitar work, The Late Great convey both innocence and feminist tones with their dark pop execution, as seen on their debut album Easy

The sincerity of the lyrics from "Shape of the Sea" are a good example of this, where songwriter and The Late Great leader Sarah Lane imparts strength and power by saying "I'll take on the shape of the sea/Lord go on & lay it down on me/I am your pride, I'm your enemy/So go on and take what you want from me." Women do take on a lot in the world and Lane welcomes that weight without fear - a message that's both relatable and empowering. 

Easy will be digitally released on August 17, with a release show happening on August 20 at the Turn! Turn! Turn! with Mike Coykendall and Hollow Sidewalks. Dive into the "Shape of the Sea" below.





Portland Psych Fest is back and begins tomorrow!

Back for its second year, the Portland Psych Fest has made good with presenting what's finest in the psych realm along the West Coast. This is exactly what we can expect from this weekened's happenings as well.

Starting tomorrow night and running all day Saturday, Portland Psych Fest features 17 artists and 3 DJs from here all the way down to Mexico, with a couple hailing from Idaho and Chicago. Four artists are slated to represent good ol' PDX, with two performing each night of the fest.

The much adored Jacksoon Boone will be taking the stage Friday along with Zozma, whose witchy psych includes trippy elements pulled from Middle Eastern pop.

Hawkeye's lo-fi indie britpop will surely delight fans of Spiritualized, as their influence can be heard throughout Hawkeye's songs. For a band made up of members of Souvenir Driver and Hollow Sidewalks, the influence makes sense and has only been perfected by the members' all around mastery. 

Portland psych can't really be discussed without mentioning Cambrian Explosion, who even for being in the scene three years have already solidified their place in it. Internal changes within the band haven't hindered them in any sense musically. They'll be on a few slots before headliners Spindrift and will be helping properly close out an intense weekend.

To view the few lineup and purchase tickets, visit the Portland Psych Fest website. Howler opens up the fest at 7:30pm tomorrow, so make sure you come out early.





Calisse, Hollow Sidewalks and Night Beats tonight at Dante's

It's one of the first truly beautiful days of the season, so tonight is guaranteed to be optimal in weather and in fun times. Dante's will be hosting Seattle's Night Beats, Hollow Sidewalks and Câlisse in what is sure to be a lively set of performances. The Night Beats have gone through the usual trials and tribulations you see in most bands - disagreements, breakups, makeups, but tonight they'll be sharing the stage with a pair of incredibly talented Portland acts. Deli favorites Hollow Sidewalks have previously been featured in perfectly "fitting the bill" as an opener for Ringo Deathstarr, and the same can be said for their inclusion in the show tonight. Nora Muphy Hughes' comforting croon is but one of the appealing draws to Hollow Sidewalks; their increibly relatable songs and perfected instrumentation being some of the others.

Câlisse is set to begin the night with their classic call to garagey pop rock. They just released a new video for their single "Stay" last month, coming off their upcoming album Farewell, Blacksheep, due out on the 15th. A song of longing, "Stay" calls to anyone who has ever desired deep connection with another.

Tickets for tonight's show are $10, with music beginning at 9pm.
