NW POST-ROCK SHOWCASE
Building a community around post-rock music
7pm | $7.00 advance $7.00 day of show
Just over a year ago, Portland band Long Hallways set out to build a community around Post-Rock music. They found immediate connection with like-minded bands Coastlands and A Collective Subconscious . Together, the three bands formed the beginnings of the NW Post-Rock Collective.
The NWPRC's network now includes bands, bookers, and listeners in Seattle, Tacoma, Salem, Eugene, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The NWPRC has also been in contact with the Southwest Post-Rock Collective and has partnered on a compilation album with bands in Santiago, Chile.
This network of bands presents diverse and complex facets of instrumental music. Their unique soundscapes, accompanied by visual imagery, evoke a depth of provocative emotions that draw listeners in.
The NW Post-Rock Collective provides insight into a next generation of post-rock and and innovative adaptation to the music industry.

9pm | $10.00 advance $12.00 day of show
We return after a nomadic year that has taken us all over the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Colombia and some of favorite festivals such as Burning Man and Glastonbury. It's been a magical ride with aerialist performers above us in the dust in Nevada, drag Stevies in Chicago, so many hugs to Landslide, many new friends and a phone interview with Mick Fleetwood himself for Time Out London.
With more remixes, chiffon, lace, waistcoats and tambourines, we will be hitting the roads of the US. We can't wait to see you all again, but for those of you that haven't been to one of our parties before, let us read your future:
We see you swathed in a shawl (or is it a waistcoat). You have surrendered your soul to remixes and originals for 4 hours. Your eyes are closed, arms stretched above you. The music is loud and evokes deep memories and emotions. Your parents, your break-ups, your friends, good times and tough times. You find refuge in this music with like-minded people. You dance...for hours as you are taken by the wind in a room with lace and paper flowers.
Our party is a chance to listen to the wind blow from blues to rock to stadium pop to remix in a nightclub context. You need to hear this music LOUD. You need to move and lose yourself in the dark. You are in safe hands. We've been putting on these parties since 2012, when we launched Pyschemagik's edit of Dreams in a sweaty East London basement. Since then we've taken our lovingly curated collection to underground clubs all over the world.
This is not a tribute act. There are no cover versions. We do not simply play a greatest hits CD - if you just want that then maybe stay in. We like to dig a little deeper into their back catalogue and we play remixes that we think expand your Fleetwood Mac journey. It's like a festival with the best people, because Fleetwood Mac fans are the best people. Fact. We've witnessed this every party we do - you guys are special. You're emotionally charged with your candles burning bright. Don't be surprised if you find yourself hugging a stranger at the end of the night to Landslide. And technically they won't be a stranger because, they have good taste like yourself.
A few house rules:
If you're not sure you like Fleetwood Mac, please don't come. No really, don't come. And don't drag along your friend who doesn't really like them either. We'll be overdosing on a feast of edits and originals (no cover versions permitted). This is an unadulterated, tunnel-visioned event, paying homage to the incredible musical journey that is Fleetwood Mac.
This is ALL-NIGHT-LONG BIG LOVE.
A little taste of what our parties are like:
8:30pm | $10.00 day of show
Touch (est. 1982) is one of the last surviving labels from the turbulent new wave period in London, which uniquely fused art, design and music. Hear artists from the label roster present and demonstrate their work to a discerning audience. Audio-visual.
Philip Jeck uses turntables and sampler to create a unique sonic improvisation, both emotionally captivating and technically involving. Audio only.
Mark Van Hoen, with modular synth and software pushed the analogue/digital envelope to create damaged melodies, drones and dense claustrophobia. Audio-visual.
Simon Scott - His work explores the creative process of actively listening, the implications of recording the natural world using technology and the manipulation of natural sounds used for musical composition. Audio-visual.
Daniel Menche - In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. Aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listener's imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music. Audio-visual.
