Saturday, October 8th - Fever, Lynnae Gryffin

We're immensely excited to host these two wonderful performances, kicking off the fall seasons. Get ready for an evening of smoke-filled ballads!

Fever plays very charming and interesting pieces that echoes the compositions from PJ Harvey and has a noir-esque feel to their songs.  There's a lot of mystery and thought put into Fever's songs and they look to put a lot of energy into their performances, including performing with dance troupes from time to time and have a very collaborative presence in their shows.  Often times they play electric, but this will be a special acoustic show for them, so this will be a show not to miss!  I just learned that the band moved to Portland from Oklahoma, so let's welcome them to town!

I have recently come across the music from Lynnae Gryffin and I have been stunned ever since.  Her album Abigail is a wonderful record filled with intimate songs with a lot of spacial composition and intricate melodies with a great deal of ghost notes and melodies that creates a really interesting feel to her songs.  Lynnae's songs sometimes echo the past works of Joan of Arc, which is an immense compliment.  You will not be dissapointed!

There will most definitely be a fire for this show, so warm up and bring your whiskey!
