Joel Gion
After spending a long and strange career as the legendary “Tamborine Man” for the Brian Jonestown Massacre, tambourinist/percussionist Joel Gion has emerged with an armload of his own music done entirely his own way.

“With all the BJM members now living so spread out across the world, I found myself increasingly missing the album making process. This feeling of disconnect is what kick started me into exploring my own song writing process and turned out to be a hugely important piece of self discovery. No more time for my beloved laziness. So I made my own music with a with bunch of friends in the studio coming and going and having a great time creating. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by this album. ”

The fruit of Gion’s sonic explorations, “Apple Bonkers” (a co-release with The Reverberation Appreciation Society and The Committee to Keep Music Evil), showcases Joel’s talent as a songwriter, singer, and guitarist.

    “But of you dig on vegan food
    Well come over to my work
    I’ll have them cook you
    Something that you’ll really love.
    ‘Cause I like you,
    Yeah I like you.”
    Their lyrics speak to PDX…haha. I hope Courtney wears tight white leather!

    Because I am the oldest greatest Dandy Warhols fan, a veteran of the psychedelic 60’s, who, when hearing the Dandy Warhols for the first time, realized there was still hope for rock music, the planet, and the soul. And because I strung together the longest sentence. And because I want to buy the VIP tix since circumstances did not allow @GAMH show. And because I ain’t too proud to beg. And I hsve never been to Portland. Peace.

  17. lori December 3, 2015 at 4:44 pm #

    I would love to win tickets!

  18. Jenny December 3, 2015 at 5:06 pm #

  19. Monica December 3, 2015 at 6:46 pm #

    I’m a Dandy fan from way back! Though now I can’t afford the tix! Wah! What a world. I’d love to go.

  20. Arial December 3, 2015 at 9:33 pm #

    Ok, so if I don’t win I’m probably going to go anyway because never in a million years would I have imagined I’d be able to see the Dandy’s in their home town (me being from Australia and all)!!

    Last time I saw them was at a festival back home in 2004 (headlining with Metallica and the Strokes). Best memory ever dancing around to them in the rain with my bestfriend.

    Been in Portland and Seaside for 3 months now and whenever I meet new people I ask them if they know who the Dandy’s are, you know what their answer is? No……. Yes. Crazy, I know!!!!

  21. Dave G. December 3, 2015 at 9:52 pm #

    Dandy indeed!

  22. Jen Phillips December 3, 2015 at 10:48 pm #

  37. Solar December 10, 2015 at 3:03 pm #

    I’m a super old school Dandy’s fan and I haven’t seem them in literally 10 years since I’ve been in school for 8 (graduating in my 40s!). I am free to reconnect with my life and my soul but oh so very broke to do these things. Broke, never broken. Let me surprise my sweet beau who has been a trooper supporting me. Damn, they’re so so good.

  38. Mikey B December 10, 2015 at 3:25 pm #
