Who Is STRFKR?

Some of you might be asking this question about the show happening tonight at SPACE Gallery

STRFKR After The Jump Fest CMJ Showcase, October 2008 - Knitting Factory, NYC

STRFKR After The Jump Fest CMJ Showcase, October 2008 - Knitting Factory, NYC

It’s been a while since I’ve seen STRFKR live. The last time was where the above photo was taken, when the band played a CMJ showcase curated by After The Jump, the NYC-based music blog collective from my pre-HillyTown days. Since then the band went through a schizophrenic period that briefly saw them called Pyramid/Pyramiddd. Yeah, the name change never stuck with us, either, but the music did. See for yourself on their latest, Reptillians. There seems to be a bit of a good buzz about this show – refreshing to see when an act from the other side of the country (the other Portland to be precise) comes all the way out here to play, since it doesn’t always work out that way. For those who are still curious, I’ve compiled some visual/audio treats below to pique your interest. Furthermore, tourmates Champagne, Champagne promise to party in their own special way, plus locals Foam Castles open! Bonus: Midcoast electronic darlings Vistas (who you may have heard are participating in an upcoming HillyTown event) kick things off and keep it going between acts.


And some tasty Champagne, Champagne for you…

So yeah, come ready to dance!
