Live Review: Lost Lander at Mississippi Studios, 2/27

lostlander_tt-11

Music
Much to the joy of the sold-out crowd, Lost Lander played primarily from its brand new release, Medallion, at its hometown record release show at Mississippi Studios on Feb. 27. It's a glistening pop record that marks a departure from the more nuanced dream-rock of its debut, DRRT. Bigger stages are almost certainly in Lost Lander’s future, given its anthemic new sound, and as Friday’s show ...   More

Live Review: Zola Jesus at Mississippi Studios, Jan. 9

zolajesus_rh-02

Music
The great unveiling came just before Zola Jesus’ headlining set at Mississippi Studios on Jan. 9, when a particularly resourceful stage manager ascended to the balcony and lifted a tarp to reveal a crystalline cardboard pyramid lit from within. The thing looked like it had been damaged in shipping, with the top bent at an odd angle. It looked like a middle school science experiment. Maybe from ...   More

That has now been confirmed: An 850-seat event space, dubbed Revolution Hall, is tentatively slated to open on the site of the long-shuttered Buckman neighborhood campus in February 2015.

Music
If Casey Dienel was nervous to play in Portland for the first time since she moved away a few years ago, she sure didn’t show. “I have some bangers to play,” she said, taking the stage behind her keyboard and bank of equipment. “But I’m not going to give them to you for a little while, because that’s what you expect.”  Recording under the name White Hinterland, Dienel’s music is ...   More

Live Review: Merchandise at Mississippi Studios, Oct. 3

09-merchandise-mississippi-studios

Music
Perhaps I was mistaken about Merchandise.  If Friday’s sparsely-attended show at Mississippi Studios was any indication, maybe they are a punk band after all—in the pejorative sense at the very least. Led by the antics of slightly toasted singer/guitarist Carson Cox, these guys collectively did not seem to give two fucks. The music shimmered and excelled within Mississippi’s pristine ...   More
