Tonight at Towne Lounge, Local Cut welcomes to the stage three damn fine experimentalists for the whopping tenth edition of Portland Lounge Series. If you're new to this, PLS is where one of us Local Cut writers does a series of on-stage interviews of local music folks and then they play us a set. It's usually a pretty good time, if occasionally embarrassing and often half-slurred by the end.
This is Jesse Johnson of Evolutionary Jass Band fame playing with beats, ambiance and improvised trumpet. Grand stuff: a favorite new local project.
Tony York building and breaking hip-hop beats. Possibly some MCing involved.
This is the dude that runs Sonic Lozenge
, the wee (but not in spirit!) label that put out Gulls' fantastic debut Eats and Opus
. He does a mean noise remix of War of the Worlds
. Come find out for yourself what means.
Towne Lounge. 9:30 pm. 21+. FREE.
