(Show Preview) NW Post-Rock Collective Presents…the 2nd Annual NW Post-Rock Showcase @ Holocene 4/28/2015
I am very pleased to announce that Holocene will be hosting the 2nd Annual NW Post-Rock Collective showcase tonight at 7pm. This year’s installment is a special one, as it commemorates a year of tremendous growth for the originally Portland-based network of bands, bookers, and enthusiasts all up the length of the West coast. Portland’s Long Hallways (the backbone of the community and curators of the event), Coastlands, A Collective Subconscious, and Another Neighbor Disappeared will be joined by Tacoma’s Compass & Knife.
The name of the game this year is going to be Heavy– what stylistically unites this five-band powerhouse is the emotional immensity of their guitar-driven soundscapes, whether they be closer to the realm of emotive ambient music in the vein of Eluvium and Helios, like Coastlands, or closer to that of harder-rocking sounds in post-metal, the math-ier stuff and elsewhere, as is the case with A Collective Subconcious and Another Neighbor Disppeared.
In any case, I hope I will be seeing you there tonight, especially since I had to miss last year’s showcase at the last minute. $7 will get you through the door, and, more importantly, support the touring band.
Come out to show your support for a rapidly evolving and dynamic community, and to lose yourself in some truly vast aural zones!
