Astro Tan, Slow Corpse, Mood Beach
Sun, Sep 17 at 9pm
Originally formed as a prison/prom band at Charles Bukowski High School, Astro Tan spent years playing soul clubs on the ghost town circuit. They've also worked as the house act in the lounge of a derelict Japanese cruise ship, playing for forgotten Hollywood stars under a slowly turning disco ball since the late 70's. Moreover, Astro Tan is a three-piece Psychedelic R&B band from Portland, Oregon.
Canary is Astro Tan's third release, and while the musicianship and soulful tone of their introspection remain, Canary features their most fulsome and ambitious arrangements to date, incorporating soaring horns and strings into their neo-soul rock 'n roll revolution. (2017)
Slow Corpse is the brain child of singer/producer Mitchell Winters and Brenton Clarke. Born out of the misty forests in Southern Oregon in the fall of 2015, Slow Corpse has quickly risen into prominence in the Oregon indie rock scene. Following the release of their debut EP's, Hound and Moons, Slow Corpse have taken to the road, playing shows up and down the North West region of the US which they pay tribute to in their layered dark, folk sound.
Mood Beach is an anachronistic representation of an 80’s neon filled pop-culture music vortex from a time long gone. Join Tony Pullig-Gomez, Zachery Ober, and Aaron Schmidt, as they lead you on an aural expedition to more placid sunset saturated waters.* What’s that on the horizon, under a peach setting sun? Welcome to Mood Beach.
