Photo Review: Panther, Copy, E*Rock at Bunk Bar, Aug. 8


In real time, 2006 was not that long ago. In Portland music time, it might as well be the Stone Age. The scene turns over so fast here that this year's model is often next year's nostalgia. On Aug. 3, three of the most popular local artists from the tail end of the Bush administration staged a miniature reunion at Bunk Bar. Not that any of them really went away to begin with. Eric Mast, a.k.a. ...   More

Photo Review: Polica and Copy, Feb. 18 @ Bunk Bar


It's always great to catch a band live just as its buzz is building, which was exactly the case when it came to up-and-coming electronic act Polica headlining at Bunk Bar this Saturday. The show was heavily sold-out with ticketless hopefuls loitering outside, a jam-packed doorway and an overstuffed main room. After a kinetic set from Copy, the Minneapolis four-piece took to the stage. Never have ...   More

Copy To Debut As Duo At Superfest 2

A few months ago, Copy's Marius Libman decided to do something he'd never done before under his current moniker: Jam with another musician. For a Winter is the New Summer warehouse party, Libman—and his trusty keytar—was joined by drummer Andy Parker of Guidance Counselor and Dirty Mittens. The pair hit it off so well that Libman decided to rope Parker in as Copy's full-time live drummer ...   More

LEAK: Atole, "Strike Zone," Strike Zone 7-Inch (Community Library)

Let's just get this out of the way: I have no idea what the hell Manny Reyes is singing on "Strike Zone." Not that it really matters. Reyes' band Atole has been a constant in Portland's electronic music scene for going on four years now, leaving a trail of sweat and tired feet wherever it plays. The vocals in "Strike Zone" are not intended for you to sit and ponder over—they are meant to freak ...   More

Copy Wants to Make You "Breakfast"

The wait is over. It seems like ages (too many years!) since we've heard any new recorded material from one-man electropop master Copy. But it's not like Marius Libman has been hiding behind a tree branch since 2007—since the release of his second full-length, Hair Guitar, he's put out remixes, joined two new bands (playing bass with Atole and Astrology) and continued to DJ around town. Surely, ...   More
