Friday, September 22 Howard Ivans & Mbrascatu at Fremont Theater
“Who is Howard Ivans? A stylized frequency? A flutter of heartbeats? An outline of emotion? Another gambler waiting for that strike of lightning playing the zero-sum game of love? Or is he the blurry figure at the edge of frame? “Someone that likes being in the dark room and dark stages, where the sound is brighter than the face.” A man away from himself. Keep breaking it down boy. On a path to obsession, his head full of fury and dreams, Howard Ivans is high-stepping through the rolling sea of time.”
Who is Mbrascatu? “A musical product of the creative melting pot of Portland, Mbrascatu is an indie rock band that draws from diverse European and American roots to create a unique signature sound.” They are a close-knit group with an infectious energy and songs sung in Italian with catchy choruses that get the audience dancing and singing along all night long.
Friday, September 22 Anna Tivel, Taylor Kingman at Alberta Street Pub
Anna Tivel is celebrating her 9/29 album release, “Small Believer,” a week early. Anna has a quiet, unassuming way about her yet her lyrics speak volumes as they weave stories about household items, life on the road, or survivors of abuse. Even in the sometimes dark, melancholy messages, there is the glimmer of hope, an essence of beauty that she tries to convey to her audience. She draws you in, as if casting a spell and you are the rapt admirer, if only for a little while. Taylor Kingman from The Hilldogs will open.
“‘STACKSTOCK’ Presented by Public Coast Brewing Company, this is the first music festival to bring some of the region’s best established and emerging rock and pop bands to the Oregon coast.
Colin Meloy of the Decemberists headlines the festival line-up that includes everything from the dreamy pop sounds of bands like Pure Bathing Culture and Cardioid to the “raw choral pop” sounds of Portland’s Ages and Ages, the latin-influenced Edna Vazquez Acoustic Trio, and the woodsy harmonies of Wonderly. A special treat – Portland’s OK Chorale PDX will be on hand to turn the entire festival audience into a one-night-only pop band.
Local beers will be on tap, plus tasty eats from the Wayfarer Restaurant’s Chef Josh Archibald and his mobile smokehouse. Desserts will served by the Ruby Jewel Ice Cream cart.”
