The Resolectrics - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The Resolectrics
The Resolectrics at heart are a classic rhythm and blues band. But like the pioneers of rock & roll in the 50's, 60's and 70's, The Resolectrics draw inspiration from many sources in the roots of American music to create an original and soulful blend of rock, r&b, and folk. Their ragged-yet-heartfelt harmonies, bluesy riffs, and swampy grooves are sure to move you. The Resolectrics' electrifying live performances showcase the group's dedication to drummer, John Becher's motto: "Feel is King."
Kendall Core - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Kendall Core
The gothic, Folk-Rock sounds of Kendall Core and her band are quickly becoming a compelling presence in Portland, Oregon. Her debut album ‘Crazy Dog’ is inspired by the process of grief and healing.

The vulnerability of Core's lyrics are carried by a soulful warm tone, occasionally operatic, echoing with a haunted yearning (not without moments of diminished brightness.) Her voice cuts through, raw and pure, a perfect vehicle for slow and hard stories about the darker side of life. The lyrics are born of troublesome questions and truths leaving just a few windows where light breaks in. There is a guarded hope in her reflection along with time-worn wisdom, captivating when discovered in someone so young.

The overall sonic impression of the group offers a timeless and nostalgic feeling one might expect from traditional Americana roots. However, the players incorporate a heavier texture that betrays them as contemporary. 'Crazy Dog' may be the most appropriate soundtrack for a pensive and longing shift, alone on a barstool, that ends in knowing not all has fallen apart. These songs reflect the poetry and passion of visionaries like Patti Smith, Neil Young, Neko Case and Jeff Buckley.

Crazy Dog was produced, engineered, and mixed by Justin Phelps at Hallowed Halls in Portland, Oregon. Kendall Core co-produced the album. It was mastered by John Baldwin. The record features Taylor Kingman (Guitar, Bass), Alexis Mahler (Cello), Buddy Weeks (Drums), and David Lipkind (Harmonica).
Anna Hoone - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Anna Hoone
"Portland's Anna Hoone delivers the kind of straightforward folk that comes bristling with poetic barbs...Hoone's voice is a vessel of poise and of prose-heavy lyricism that recalls the melodic grit of songsmiths like Lucinda Williams. [Her songwriting] is replete with the kind of imagery Americana purists crave and fans of country/western revere as foundational tenets. - Ryan J. Prado, Willamette Week

Rooted in old-time gospel, country, and folk traditions, Anna Hoone's classic Americana is influenced by the staggering beauty of the landscape around her and a certain ever-present longing for home and companionship.

Her stark, straightforward lyrics reflect universal truths about the hardships and trials we all face. Hoone's voice is soft, lilting, and precise, with an edge that comes from having lived the words she sings.

Anna grew up in rural southern Oregon, and has called Kentucky and Montana home at one point or another. She has studied music in Senegal and Austria, and has discovered that no matter where you go, the truth of the song is what matters most.

Anna lives in a tiny trailer in SE Portland where most of these songs are crafted.
