Turn! Turn! Turn! Keeping Tonight's Show Despite General Strike

Portland is a city of protesting. Our propensity to come together in revolt against major issues afflcting society is one of the greater characteristics of the city, as is what is offered locally in music. Today, most of the country has been participating in the General Strike against President fuck up Donald Trump prior to Monday's President's Day. Those striking haven't been partaking in any activities, especially ones that benefit the country's capatlistic benefit. 

For the most part, everyone wants to aid in spreading this message of strong displeasure, which obviously leaves venues with things scheduled today at a bit of an impasse. Northeast all ages venue Turn! Turn! Turn! was presented with this same problem, and has decided to move forward with the great show they have scheduled for tonight, where Blesst Chest, Sad Horse and Lithics are set to play.

On the decision, Turn! Turn! Turn! said:

After much deliberation between Turn! Turn! Turn!, its employees, the bands and others willing to share their input, we have decided to be open and have our show as scheduled February 17, the day of the general strike. This was a difficult decision, as everyone involved with this show sympathizes with the aims of the strike. Ultimately, we had the opportunity to do more good by having the show than not. To that end, we are making the show free so you don’t have to open your wallet. However, we will be accepting donations at the door for IRCO (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization) and Portland Homeless Family Solutions. In addition, Turn! will be offering an all-Portland tap list and spirits by Portland distilleries. Those willing and able to spend a few bucks at the bar will also be supporting IRCO and PHFS, as we’ll donate between 25% (for non-donated kegs) and 50% for donated kegs to these organizations. 

End your day of striking the right way by heading up to Northeast Killingsworth with some cash in hand.

New Hand Grenade Job tracks build off the band's minimalist punk sound

The two teaser tracks from the forthcoming Hand Grenade Job album highlight the band’s minimalist punk sound. Eerie, mystical, and somewhat mournful, the tracks feature the unusual instrumentation and solemn vocals that defined earlier HGJ releases. Often vocally monotone, but always harmonically tonal, the music is evocative, and pleasing for the ear.

Here’s “July” from the album Devotionals, set to be released February 22nd.

Weekend Warrior, February 17 - 19

Cayetana began the year teaming up with Melbourne’s Camp Cope on a split release. And last week, to the elation of their fans, the Philly indie-rock trio shared a teaser video via Facebook for its forthcoming LP, New Kind of Normal, which is scheduled for release on March 5. For those who simply can’t wait to hear some new tunes, the band is currently on tour with Lemuria, who have come together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their beloved album, Get Better, and will be rolling into town ready to rock this Saturday at the First Unitarian Church. They’ll also be joined by tourmate Don Giovanni’s Mikey Erg. This is definitely going to be a rare evening of music at one of Philly’s most historic DIY spaces. - Alexis V.

Stalgia releases new video for "BDY"

Sensuality takes center stage on Stalgia’s latest video for their indie-electronic fused single “BDY.” The Los Angeles duo highlights desire and pairs the synergism with a back-bone of alternative R&B, resulting in a simple shot build directed by Nova Rockafella. As Lauren Day falls into the immersion of what is felt when “The rhythms of my body feed off you,” the after math becomes a sensory exploration. Focusing on intimate shots fueling the build of the video, Rockafella’s direction maintains a fresh feel by mirroring Stalgia’s sound. Jumping from party scenes, to stripped-down shots of Day understanding the meaning of touch, “BDY” embodies everything it is to carry a heartfelt desire. - Janette Ayub

A Deli premiere: Steady Sun unveils "Benthos" + play Arlene's on 03.10

NYC psych rockers Steady Sun's latest single, which we are premiering below, bears the aquatic title "Benthos," a term used to describe the flora and fauna found on the bottom of a body of water. Music and water have many things in common, in particular a fluid, "streamy" nature. But the concept of underwater recalls an extra set of attributes (like "dreamy, calm, slow-moving") that perfectly fit the profile of a mellow, psychedelic song. The track, with its plodding pace and dreamy atmosphere, certainly keeps faith to its title. Dylan Nowik's warm falsetto draws semi-unintelligible but arresting melodies, while ghostly strings and backing vocals float in a pool of reverb, creating a sonic environment that's as surreal as it is serene. If you dig this tune, check out the quintet's 2016 EP 'FLORA' and don't miss their upcoming show at Arlene's Grocery on March 10, opening for Indigo King. Check out also their previous single "Life At One Twenty Two," at the bottom of this page.
