Just a quick alert to a couple of shows this evening you might want to check out.
November is shaping up to be a month of some much anticipated local CD releases. Tonight at the Doug Fir is the offical CD release show for Stephanie Schneiderman's Dangerous Fruit. This project was a collaboration with electronica musician/producer Keith Schreiner (of Dahlia). It's a sonically adventurous direction for Schneiderman, and from what I've heard so far, both recorded and in concert, it works extremely well.
"Schneiderman’s lead vocals, vivid lyrics, layered harmonies and subtle acoustic guitar riffs blend seamlessly with Schreiner’s undulating looped beats, moody synth patches and unique production style. The traditional seems to amend and compliment the experimental - an ongoing conversation that is continually refreshed on each advancing track." - CD Baby review
To hear more about the new CD, here's a podcast interview from OregonLive.com. Check it out and come to the Doug Fir tonight. Opening will be Kaitlyn ni Donovan and DJ Dave Allen. 9 PM, $12 . . . hope to see you there.
Over at the White Eagle, there'll be a set of fine songwriters performing. Starting at 8 PM and hosted by Rob Barteletti, it will feature Amee McCaa, Nick Peets, and Rob Stroup (of The Imprints and the James Low Band). And to open the evening, Paula Sinclair will be doing the happy hour slot beginning at 5:30. Both shows are Free.
More about the weekend tomorrow . . . some solid entertainment choices including Lloyd Jones with the full band (horns and all!) at the newly remodeled Gemini Pub in Lake O on Saturday. See the post below for a good Sunday event, too. And next week is absolutely full with some ridiculous choices that could break your shrinking music budget. But when you gotta go . . . .
