Join us for our 7th Anniversary Party!
Saturday, April 27th from 5-10pm
Music, festivities and cheer to celebrate 7 years of Sou’wester Wonder!!
Just added *** Fronjentress and Dustin Hamman (of run on sentence)!!!!!
A dark and dreamy power duo featuring Alicia J. Rose (Miss Murgatroid) on accordion, synth and vocals and Shawna Gore (Captain Vs. Crew) on drums. Rose’s rich, commanding vocals soar over Gore’s fast and furious beats, the accordion and synth forging new wave song spells about power dynamics, witchy mysticism, and all manner of twisted souls. Reminiscent of early Siouxsie, Patti Smith and Kate Bush, these PDX dark-pop heroines are bringing much needed light to a quickly darkening world.
Rachel is a drummer and multi-instrumentalist who composes her own music and performs and records both under her name, and under her moniker Arch Cape. She has toured all over the world and recorded with many widely acclaimed artists including The Decemberists, M.Ward, Bright Eyes, Califone, Mirah, Tara Jane O’Neil, Michael Hurley, Sam Beam/Jesca Hoop, Laura Gibson and Death Vessel.
VooVol is bassist and vocalist Kadi Rae Smith (Oro Azoro) and drummer Shana Lindbeck (Orquestra Pacifico Tropical). The duo, sonically only utilizing two instruments, engages low-fi, soulful rhythms with operatic, haunting vocals & stripped down percussion. This new project by these long time friends and occasional collaborators is an opportunity for them to create and contribute their voice to the collective, musical universe.
This event is free, all ages, and open to the public!
