Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.

Wet Dream Song Release

Wet Dream just premiered their song “See Foam Run,” off their upcoming album Future Nostalgic. The dream-pop band manages to peacefully blend the more wistful elements of their music with the more upbeat backing. “See Foam Run” creates a unique and lovely combination of moods. It feels lost but not lonely, guided by an earnest desire to explore the darkness it finds itself in. Listening to the song feels like looking at yourself in the mirror surrounded by shadowy neon lighting. It's a beautiful piece of exploration. 

Future Nostalgic will be out on August 7th.

Birthday Bash at The Liquor Store

The Liquor Store’s throwing a birthday party for the lovely Heavenli, and they were generous enough to open it to the public. It’s going to have an eclectic group of artists playing, making for one sick lineup. Four great acts will be playing; dynamic power-pop group Ex-Kids, Portland’s dreamiest punks Cry Babe, queer and feminist punk rockers Cockeye, and experimental hip hop group Sumalienz. Plus, all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood so it’s a great night for a good cause.

 The show will be this Thursday, June 20th at the Liquor Store. Tickets are $7, and doors open at 9.
