Night 2 of Not Without A Fight II

Round 2 of Not Without A Fight II is here, our gathering to go against all of the political b.s. as of late. Even today's events act as proof that we need a bit more common decency in the world for sure, but definitely on a much more local level here.

That's why tonight's bill of this show boasts an entertaining bunch of garage rock punk from Bobby Peru, post-punk from famed Vice Device, queer feminist punk leaders Cockeye and Escort from Washington. We wish there were more days of this installment but it's easy to see that there will be much more to come.

Not Without A Fight II starts in just a couple of hours, so be sure to head to The Know.





Visual Vices: Souvenir Driver - "Sunsets"

It's pretty decent outside right now, but the feelings Souvenir Driver's latest video for "Sunsets" gives are much more lovely.

A dazed visual entry of a tour diary recounting a day gone awry, "Sunsets" follows the band on an adventurous journey following the breakdown of their video vehicle. The band then have some unexpected encounters at a small town dive bar, where the band actually used real locals and regulars from the location. It's a story of compassion among strangers and offers a bit more beauty we could all definitely use right about now.

See Souvenir Driver perform "Sunsets" and the rest of the songs from their recent, self-titled release tonight at the Fixin' To with Leading Psychics and the Verner Pantons.





Human Ottoman is taking over

Human Ottoman is quite the trio.

Utilizing a couple instruments not usually employed by the typical makeup of a band, the amalgamation of Human Ottoman's vibraphone-cello-drum production caught our eye back in February of last year when we premiered their video for "YDKWH." Their vibrance even captured the attention of the bookers over at Treefort Music Fest, of which they played earlier this year and all of you voted as one of the best Portland acts there. 

As for what they've got going on currently, Human Ottoman were on the bands selected to be featured at tonight's Northwest Post-Rock Collective showcase. See their greatness, along with Volcanic Pinnacles, Long Hallways, A Collective Subconscious and Seattle's You May Die In The Desert, later today at the Tonic Lounge.





Headsplit Records serves up fresh death metal with Extraneous

Portland is getting a new death metal band and tonight, they'll be celebrated with a well-backed release show.

Coming out on Portland's extreme underground metal label Headsplit Records, Extraneous are dropping their demo cassette tonight. What started as some shreddy rough cuts from guitarist/vocalist Alex Stanley in late summer of last year has flourished into a fully formed lineup, their expertise quickly noticed. A short shuffle through Stanley's YouTube profile, where Extraneous' few tracks live for now, but provide enough insight into the band's capacity for gruesome sounds.

Pick up a copy of Extraneous' demo tonight at the High Water Mark, where there's also the chance to catch fellow Headsplit act Blood Freak and other new death metal act Septic Tank. This bill is guaranteed to split some heads... or at least, some ears.
