Flocke brings droney chamber pop to Union Pool tonight (08.31)

The brainchild of musician Nicole Mercedes (who released this album under her own name in 2012), Flocke is feel-good chamber pop for the soul. Amidst a gentle orchestration involving acoustic guitars, droney orchestral elements, light percussions, ukuleles and xylophones, in her only single currently available online entitled “Venice” (streaming below) Nicole adopts stream of consciousness lyrics, taking us along with her on this mental journey, and occasionally declaring “Venice is a state of mind.” You can catch her at Union Pool with Gingerlys, Wilder Maker, and Friend Roulette tonight (August 31st) where she’ll be sure to play more than just one single. - Madeleine Grossman

New Fossil Jane EP Available for Streaming & Download

Pittsburgh transplant Olivia Price, a.k.a. Fossil Jane, has released a new EP Will You?/You Will. As the door to these bedroom-folk songs opens, one notices the sparse solemn beauty. It feels bare, but then the reawakening of synth and vocal harmony emerge, providing a momentous illumination. (Photo by Brian Walker)





New Track: "Dirge" - Eric Slick

As the final days of summer creep upon us, Eric Slick has revealed another impressive new single from his upcoming solo effort, Palisades. "Dirge" comfortably meanders along as its protagonist languidly attempts to shed the thoughts and memories of his past relationship(s). Feel free to play it over and over again, at home, alone in your room, or just send it to someone that you once loved!

American Trappist Opening for Oldermost at JB's Aug. 27

A commanding presence draws one towards the songs of American Trappist, the new project from Joe Michelini (formerly of River City Extension). After releasing three EPs in succession, compromising the totality of his self-titled debut album, which will be available on September 2 via Death Salon, American Trappist places spellbinding lyricism at the forefront. While the context shifts from the ghostly mysterious to a heartfelt, emotional spectrum, it’s equally captivating in sincerity, shrouded in Americana. The gripping, soulful folk of Candice Martello, a.k.a. Hemming, opens the evening. She'll be performing solo, which may give her the freedom to unleash some new material. Oldermost closes out the bill, providing a sense of calm. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

American Trappist - Nothing Short of Faithful from Brian L. Tice Jr.





Project Pabst and MFNW's Fusion Sells Out Tickets

Last year, news broke that MusicfestNW was somewhat merging, somewhat absorbing one of the newest fest's to hit the PNW, Project Pabst. With skepticism concert goers awaited for the new superfest to announce its lineup and now that the fest is here, they're proving a fruitful merger by selling out their weekend pass tickets and individual tickets for Sunday. 

Headlining Project Pabst will be Ice Cube and Duran Duran on Saturday and Ween and Tame Impala on Sunday, so of course it makes sense why Sunday's bill is sold out. Since the reuniting of Ween last year, their sporadic playing of shows has fans devouring tickets like crazy. 

Festivities for PP technically started last night with a comedy show at Dante's featuring Toddy Barry, Bryan Cook and Joann Schinderle, and with hip hop mainstays Digable Planets and Camp Lo at the Crystal Ballroom.

Local, more underground artists seem to be dominating the Project Pabst night shows (with the exception of Kyle Craft, who is blowing up and will be opening up the weekend fest tomorrow at 1 p.m.!), with Y La Bamba, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, Haley Heynderickx, Candace and Talkative all playing tonight. Zirakzigil, Muscle and Marrow, And And And, Souvenir Driver, Rilla, Grand Lake Islands, and Summer Cannibals all play tomorrow night, with Last Artful, Dodgr and My Body opening up for Shy Girls Sunday.

Make note of the fact that Project Pabst's weekend day shows are no longer at their usual Zidell Yards, but are now held at MusicfestNW's location of the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Tickets to the weekend shows (minus individual ones for Saturday) are sold out, but ticket purchase for PP night shows are still available.

To find the Project Pabst schedule, purchase Saturday tickets and to find out just where and when the Project Pabst night shows are, visit the festival's website.
