Under The Bridge: This Week on the Scene // 1-31 thru 2-6



Genders // Tue. – 2-4 // Doug Fir
Genders throwback 90s sound melds nostalgia with progress on their latest release Get Lost, which is filled with slowly built, lightly distorted, jangly dark pop tones that are hard not to fall in love with. Maggie Morris’s voice is unmistakably her own and gives the record both a light-heartedness and a broken-heartedness that are well balanced and appreciated. Having toured with Built to Spill and winning Willamette Weeks best new band 2013, it seems like the Northwest is taking notice. Here’s to hoping the rest of the world does too. (also playing: The Helio Sequence, Modern Kin)

Summer Cannibals // Wed. – 2-5 // Mississippi Studios
With ranging vocals that are strong, delicate, pretty and raw all at the same time (and music that’s smashing and eager), Summer Cannibals have more than a few things going for them right now. Taking influences from pop, punk, shoegaze, and grunge, the Cannibals latest release No Makeup (New Moss records) sounds like what it’s called – a stripped down, gritty release of fuzz-pop grrl art that doesn’t take long at all to get into. Mississippi is a venue whose sound system caters to bands that sound good already; I wouldn’t spend a Wednesday any other way.

Mothertapes // Thu. – 2-6 // Holocene
Mothertapes describe themselves as a “two man experimental rock band,” which leaves a lot to the imagination. I’ve heard “experimental” bands that were only experimenting with how much beer it took to drink before they sounded good. Right out the gate, Mothertapes experimental sound can be heard crushing heads and mashing pop/math/metal/garage and whatever the hell else they so please. Mixing influences from Battles to early Pink Floyd to the White Stripes to Ween, Mothertapes are a band I’ve never heard of that have officially convinced me that I need more and more experimentation in my life. (also playing: Hustle and Drone, Hosannas)


Portland Live




    This is exactly why I have to make the food in the afternoon and take the picture before the husband comes home. Once he sticks his fork into it, it’s gone. This does look delicious. I’m sure making two was not much of a problem. I bet the second dipaasepred as fast as the first one.

    E limitata de faptul ca au un cod scris cu picioarele.E ca si cum ai primi o comanda de a renova o casa. Daca e o casa solida, nu or sa fie mari probleme sa maresti bucataria sau sa darami peretele de la balcon.Daca e o casa din chirpici, atunci trebuie sa fi atent si unde bati un cui, ca s-ar putea sa ti se darame toata casa.De aceea nu m-am bagat si nici nu o sa ma bag vreodata la schimbari de wordpress.


    Balance to limit the workload during the season is indeed a key to playoff success. So no question Z & Seids have to be split. The most natural spot for Corvo would be to re-unite him with Seidenberg. So that would leave either Boychuk or McQuaid to play with Chara. Because I really liked the Ference-Boychuk combo in the playoffs, I voted for Quaider. But there are no wrong answers here. Anyway, with Claude behind the bench, we all know we’ll probably see ALL of those possible combinations at some point during the 82 games season…
