From Someday Lounge:

Tonight (July 24) : Floating Action; Generationals: Wishyunu


This off-kilter approach manages to align seemingly disparate elements of bossanova, dub, folk, blues, garage-rock, soul, gospel, and country into one cohesive, cross-cultural soiree.
More Info:
The Generationals, paying enough attention to all the fundamentals of exactly what makes pop music so irresistible, have nothing but these elements to offer. Combining two and a half minutes worth of hand claps, “oooh aahh oohh's,” horns, organs, and a soulful, yet snotty adolescent-sounding singer, Generationals have not only ripped a page from the

Saturday, July 25 : Tony Ozier; Othello; Soul P

*Tony Ozier*
A fervent believer in the power of live music, Ozier, lead vocalist
and keyboardist, has received much acclaim with his 10-piece band killing it everywhere west of the Mississippi. He won a Los Angeles Music Award for his live performance and commands any audience with his magnetic stage presence.

Naturally, the first thing to come to mind is the Shakespeare masterpiece, encapsulating the tragic themes of love, racism, and betrayal. It's a moniker with heavy associations. This northwest hip-hop MC may identify with a play so bleak, but his lyrics don't show it.

*Soul P*
If hip-hops fans expect anything out of their artists, it's authenticity and Soul P has it in spades.

Friday July 24th @ Holocene
Horse Meat Disco (London, UK) link
Linger & Quiet link

Since its humble beginnings 6 years ago, Horse Meat Disco has become an institution for gay Londoners looking to lose their minds every Sunday night at the infamous Eagle club. Their disco-centric parties harp back to the halcyon days of The Loft and The Gallery in New York attracting a discerning mix of old time disco heads, club kids, bears, naturists and something new in gay clubs; a space where disco fans of a heterosexual persuasion could live out their fantasy of going to a gay disco club without feeling totally out of place.

Monday, July 27th @ Holocene
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Sean Bones
Pancake Breakfast

Sprawling, celebratory psych-rock from your new favorite cult leader and his ten best friends.

Birthed by Mouth in the year two-thousand and five, young Edward Sharpe had to wait nearly two years before he was to grow his arms and legs and fingers and toes. Immaculately conceived, his father (a Robot who had magically become a real boy…but that's another story) declared his undying devotion to the creature.


Tuesday, July 28th @ Holocene
White Fang

Genre-deflecting spasmodic garage rock.

Japandroids (JPNDRDS) is a two piece band from Vancouver, BC. This 'band' started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intending to be a trio, the boys decided to forgo the logistical nightmare of having a 'lead singer' and do it themselves.

    Damian and NAS together on one stage!?!?!?!?!

    This is the performance of a lifetime! I grew up in a stream of dancehall reggae and roots hip hop. These two artists are our modern day leaders for the heavy political message and fresh rhymes and beats…. I would swim up the Willamette from Milwaukie to get to this show! The one of the summer I CANT miss!!

    I’d love to bring the lady!!! I link all the peeps to your steez…. Set it up Pipeline!!
