ANOTHER FINE IMPERMANENT EVENT IS SOON TO BE IN THE OFFING, MY FRIENDS, AND ALL THE WINNINGS FROM THIS ONE ARE BEING REDIRECTED TO OUR GOOD PALS AT FREEFORM PORTLAND! HERE ARE THE DOINGS TRANSPIRING:

NATE WEY IS AN ESTABLISHED PORTLAND FIXTURE WITH HIS WELL-LOVED, LONG-RUNNING DREAMPOP UNIT SOUVENIR DRIVER, BUT ON THIS NIGHT, THE HONORABLE MR. WEY WILL FLY SOLO. THERE HAVE BEEN CONFLICTING REPORTS ABOUT WHAT THIS MIGHT MEAN, BUT THAT ONLY MAKES IT MORE EXCITING!

SKIN LIES IS IMPERMANENT'S "FLAGSHIP ACT" (WHAT CAN WE SAY? EASIEST TO NEGOTIATE WITH YOURSELF, AMIRITE?), RETURNING AFTER A THIRD OF THE YEAR SPENT WOODSHEDDING, PREPARED TO MORE FULLY BLUR THE LINES BETWEEN DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES, DARK AND LIGHT, FRIPP AND ENO. THERE MAY BE GUESTS (BUT PROBABLY NOT), THERE WILL BE FLUORESCENT PAINT.

SMILING STRANGE WILL BE MAKING THEIR LIVE DEBUT TONIGHT, FROM WHAT WE HEAR. THIS IS KYLE AND ANNIE'S "SLOW AND LOW CORE" INSTRO DUO, AND WE'RE PLEASED AS PUNCH TO SHINE A LIGHT IN THEIR DIRECTION. THE RECORDINGS SUGGEST GENTEEL ZONES WHICH ARE NONETHELESS UNAFRAID OF A LITTLE HUZZ, AND WHO DOESN'T THINK THAT THAT SOUNDS MIGHT FINE?

FEATURING: THE SOCIAL STOMACH | GROWTH SPERT (MN) | XAPCHYK | WINNIE BLACK

HERE WE GO AGAIN! THIS PROMISES TO BE A BLOCKBUSTER INSTALLMENT OF OUR SERIES, AND HERE'S WHY: THE SOCIAL STOMACH, BY OUR ESTIMATION, IS WHAT SONG-BASED/"ROCK" MUSIC SHOULD SOUND LIKE IN 2018. NO BLUES SCALES, NO WORN-OUT "POST-PUNK" TROPES, NO FAKEY BOOMER WORSHIP WHATSOEVER. JUST MANIC DRUMS, WACKED-OUT SAMPLES, AND RAZOR-SHARP, FURIOUS DECLAMATIONS. IF YOU DON'T KNOW THAT THIS DUO ARE HIGH ON THE LIST OF RIPPERS-TO-WATCH IN 2018, NOW'S A GOOD TIME TO FIND OUT.

GROWTH SPERT WAS AN IMPERMANENT FAVORITE BEFORE THERE WAS AN IMPERMANENT. THE ONLY THING PREDICTABLE ABOUT JON MIDDLETON'S LONG-RUNNING SOLO JOINT (CURRENTLY BASED IN MINNEAPOLIS, STARTED IN ARKANSAS, WITH MANY POINTS IN BETWEEN) IS THAT IT'LL SOUND LIKE NOTHING ELSE. INTENSE, SINGULAR HOLLER AND STOMP, AND IT'S BEEN YEARS SINCE HE LAST TOOK OUR CITY BY STORM. NOT TO BE MISSED.

XAPCHYK, WE HAVEN'T SEEN YET, BUT DAMN, THEIR PEDIGREE HAS US SWEATIN': DAVID MORGAN (EX-SMEGMA), KYLE STANT AND JERRY SOGA (EX-FIASCO). ALL PORTLAND FREE(AK) IMPROV LIFERS, GUARANTEED TO DELIVER OR YOUR THIRD EYE DRILLIN' IS FREE.

WINNIE BLACK IS ANOTHER WE HAVEN'T HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO WITNESS IN PERSON, BUT HER LOCAL UNDERGROUND REP PRECEDES HER, AND WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS. HEAVY, HUZZY ELECTRONICS, DAMAGED BEATS, AND A/V MELT ARE EXPECTED ON THE MENU.
