Halloween is so CLOSE and Berbati's is coming through with three events this weekend: Fall Into Darkness Festival.
From Press Release:
Fall Into Darkness 2009 is the latest and greatest in a series of multi-day music festival events curated by Nanotear Booking and hosted at Portland, Oregon's finest mid-size club Berbati's Pan.
This latest edition features headlining performances from Seattle drone-masters EARTH, dark metal enigmas AGALLOCH, and the recently reunited modern doom legends YOB.
All forms of darkness are on hand from the US black metal of extraordinary bay area band Ludicra, to the all female chamber music of Amber Asylum. ?Alos is the indescribable solo project of Italian performance artist Stefania Pedretti. Acid Mother's Temple main-man Makoto Kawabata makes a solo virtuoso guitar performance, and performance ritualists Fauna make a rare and mysterious appearance. Soriah is a world-acclaimed Tuvan-style throat singer, and Witch Mountain has been the doom-rock vehicle for Nanotear's own Nathan Carson for twelve years running. Psychedelic instrumental overlords SubArachnoid Space return from a successful US tour, and new blood trickles in from Atriarch, featuring members of Graves at Sea, Trees, and Antioch Arrow.
If you like it dark and heavy, artistic, powerful, and uncompromising, this is the festival for you.
