Eternal Tapestry

Moon Duo at Mississippi Studios 4.28.14

Portland is thriving in its scene of all things psychedelic; which is part of the reason why guitarist Ripley Johnson (of Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada call Portland their home. Their band, Moon Duo has made a giant splash in the psychedelic pool on a worldwide scale after releasing Circles towards the end of 2012. Sanae’s use of the electronic keyboards and drum machines adds elements to make their very own sound. At its base, it is dark, guitar driven rock and roll that is layered with the unique sounds you would hear in electronica and Ripley’s soft vocals. Each of these segments open up a lot of room for Johnson to slash through an amazing guitar solo. Moon Duo play Mississippi Studios this Monday with Eternal Tapestry and Tokyo based psych rippers Kikagaku Moyo; doors at 8pm, show at 9pm, $10 in advance and $12 day of. - Colin Hudson

Portland Music's Excellent Adventure: Treefort Music Fest

If you're one of the lucky ones who is making it out to Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho this weekend, you're probably losing your mind right now. And with good reason, as your life is likely to change forever. To make things easier for you, we've dug through this year's lineup to highlight the overwhelming amount of Portland bands whose performances this weekend demand your presence. Persuasion is done best quickly and carefully. Pay close attention.

Two-piece Nurses are constantly reinventing your definition of experimental pop. The Shivas toss your body and mind back into a time where bopping superseded twerking. The woodsy and folksy Great Wilderness are fronted by subtly demanding vocals. And And And is playful but not too playful but really fun to let loose to while actually still being serious. AU is destined to cover your body with goosebumps. Ernest Hip Hatchet coats simplistic guitar melodies with authentic lyricism. Animal Eyes never let their energy down. Sallie Ford is embarking on her own adventure, so it wouldn't be in your best interests to miss the beginning of something beautiful. Sama Dams are the noteworthy avant garde three-piece in the scene. Tiburones echo all that make you actually feel like a human being, pulling at your heart strings and beyond. Genders could easily fall into your definition as a comforting band, while at the same time pushing you to get yourself into unlikely situations. Like A Villain AKA Holland Andrews will leave you never feeling the same. Hustle and Drone widen your eyes and move your body in ways you'd probably just do alone in the privacy of an empty space. Sun Angle are famously furious, wild and will make you laugh whether you're into that sort of thing or not. Summer Cannibals match that amount of energy, bringing forth their youthful disposition. Eternal Tapestry pull from Eastern influences and force vivid imagery with or without actual projections. Wooden Indian Burial Ground aggressively shakes your world close to oblivion. Aan will bring you back and Magic Mouth will allow you to gently waltz back into the real world.
This year's festival will be one to remember. - Colette Pomerleau
