The month of May marks the first occasion of the Northwest’s festival calendar to the tune of 70+ artists at Sasquatch Music Festival. Around March it becomes hot topic in any circle. “Are you going to Sasquatch?” is common conversation starter and space filler amongst many and as the anxiety and hype slowly build, the event draws nearer.

1. Other Lives w/ JBM
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $10/$12
When: Thursday, December 8 –9pm
Why: After a stellar tour with Bon Iver, the Oklahoma nears closer to the verge of blowing up. Tamer Animals, the band’s latest album, is hauntingly gorgeous and begs to be played from beginning to end. It’s no wonder they were chosen to support Radiohead on their 2012 US tour early next year. Most likely they will play a larger venue next time around, so don’t miss out on this intimate evening!
2. Ty Segall (special performance) w/ Mikal Cronin
Where: East End (Happy Birthday, EE!)
How Much: $11
When: Friday, December 9 –9pm
Why: As part of the month-long birthday celebration, Ty Segall will play a special solo set. After a slew of releases this year, it surely will be a treat to hear what the Orange County native plays. Joining him is collaborator and best bud, Mikal Cronin. Cronin released his self-titled debut full of psychedelic pop and power chords in September. There’s no better place to spend your Friday night.
3. Papercuts w/ Tim Cohen’s Magic Trick
Where: Bunk Bar
How Much: $10
When: Saturday, December 10 –9pm
Why: Songwriter/producer, Jason Quever, is the man behind the indie-pop project, Papercuts. The 2011 release, Fading Parade, is atmospheric, lush, and wonderfully melodic. The comparisons to a lo-fi version of The Byrds are nearly dead-on with the warm and dreamy sounds emanating from Quever’s vocals and guitars. This show will sell out, so get there early!

Since emerging from the woods in 2008, Bon Iver (Justin Vernon) has astounded the indie scene with his vocal and instrumental melodies that stem from a dark place in the forests of Wisconsin. Vernon’s self-titled second album matched the first in form, function, and beauty. Multi-instruentalism seemed to be the theme of the evening.
1. Radiation City (CD Release) w/ Blouse and Aan
Where: Doug Fir Lounge
How Much: $8
When: Saturday, September 24 – 8pm
Why: Being heralded as one of the most polished young acts in Portland, Radiation City is returning home from a nationwide tour just in time to drop the much awaited album The Hands That Take You (Reviewed as one of This Month’s Best in Eleven PDX 1.4). Bring dancing shoes for the toe-tapping tunes that will invariably be showered on all attendees of the performance this Saturday with awesome friends Blouse and Aan.
