Video: "Never Be Your Lover/Jam (live at Mississippi Studios)," Typhoon

typhoon

Music
Ask any local music fan who won 2011 and the answer is clearly Typhoon. From appearing on David Letterman to having its EP, A New Kind of House, named the best of the year by Paste Magazine, it's been a stellar 12 months for the Portland google-tet (seriously, how many people are in this fucking band, anyway?). As a cap to its banner year, the group sold out three shows at Mississippi Studios earlier ...   More

Live Review: Wax Fingers, Saturday, March 13 @ Mississippi Studios


Music
When you toy with time signature changes as much as Wax Fingers do, it's hard for a fan to keep up. Three head bobs is all you get before your downward nod has switched from the accent to the offbeat. Realizing this and eager to keep up, the Wax Fingers faithful have invented a dance I'd like to call “The Catch Up.” The dance involves helpless flaying, air drumming, and a fish-out-of-water ...   More

Live Review: Everybody Was in the French Resistance...Now!, Thursday, April 29 @ Mississippi Studios


Music
On a disappointing night that saw the Blazers exit the playoffs after an emotional six-game series, Eddie Argos' new group brought some comic relief to Mississippi Studios. More like story time with Eddie than a full-fledged concert, the Art Brut frontman brought his three piece satire group to a small north Portland audience.
