The Reverberations - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Reverberations
Dave Berkham (formally from The CRY) always loved Garage and Beat music from the 60's. After departing the band earlier in 2014, he made it his mission to form a new group. Meeting John (Sundaze, White Swans) and Ian (Go Fever, Errata Note) while playing in a favorite local 60's cover band, The Hauer Things, was the catalyst to continue and write original material. Cameron, a former bandmate from the Midnight Callers, joined as the bass guitarist, and The Reverberations were born.

2014, The Reverberations have released albums that had one Beatle boot in the garage and
the other in the psychedelic ‘60s. But now it’s 2019 and it’s time for
“Changes” - the new LP released on Beluga Records – a kaleidoscopic trip which
flies away from the garage on a psychonautic journey.

calls for expansion and exploration of mind, music and technique. The
Reverberations dig deep into the influence of psychedelics and recording
craftsmanship. Recorded in Joshua Tree, California with engineer and producer
Pat Kearns, the band made it their mission to create a truly tripped-out album.
The 13 tracks on Changes chart new territory for The Reverberations with
technicolor highs and mellow lows.

Four singles
capture the overall mood of the album. “So Strange” is a
pulsating groover that swirls like a liquid light show propelled by an
undeniable bass line and vocal harmonies. “Dream Catcher” follows up with a
jangly guitar intro morphing into a hazy sway of harmony and paisley
underground vibes. The third single, “Changes”, simmers with reflection, capturing the highs
and lows of a world steeped in changes. Written by band leader Dave Berkham, it
is an homage to Portland, Oregon’s mutated landscape and honors local music
heroes lost in 2017. “Time Stops” rockets the listener back into the
stratosphere on a wild 12 string high, complemented with swirling organ and
pounding rhythm section.
Charts - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
"Charts has been one of Portland’s more underrated
bands, playing tight, garage-pop flecked with surfy guitar, ‘50s rock elements and pronounced melodic smarts without coming across like mere retro pastiche.”
(MS), Willamette Week

"Charts are Portland's Traditionalists, proudly carrying the torch of Classic Pop Songcraft. We are talking about three-chord wonders that are stuck in your head before the first verse is even over. And then there's the chorus. The Charts are also a mess, but a good mess (most of the time), and it would be hard to imagine them any other way."
Raf Spielman, The Woolen Men
True Primitives - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
True Primitives
True Primitives debut album, Revolutions, has been hailed as sexy groovy gaze with heavy, pulsating bass lines, shimmering guitar, skyscraper riffs, dramatic breaks, psychedelic guitar solos and textured electronic sounds.

Clint Sargent, founding member and lead guitarist of The High Violets, wrote songs for the album over a 2-year period with the idea of forming a new group. The new band’s name was inspired by Stendal’s “The Charter House of Parma” protagonist Fabrice del Dongo, who was recognized as a “true primitive.”

Sargent delivers guitars, keys, percussion, pedals and vocals on the album with Collin Hegna (Federale, The Brian Jonestown Massacre) providing bass, keys, and percussion. Luke Strahota (The High Violets, Satin Chaps) weighs in on drums and band member John Mason IV (Verner Pantons) is on guitar. Kaitlyn ni Donovan, performs backup vocals on Real Love; violin and viola on Up in the Sky.
