Tiburones

Beat the Heat with a Little Bit of Intimacy

We're not talking about sexual intimacy here, though by all means get freaky. But tonight, a nice relaxing night will hit Bunk Bar with acoustic force. 

Nick Delffs translated his mammoth aptitude for guitar playing and songwriting from his established Shakey Hands project to his work with Tiburones, but more relevantly, in his solo effort Death Songs. His rich vocal quality adds dimension to his production, and also helps keep his "one man on stage" live performances intriguing. Expect this performance to include a mixture of not yet released material as well as favorites from his vast discography.

Leaving his usual post as the frontman of the more heavier rock band And And And, Nathan Baumgartner will be sharing some of the band's past, present and future songs in their original form, as they all begin acoustically during the writing process. Baumgartner's knack for creating songs of emotional turmoil will only be showcased more when backed by the personal playing of them on an acoustic guitar.

Joining Delffs and Baumgartner will be Christopher Francis and his soul-infused folk, swaddled by his crooning, husky voice. You might recognize him from playing with the Portland Cello Project, but you'll definitely remember him for his solo efforts.

Tickets to tonight's show are only $5, with music starting at 9 pm.

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 The Shivas toss your body and mind back into a time where bopping superseded twerking.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 

Old Age, Tiburones and the Builders and the Butchers at Doug Fir 1.10

Doug Fir will be different this Friday night. You'll be stepping deep down below for sound heaven. Tiburones and Old Age are opening for the Builders and the Butchers, delivering sensory excursions one after another. Tiburones will give you all that is charmingly unbalanced, thriving folk music with a dust of a dangerous underground. This is perfect music to play while faking your own death and hosting a wild summer picnic simultaneously. Initially being Luz Elena Mendoza of Y La Bamba and Nick Delffs of the Shaky Hands and Death Songs, the collection and creation has grown to an amazing 5-piece destined to expand your sound experience. Old Age, another intimate Portland secret, imply mental torture with the mention of endless local weather and heartfelt vocals. Meet the soundtrack to your new year. - Colette Pomerleau
