Dad Watson's Festival of Americana: Shook Twins, Pete Krebs and his Portland Playboys

BRANDON WIDDER
6 pm., Sunday August 18 | $10.
Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[AMERICANARAMA NW] So Bob Dylan, Wilco and My Morning Jacket ditched the Pacific Northwest on their AmericanaramA tour—a sincere “gosh dangit” moment—but who needs ’em anyway? DadFest pays tribute to Stumptown’s old-timey heritage with a laundry list of local folkies, games like corn hole and an onsite straight-shave barber to boot. Shook Twins headlines with its quirky, sisterly harmonies and equally eccentric instrumentation: ocarina, telephone microphone, etc. Pete Krebs and company will also be laying down their foot-stompin’ Western swing, while Wayward Vessel performs a set showcasing why the band placed second in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest.
