Dolphin Midwives

somesurprises, Abronia

Ages 21+
Don't miss experimental harpist Dolphin Midwives, joined by Seattle's somesurprises and Portland's own exploratory psych outfit Abronia!

Dolphin Midwives: "Sage Fisher weaves together ethereal harp, reverb-drenched vocal manipulations and fractured electronic noise. Breaking the stereotype of pretty, classical songs plucked in concert halls, Fisher unleashes her darkly ambient creations in intimate lounges and indie clubs." - Willamette Week, Best New Bands of 2019

Abronia: "Anyone who’s caught Portland six-piece Abronia in a live setting can attest to the mysticism prevalent in the band’s tribal oeuvre....the group harnesses ethereal psych flourishes and fluid atmospherics into their musical sensibilities, offering a potent aural wormhole that often leads to trippy results." –VORTEX MAGAZINE

Somesurprises: Seattle's somesurprises shifts from bedroom tapes to the recording studio with a 21-minute, 3-track EP. Their first release since the widely-loved "serious dreams" on Eiderdown Records, "Alt" features a variety of new sounds not previously heard on the band's recordings. Title track "Alt" is a straight-up motorik krautrock blazer, managing to slowly build momentum and spirit with each passing minute. EP opener "Low On Sleep" is an entirely new arrangement and recording; the updated version begins as wide-angle krautpop that morphs into a high-dream psychedelic guitar jam; confidently stomping along. Instrumental "Paolo and Francesca" blends tropical organs into 90s alternative stoner rock, easily demonstrating that somesurprises have much more in store than any of us would have previously guessed.
