Stereovision is: Nancy Hess: mix engineer in NYC previously best know through her work with Seven Day Diary and d. camp: filmmaker and recording engineer in Portland, OR. Stereovisions alter ego Lift Music makes music for commercials and film. Watch for the Stereovision/Lift score for the Andy Warhol bio "Factory People" in the late summer in the U.S. and some beautiful animated spots for Comcast through the fall ...
Brad Vachal and Eric Hedford are two bearded colossi of the Portland, Oregon music scene; one a founding father of the dance scene in the Pacific Northwest with a CV that stretches back to the early nineties, the other an original member of the Dandy Warhols, the relatively sane band in the genius Dig movie. They've played together on and off together at Portlands' legendary disco / funk basement party Soul Stew for nearly a decade, and now they're making music with each other for Tirk under the neatly assembled moniker Hedford Vachal.
The Stolen Sweets formed in 2005 with the intention of reviving the songs of 1930s sister act, The Boswell Sisters. Comprised of vocalists Jen Bernard, Lara Michell and Erin Sutherland, guitarists Pete Krebs and David Langenes (both of whom sing) and double bass player Keith Brush, The Sweets' repertoire has expanded to include material from the 1920s -1940s. Their arrangements are still inspired by the Boswells' tight 3-part harmonies, frequent tempo changes and "knowing shrugs and raised eyebrows," as noted by the Oregonian's A&E.
Featuring: Stereovision, Hedford Vachal, Stolen Sweets. Saturday, April 18th @ 9 pm. $10 advance, $10 @ the door. Someday Lounge, 125 NW 5th Ave. 248-1030.
