Post Up with 1939 Ensemble's Post Jazz Rock

The first few days of 2017 have already been, for the most part, much better than 2016 in its entirety. Now that the holiday slump of shows is seemingly over, let's attempt not to fall into the valley of warmth our beds provide as an incredibly cold weekend draws near. We can say that we've got a bit of inspiration for this with tomorrow's show, featuring the attention grabbing 1939 Ensemble.

Drum connoisseur Jose Medeles fronts the group and if you know anything of his history (like owning Revival Drum Shop or, I don't know, drumming for the Breeders) the particular output of the group should be obvious. Featuring a variety of instruments including vibraphone, trumpet, Moog and general noise among the drums, 1939 Ensemble's instrumental post rock, post jazz fusion is enthralling and captivating, making for a very stimulating production.

Again, you can see 1939 Ensemble tomorrow with Ethiopian soul seven piece Tezeta Band and KMHD jazz DJ Derek Smith at Mississippi Studios.

Visual Vices: The Last Artful, Dodgr & Neill Von Tally - "Caverns"

With one of the most recognizable voices in the game right now, The Last Artful, Dodgr certainly knows how to turn something good into something incredibly great. Teaming up with producer Neill Von Tally has proved an even greater endeavor, as Von Tally's beats make for the best presentation of Dodgr's matchless take on R&B and hip hop.

Having already released their debut as a duo, the Fractures EP, last year and a collab EP with Myke Bogan earlier this year, the pair have shared with us the second single to come off their first full-length Bone Music.

"Caverns" as a video is just like it is as a track - incredibly smooth in its minimal execution in a way that allows Dodgr's flow to really shine. Watch the glitchy video for "Caverns" below and be on the lookout for Bone Music, due out early 2017.

A Farewell Show for Eclisse

It appears that 2016 isn't the only thing we'll be saying goodbye to. Just a few days into the new year, a celebration and a sayonara for Febian Perez is coming to the Doug Fir. Known more in the music world as Eclisse (formerly Bike Thief), Perez records his blend of post rock, stoner rock and psych solo but when joined by his rotation of talented musician friends, the production makes for a beautiful live set.

Being able to catch Eclisse live, especially when joined with Coastlands and Rader, is enough of a celebration in itself. This particular show also happens to be one celebrating Perez's birthday but nfortunately, the show isn't only a chance to say happy birthday. It's also a chance to say happy travels, because it'll be the last time Eclisse will be playing locally before Perez makes his big move to New York City.

A stunning and heavy way to say goodbye, join Rader and Coastlands in sending Eclisse off right.  

Mood Music: Ice Queens - "The Lights Get Dim"

It's the eve of a new year and here we find ourselves, yet again. Endlessly scrolling through our Facebook events feed wondering what to get into tonight is only so fruitful an effort when there are almost too many things to do on one of the most banging nights of the year. Luckily, we've got some Ice Queens queued up to get us through the afternoon.

For those that haven't gotten a chance to see the amazingness that is Ice Queens live, they'll be playing the Bunk Bar New Year's Eve Spectacular tonight along with Bitch'n and Witch Mountain

Until then, enjoy this somewhat Sunny Day Real Estate sounding delight from Ice Queens. It'll definitely get you in the mood for tonight.

Rock Out the New Year for Ghost Ship at Dante's

Just because we're moving up in year digits doesn't mean we're moving past the things that have transpired this year. Amid the abundant parties consider stopping by Dante's, where all sorts of rock will be rolling for a good cause. 

Rock for Ghost Ship: A Musical Memorial Benefit is the way to go for partaking in turning the calendar page and showing support for those who need it. Dante's is covering the production costs for the show, where guitar gods of hair metal revival BREAKER BREAKER will be headlining a string of sets from Melt, LKN, Lord Becky and the English Language, meaning that 100% of what's made at the door goes to the families of those lost in the Oakland Ghost Ship warehouse fire some weeks ago.

The Dante's New Years Eve is one of the best ways to bang out three things Portlanders love to do best: 1. Drink away crappy year, 2. See a bomb show 3. Do things for a great cause. For a $10 suggested donation, that's really not that bad at all.
