Yak Attack will make you dance. Founded in Portland, OR in 2013, the live electronica trio has been making waves in the local scene and expanding its fan base regionally in its short history. Rowan Cobb (bass), Dave Dernovsek (keys) and Devin Weston (drums) combine skilled playing with live looping and effects, resulting in expansive sonic terrain and heightened peaks well beyond the capabilities of most live trios. Elements from genres including house, breakbeat, downtempo, jazz, and funk, tight compositions mixed with improvisation and jamming, and frequent contributions from guest musicians define a typical Yak show.
Flying Spiders live at the intersection of galaxies: hip hop lyrics about the transformation of fear and a thirst for social change, merging with the layers and textures of live instrumentalists from different musical and metaphysical practices.
Flying Spiders debuted on 10/10/10 and operates with a core group of emcees/vocalists and instrumentalists, with a revolving door of special guests. The collective brings electrifying plate tectonics of genres, such as jazz from saxophone and trumpet, the rock sound of drums and electric guitar, the classical of acoustic piano, folk and orchestral ambience of violin, and the wide range of vocal textures from beatboxing to singing to rap.
