What a fantastic show at The Rhythm Room on Thursday. If you missed it you definitely missed out. Portland's Mimicking Birds were amazing. Some people in attendance were a little too chatty for such a mellow band but that's what happens when the bar is 14.2 feet from the stage right?
Bears of Manitou are getting better and better and better every time they play. Just like shining a diamond ;-) I fully expect them to be huge very very soon.
The surprise of the night for me was St Ranger. Don't quote me on this but I heard it was only their second show ever. On one hand I am not surprised because they are so very young but on the other I was amazed because they are so fucking good. It's not often that a band that relies heavily on 2-3-4-5 part harmonies sound good let alone pull it off like seasoned professionals but they did. You can download their first two recorded songs on their Band Camp page HERE. and you should ASAP.
