OK Go Photos + The Sounds Announce Portland Show

I skipped the (reportedly incredible) Lady Lamb The Beekeeper / Sister Suvi show at SPACE on Friday to check out America’s favorite treadmill enthusiasts, OK Go, at the Port City Music Hall. It was one of the smaller venues I’ve seen them in (well, aside from that backyard in Austin 3 years ago, but that doesn’t count) but that didn’t make them tone down the huge rock show antics. Mic-mounted cameras, confetti guns, and gigantic chimes (plus one song played entirely on hand bells) made for a pretty interesting rock show to be crammed onto a Portland-sized stage. Check out my photos of OK Go and openers Longwave here.

Now this is exactly what I like to see – Sweden’s The Sounds have just announced a show at the Port City Music Hall. Get tickets soon, I have a feeling that will be a good one.

Also, I’ve relaunched my personal/music blog, Subinev. I’ll be posting non-Portland bits there, starting this week with South By Southwest!
