R. Stevie Moore, Lake, Paleo

8:30 pm., Monday February 25 | $10 advance, $12 day of show.
1001 SE Morrison St.

[PROGRESSIVE POP] No offense, Ariel Pink, but R. Stevie Moore’s been king of depressive four-track bedroom recordings for 10 years longer than you’ve been alive. Moore’s prog-pop sensibilities stretch thin at times over his immense catalog of 400 releases, many of which were only available as mail-order CD-Rs or cassettes. But embracing the bad, the good and the obscurity that comes with this forced mediocrity seems to be the point. Last year’s Ku Klux Glam, Moore’s third collaboration with longtime fan Pink, registers no less than 62 tracks. Many are gems, like the drab back-and-forth of “SteviePink Javascript,” while others, like “Sacred Snow Duo,” seem like recordings of Drano-slurred calls to the poison-control hotline. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the 61-year-old Moore has already released two albums in 2013, the mundane, wordplay-obsessed Burst Upon the Scene and the $949 “for fans only” New World Elder. (Both albums, as with most of Moore’s recordings, can be streamed via his Bandcamp.) Given that he only started touring seriously in 2011, this show is a singular opportunity to see the rougher-hewn side of pop come out of its bedroom hiding.
