Explode Into Colors Voted the Deli Portland's Best Emerging Band of 2009: Part Deux!!

 

As evidenced by the composite points chart blogged just below this post, the voters of Portland have spoken, Facebooked, MySpaced, Tweeted, cold-called and badgered the general populace to come right and announce that, yes, Explode Into Colors was Portland's Best Emerging Band of 2009! Major huge congratulations go out to the all-girl, lo-fi, found-sound dance trio for their trailblazing 2009, and for making our ears tilt just a little more than usual this year.

Thanks, again, to everyone who voted on the Readers Poll, the Open Poll, and also to our amazing list of Jurors. The Deli Portland's stellar list of Jurors consisted of some amazing local bloggers, writers, and music people, and we couldn't have come to such a wide cross-section of bands without their valid input. Here they are, in no particular order:

DJ Gustav: DJ for 94.7 FM Alternative Portland;

Nick Mattos: Celebrated queer columnist, and arts writer for Portland's Just Out newspaper;

Chris Young: Contributor to the Deli Portland, Associate Editor and DJ/Electro Editor of Oregon Music News;

Michael Miller: Contributor to the Deli Portland;

Katrina Nattress: Assistant Editor for the Deli Portland, Music Editor of Button Magazine, and contributor to Willamette Week newspaper;

Ryan J. Prado: Associate Editor of the Deli Portland, staff writer for Just Out newspaper, contributor for Synthesis, Wonka Vision, and Alternative Press;

Mark Lore: Editor/founder of The Days of Lore music blog, contributor to Spin.com, Chico News and Review, and The Portland Mercury;

Joel Sommer: Contributor to the Deli Portland

 

And let's not forget the runners-up in the Best Emerging Band of 2009 poll: Nurses, and Deli Portland Readers Poll winner Bodhi! We can't say enough great things about these bands, but we'll try as soon as we catch our breath.

 

Stick around for our regular monthly Band of the Month polls, beginning February 1st. And keep reading The Deli Portland!

Portugal. The Man: A New Tour, A New Release, A New Video

The ever-rising Portugal. The Man has recently announced a new headlining tour with popular supporting acts Port O’Brien and The Dig.

While out to promote their newest release The Satanic Satanist, the band will also be playing songs from their upcoming album, American Ghetto, which according to Portugal will be for the fans.

"We are not sending it to press and we are not sending it to radio. When all the finishing touches are complete we will make it available to everyone on the same day."

The band is also offering a tour sampler that you can check out here, along with a full list of tour dates and accompaniments. In the meantime, check out the latest video from the Wasilla, AK cum Portland, OR delinquents below:

Bladen County Records Presents a Night of Musical Fortune You Can and Should Take a Chance On

 

 

Bladen County Records is putting on the Spin the Wheel Showcase @ Holocene this Thursday the 21st! What does that mean? We're glad you asked...

Here's how it works: A member of the audience gets to come and and spin a fun and giant "Wheel of Fortune" to determine which one of the local and talented bands is to come up and play one song. The process then repeats itself, and keeps on rolling. The format lends itself toward laughing and libations - things are bound to get a little silly.

The various possibilities for performance are endless! Why not start by buying a vowel? Give me an O! You can bask in the melodically indulgent, vintage indie rock of Oh, Captain, My Captain.

Give me an H! Perhaps you then leisurely take a stroll through the weird, though beautiful and transfixing compositions of Hosannas (formerly Church).

Give me a T! Here comes a delightful ditty from indie-folk songsmiths, Typhoon.

Give me an M! Hither comes a '50s rock 'n' roll/pop classic from Oh, Captain, My Captain spin off, Monarques.

Give me a P! A well-crafted garage-pop jam with addicting organ lines just may blossom through live cultivation from Patterns. The wheel will decide!

The boisterous carnival of music kicks of at 9:00 p.m. for $5.
