​​!mindparade’s interest in dissolving the traditional boundaries between pop, experimentalism, and composition produces a kaleidoscopic output inclusive of many influences. At their home studio, songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Alex Arnold collaborates with friends to flesh out the project’s recordings and live iterations, resulting in albums and shows that balance varied stylistic tendencies – orchestrated rock, synthpop, experimental noise, jazz and classical inspired harmonic progressions, and ambient group improvisation.

The Fourth Wall was formed in 2011 on the island of Oahu. After releasing their first record (Motion & Rest), they quickly gained local notoriety, opening for visiting national acts like Andrew Bird, The Shins, and Menomena. In 2012, The band relocated to Portland, Oregon. Since their move, they’ve released two highly acclaimed records through Portland label, Bug Hunt. The Portland Mercury called their 2015 album (Lovely Violence) “something of a wonder: an engrossing, fully realized and vitalized record with no easy musical touchstone.”  The band went on a few tours following the release of Lovely Violenceand landed an opening spot with Band of Horses. They are currently recording their fourth album. 

Vaccine Policy

In our continued efforts to keep our community safe, and in response to the omicron variant, we have updated our COVID policy. Beginning January 6, 2022, Holocene will require customers to show proof they have received their COVID19 vaccination booster shot, if they are eligible to receive one. 

If they are eligible for the booster, but have not yet received theirs, they can instead provide a professionally-administered negative COVID test for entry, taken within 24 hours of show door time. 

If they are vaccinated but ineligible for their booster, (2nd shot of Moderna or Pfizer received less than 6 months ago, or Johnson & Johnson less than 2 months ago) then proof of that vaccination will suffice at the door.

For those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, we can allow a professionally administered negative COVID test, taken within 24 hours of show door time. However, this requires advance permission from venue staff – please contact hc@holocene.org if this applies to you.

We continue to require masks at all times indoors when not actively drinking or eating, in accordance with the state of Oregon mandate.

If you have any issues with this policy, you can request a refund up to 14 days prior to the event by reaching out to hc@holocene.org
