“When you know the one you’re with is bad for you but you’re too scared to quit.
You say: ‘I love you, I don’t want to lose you…’
And they wear their crown of shit, upon their liar’s chair, while leeching off your devotion.”
(Austra, 2020)

Katie Austra Stelmanis has been better known by her middle name for four albums, ten years, and countless tours. The vivid music of Austra is born of the creative force that is the producer, songwriter and recording engineer Katie Stelmanis and the most powerful instrument at her disposal – her voice, one that is capable of effortlessly evoking moments of personal and universal drama. Augmented and assisted in live performance by a rotating cast of musicians, Austra’s recordings are essays in texture, atmosphere and emotion that increasingly examine the contemporary sensation of being haunted by the future.

HiRUDiN is Austra’s fourth album, and saw her taking an entirely different, free-spirited approach to making a record. Accumulating a vast and vibrant mass of source material through improv sessions with a wide array of Canadian artists, Austra took a collage approach to sampling, arranging, writing and producing to reveal the songs that would form the album.

    I’ve been listening to Austra for over 11 years and love reading about the singers process of writing and producing. She is a true genius. It goes without saying, I’d love to win tix to this!

    I’ve never saw her. Would like too.

    I feel like I’m back in the 80s when I listen to her synthesizer music

    I would love to see Austra! Hopefully she’ll play ‘How did you know?’

    Austra at The Aladdin sounds like a great first-concert-in-two-years experience. Pick me!

    April 1 is April Fools Day so I’d love to tell my husband guess what we are going to a Free concert that’s paid for. He will say this is a April fool’s joke and I will say no it isn’t get dressed we are going. Smile.

    I don’t see how this would NOT be a great show. I love their sound and style.

    It feels like it’s been a million years, but I’m pretty sure Austra was one of the last shows I saw before the pandemic, so… full circle?

    I would love to go to the Aladdin and see the sweet enchanting vocals of Austra. So happy she is coming to Portland! Any chance to go to the Aladdin I am in!
