Beyond 94.7’s “December to Remember” there are a plethora of good tunes to take in in PDX this month. So here it is, your somewhat comprehensive, Zibby approved December show guide. Enjoy!
I will admit, my summer music preferences (so far) have been influenced much by the Sub Pop Sampler I got on Record Store Day. It is a good thing, honestly–I’d been in a bit of a rut. I really appreciated the song “People in Her Mind” by Poor Moon off of their EP Illusion and I’ve been listening to it quite a bit.
Poor Moon is made up of some members of Fleet Foxes and other scruffy dudes, and though their music mimics Fleet Foxes in many ways, it is distinctly different. It’s like FF chilled out, way less Renaissance-y, and a bit more monotone.
The group has been together for a handful of years, creating music in between touring and recording with their respective bands, and have finally gotten their selves together to record and tour as Poor Moon. They’ll be at the Doug Fir this coming Wednesday, May 30 after wrapping stuff up at Sasquatch, and will continue down the West Coast. I’ll be there, anxiously waiting to hear more than the five songs they’ve released.
