We were already well-aware of the power of Jacob Augustine‘s songwriting and voice, as you can see here, but what does it take to properly celebrate the unveiling of three albums at once? Apparently, an epic show full of talented guest musicians and a whole lot of support. That’s just what Jacob got this past Friday at Port City Music Hall. As our friend Dylan V. made abundantly clear, there were a whole lot of positive vibes going around with the exemplary display of the powers of Portland’s supportive local music scene. Billy Libby (who we just caught at the Portland CMJ showcase) and This Way opened for Jacob Augustine, as he was joined by a backing band including members of Dominic and the Lucid (note: they’ve gone back to the original name, no longer just The Lucid), the Milkman’s Union, and others. Do yourself a favorite and go get Frontier, Goldyhymns (this was the one recorded at Mayo Street Arts, which we got to stop by and check out and make the “Hallelujah Banks” video), and The Original Love (all available for “name-your-own-price”) and enjoy the music while you check out the photos below from the show.
