These are bands that we think should be more popular than they are based on their well-refined sounds and all-around great music! These are not necessarily underground or unheard of bands, they are just under appreciated in our opinions.
This Portland-based band is signed to Polyvinyl records. Although they only have one album out, they have already found their own unique sound and put on a great live show.
Dry River Yacht Club is holding a vinyl release party for their new album El Tigre this Friday, April 4th at the Hayden Flour Mill . Today, they announced that the Flaming Lips have joined the lineup. We are a little suspicious considering the Flaming Lips have been going crazy with April Fool's jokes this year, but it seems to be legitimate :) Either way it will be super fun and it is only $12 pre-sale or $15 at the door. As always, come support your local bands!!! ...C
Whether you are a band or a music lover, bandsintown.com is an extremely useful resource. When you log in through your Facebook, it immediately starts tracking the bands and artists that you like on Facebook and tells you when they're coming to your area. The other really cool thing about Bandsintown is that you can look up what is happening in your area by date. I use this all the time. For example, if I am going to be in Phoenix for a weekend, I will look up what bands are playing while I'm there. You can use Bandsintown online or through the App, which is super easy to use. If you are an artist, you should most definitely be posting your upcoming shows on the website. Anyone can post an event and, just like everything else on the site, it is super easy to do! ...C
On Monday night we saw Best Coast open up for the Pixies and they were amazing, of course! This week, I decided to go with the song The Only Place because it really makes me want to be on a beach somewhere in California...C
