Butter - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Butter
Aaron Schmidt, Thomas Shipley, and Jarrett Tracy of Portland, OR trio BUTTER carefully craft pop tunes that feature stories about love, loss, and sometimes just not being able to fit in. Syncopated guitar lines, modulated bass, and agile drums accompany impassioned and melodic vocals. Arrangements and tones are fine tuned to deliver songs that are downright infectious. After fine tuning their set in venues and house parties across their hometown and the west coast, BUTTER looks forward to bringing their upbeat brand of alt pop to many more stages to come.
Shannon Entropy - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Shannon Entropy
Shannon Entropy, like it’s namesake, is not easily defined.

Just as Claude Shannon’s information theory, or entropy, is much more than a tendency of systems to move toward disorder, it feels dishonest to quickly categorize Shannon Entropy and move on with your day, kept comfortable by the illusion of understanding and simple categorization. Rather, when one puts on a pair of headphones and dives deep into Shannon Entropy’s intricately assembled soundscapes, a picture slowly starts to reveal itself – one that thankfully will remain incomplete and ever-evolving as this young band matures and continues to challenge itself.

As dark as it is light, as poppy as it is rocky, and as challenging as it is listenable, Shannon Entropy has tapped into a sound that, much like Claude Shannon’s heady information theory, is hard to pin down, and that’s the best part. When you peal off the headphones, you might realize you are less confident about what this band is and where they are going than when you started. All you are convinced of, is that you need to start again from the top.

Shannon Entropy’s first full-length release, Out There Ideas, will be released June 16th on all major platforms. Produced by Jordan Richter, Febian Perez, and Cameron Spies and recorded at Hallowed Halls and Room 13 Studios, Out There Ideas will be the band’s first major statement and a bold bid for wider recognition.
