Best known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains. While his vast and bizarre catalog of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships has yielded cult hits, such as "Salame", "Father & Son" and "Puberty", his new 3-piece backing band, lead by indie rock singer/songwriter Mo Troper, propels Liebe Hart into previously unexplored territory.
Throughout the past decade Liebe Hart has garnered a substantial and dedicated fanbase, not only from his TV and film appearances but from his stints on the road performing music all across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. His followers are supportive and loyal, won over by David's sincerity and endearing idiosyncrasies, as well his engaging stage shows.
Mo Troper is a Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter who has released several critically acclaimed "power pop" albums, has toured extensively with his backing band, and co-owns indie label Good Cheer Records.
Together, Liebe Hart and Troper put on a show guaranteed to please old fans and new ones alike. The band performs old favorites and new songs along with puppets, projected video accompaniment, and David's oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.

THE WORLD'S GREATEST HONKY TONK SHOW U.S. TOUR 2018 The Eskimo Brothers have become known one of Nashville's can't miss live shows. The honky tonk trio has honed their stage show and sound from nearly 300 shows per year and thousands of gig hours in the Music City honky tonks over the past 5 years. When not playing their usual residencies in Nashville and Memphis, the band tours throughout the United States. The band's signature raw and rowdy sound appeals to a wide audience, and much of it can be attributed to their own vast influences. Every Eskimo Brothers song has a qualities that are essential to a Country melody and content, but played with the attitude that draws a Rock fan to a genre that they would usually not listen to. The first and foremost obligation of the Eskimo Brothers since the band's first formation was to make sure every listener and show attendee has a good time through music. Second was sticking to a honest and raucous roots musical formula. Their wide range of influences in the Classic Country and Rock N' Roll music has given the band a driving tempo with blue collar stories of the road and heartache. The Eskimo Brothers have finished recording their latest album "Hands & Knees" at Awake Studios in Nashville, TN and are touring in promotion of the release. The album has been released on CD and digitally in August 2017. In the band's latest effort, they have dabbled with a wide range of styles of American roots music to give the listener a ride through a true honky tonk experience by way of their headphones, car stereo, or any pole barn in the world. The Eskimo Brothers features David Graham ({Portland, OR) on guitar and vocals, Bill Van Vleet (Knoxville, TN) on drums, and Mark Robertson (Los Angeles, CA) on bass and vocals

Shemekia Copeland never holds back. Her instantly recognizable voice--capable of being sultry, assertive and roaring--delivers every song with unparalleled honesty and passion. Her wide-open vision of contemporary Americana roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with an up-to-the-minute musical and lyrical approach. With her new Alligator Records album, America's Child, Copeland confidently announces an electrifying new chapter in her constantly evolving story. Produced by Americana Instrumentalist Of The Year winner Will Kimbrough (who also plays guitar on the album) and recorded in Nashville, America's Child is a courageous and fiery statement of purpose, a major step forward for the singer whose musical consciousness continues to expand as her star continues to rise. America's Child is by far Copeland's most compelling work yet, with music swelling beyond blues and into spirited Americana, with elements of rock, soul, and country. From America's Child's anthemic opening track, Ain't Got Time For Hate, to the closing lullaby, the traditional Go To Sleepy Little Baby, Shemekia sings with passion and insight about the chaos and uncertainty in the world while still finding joy all around her. With guests including John Prine, Rhiannon Giddens, Mary Gauthier, Emmylou Harris, Steve Cropper, J.D. Wilkes, Al Perkins and members of the Time Jumpers, America's Child bursts with Copeland's bravado and embraces with her tenderness.  Gauthier and songwriter/executive producer John Hahn wrote two striking songs for the project. Smoked Ham And Peaches is a search for truth and tranquility in America, featuring Giddens on African banjo. Americans celebrates our collective diversity in all its forms and colors. American music legend Prine joins Shemekia for a stirring duet on his own Great Rain. Guitar great Cropper adds his scorching playing to the ballad Promised Myself,written by Shemekia's father, the late bluesman Johnny Clyde Copeland. And her version of I'm Not Like Everybody Else transforms the Kinks song into a blues-fueled declaration of independence. Upon the birth of her son Johnny Lee Copeland in 2017, Shemekia, with fresh eyes, began to take an even deeper look at the state of the world. Of the new album, she says, "After having a child, I started thinking about the world I brought him into, how it actually is and how I wished it was and all the things he will have to go through. And to live in this world today, you have to have a strong foundation like I did to make it through. So that's what 'America's child' means to me. I'm truly grateful to all the artists that joined me on this record--it wasn't about the genre for anyone, it was about the music and mutual love and respect."When Shemekia broke on the scene at age 18 in 1998 with her groundbreaking Alligator Records debut CD Turn The Heat Up, she instantly became a blues and R&B force to be reckoned with. News outlets from The New York Times to CNN praised Copeland's talent, larger-than-life personality, and true star power. With each subsequent release, Copeland's music has continued to grow.

Gatherers of the World, Killing Joke are delighted to announce their 40th anniversary World tour, Laugh At Your Peril.

To celebrate this extensive and ambitious tour, Killing Joke announce the release of the career spanning strictly limited edition flight case, which includes: 16 coloured double vinyls, a set of headphones, a signed lyric book and assorted pieces of art. The collection will also be available on CD.

'Forty years ago this summer I met Big Paul, one year later we released our first EP. Our fortieth anniversary celebrations will therefore be stretched over 2 years and begins with a world tour, parties and talks by youth and myself, a new magnum opus by KJ, who is ,after all this time, recongised as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time. Love is the law let the festivities begin!!! " Jaz.need to clarify exact wording by Jaz

"Forty years in the wilderness ...Thought that was supposed to be 40 days.

As Jaz reminds me "Survival is success" and although the band have never been fiscally fat commercially, it has allowed us to have incredible lives, both individually and collectively and we have created a very rich wealth of uncompromising music. It's a legacy, that spans 4 decades ....40years of spine tingling, uncompromising beautiful noise.

The band continue to inspire and bludgeon down the bullshit in the world into a white hot, blast furnace Dub of unrelenting passion, a rollercoaster, white knuckle punch in the face of beautiful agony/reality and timeless cosmic joy and soul.

To commit to the creative beauty and vision you have as an artist, is an almost perverse way to live a life and the cost and consequences are immense...yet this is how we inform ourselves as a society, of what is real and important In a world of fake news and fake emotions ...Like Shiva dancing the world into existence, we are all simultaneously destroying and creating every moment of our reality . It is not though politics that the world is changed but through Art. Art alone can tell us who we really are, emotionally, intellectually and physically, far better than anything else. That us why we have committed so much, for so long to this one idea ...Killing Joke

Thanks to all the fans and gatherers that have supported and joined us in this endless quest." Youth.

Killing Joke will start the tour in the United States at the Studio Seven in Seattle on Saturday, 1st September before heading into mainland Europe. This run of 45 shows concludes in London on Saturday, 17th November.

Very much music as ritual - raw, uncompromising and precisely-targeted lyrically; Jaz Coleman, Geordie, Youth & Big Paul, the original Killing Joke personnel, are currently delivering the best and most relevant material of their career, with no mellowing or softening of the edges getting in the way.

With collective nostrils flared and righteous anger carried torch-high, Killing Joke continue to take their music of resistance to fresh levels, both in the studio and out on the road...

VIP Package includes: - Access to Sound Check - Pre Show Meet & Greet (only guaranteed with Jaz Coleman and Youth) - T-Shirt - Tour Poster

$200 Upgrade (does not include concert ticket)

Bloco Alegria presents the 3rd Annual Equinox Carnaval

Bloco Alegria, Portland's own Rio-style samba band, invites you to celebrate the changing of the seasons with an electrifying evening of vibrant sights and sounds! Our Bloco will be joined by many special guests, including master percussionist from Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo "Dudu" Fuentes! Dudu has been working with Bloco Alegria over the last six months, culminating in this exciting night to remember!

More about Dudu Fuentes: Master percussionist Eduardo "Dudu" Fuentes is one of Rio de Janeiro's foremost percussionists, and a very popular instructor at California Brazil Camp which is held every year in Cazadero, California. As former director and principal arranger of the popular Carnaval bloco, Bangalafumenga, Dudu is recognized for creating percussion arrangements that have breathed new life into Brazilian rhythms. Dudu's unique style of adapting folkloric Brazilian rhythms like ciranda, côco, maculelê and ijexá for samba bateria instruments has taken him around the world teaching workshops in Europe, Asia and the United States. Formerly a member and teacher for the award-winning group, Monobloco, Dudu currently teaches and arranges for his new bloco, Batucalacatuca (BaTUcalacaTUca). He also is part of Du Rio, a band created along with other members of Monobloco. When Dudu is not working with his blocos, he parades in the baterias of various Rio samba schools including São Clemente, Imperio Serrano and Portela.

More about Bloco Alegria: Bloco Alegria is Portland's own Rio style samba band. Playing the heart-pumping rhythms of Rio's carnaval parades is what gives this band its unique sound and vibrancy.

Kneebody's sound is... explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level nuanced chamber ensemble playing, with highly wrought compositions that are balanced with adventurous no-holds-barred improvising. All "sounds-like" references can be set aside; this band has created a genre and style all its own.

Kneebody bassist Kaveh Rastegar thinks of their sound this way, "Personally, I think calling Kneebody "jazz" or "electric jazz" is fantastic because then we can move on from that hang up and play our music -- and alter expectations of what 'jazz' is."

Kneebody is keyboardist Adam Benjamin, trumpeter Shane Endsley, electric bassist Kaveh Rastegar, saxophonist Ben Wendel and drummer Nate Wood. The band has no leader or rather, each member is the leader; they've developed their own musical language, inventing a unique cueing system that allows them each to change the tempo, key, style, and more in an instant.

In 2015, Kneebody's groundbreaking collaboration with electronic musician Daedelus on Kneedelus was released on Flying Lotus' imprint Brainfeeder records to praise from critics and audiences alike. Kneebody also released Anti-Hero, their Motéma Records debut album, in March of 2017

Donny McCaslin

As the bandleader on David Bowie's final album Blackstar, saxophonist Donny McCaslin witnessed firsthand the musician's penchant for reinvention. With his upcoming studio album -- a daring fusion of vibrant electronica, and bombastic alt-rock due this fall -- McCaslin applied that mindset to his own work. "Before working with him, things like this didn't seem possible to me," McCaslin says of his new material, which arrives two decades into an acclaimed career. "The affirmation of that project and how wonderfully that turned out artistically -- I feel like anything is possible now."

The first taste McCaslin has offered from his forthcoming full-length is "What About the Body," a raucous, propulsive blast of improvisational alternative music that encapsulates his bold new direction. For the single, McCaslin recruited Blackstar bassist Tim Lefebvre and "brilliant songwriter and lyricist" Ryan Dahle (Limblifter, Mounties). The track's heady blend of saxophone and flute, pianos and Wurlitzer, electric bass and pummeling drums captures McCaslin's core roots while also bringing in more recent influences such as Radiohead and Bon Iver. And delivered by Dahle, the tune's forceful lyrics -- "Left-wing, right-wing / What about the body?" -- hint at modern unrest. "One interpretation could be the state of America right now," McCaslin explains. "To me, that's a provocative thought: What about the body, the soul of America?" Taken together, the elements signify McCaslin's next thrilling chapter.
