[FREAK FOLK, ETC.] I should thank the Big Ass Boombox Festival for living up to its promise of introducing the city to an untapped well of local music. Tonight’s lineup features a band that, without the anticipation of this event, I might not have listened to anytime soon. Portland’s Eidolons delivers an auspicious guitar-fueled sound that dips into areas between freak folk and math rock. On top of the immediate allure of the group’s washy and intelligent guitar riffs, frontman Dan Byers possesses a subtle croon reminiscent of Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste mashed with Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch. With the relatively aggressive folk-rock group Pigeons closing out the festivities, this evening brims with an array of undiscovered Portland potential.
