The Empty
"After more than a decade in the Pacific Northwest music scene, Portland trio The Empty has crafted a sound that is instantly recognizable to local music followers, with angular dance-oriented bass and synthetic beats anchoring waves of verbed-out vocals and elastic surf-pop guitars. The band’s subtly experimental DIY production approach and affinity for sticky-sweet melodies combine to make songs that are equally suited to ear bud introspection and beered-up concert halls. Following up on 2014’s breakthrough album Lost Levels, The Empty’s 2017 release entitled 'Moonbather', returns the band to its fuzz rock roots while showcasing a tighter control over its signature production magic."
Brakemouth - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
“Brakemouth is Casey Frantum, a one-man avalanche of guitar-driven electronica, operating high atop prefab samples, typically in the form of synthesizers and neatly ironed drums…The highlight is “Wires,” a potluck of everything good about ’80s music. The keyboards and percussion mesh to that sweet spot where you almost can’t differentiate the two, affording the song a deep, sturdy heartbeat…”
