We survived another music-filled weekend here in Portland and are back to take you along for another podcast joyride, this week featuring Los Angeles band The Evangenitals, who rolled through Oregon on tour supporting their new record, Moby Dick (or The Album).
The band played a fantastic set headlining our That Much Further West Podcast showcase last week, and afterwards podcast host Mike Lee caught up with singers Juli Crockett Feldman and Lisa Dee for the interview. The ladies talk about their philosophy for surviving the rigors of the road, capturing new fans and what it means to be “making it” in the music business. Juli and Lisa proved as lovely and articulate as they are fun and talented, and we’re grateful they took time to speak with Mike about their music and the new record.
The Evangenitals show launched a wild weekend of rock and roll that had our fearless hosts running all over town to see some of our favorite bands. Philly grabbed the baton on Friday night and did some serious gig-hopping, catching a number of acts including Matthew Lindley at Beaterville Cafe and the CD release show by Spirit Lake at Mississippi Studios. Eric dropped in for the second of Hillstomp’s epic two-night stand at Doug Fir that included a set by local faves Root Jack.
This week’s playlist reflects a lot of what the guys witnessed this weekend and includes songs by Lindley, a brand-new tune from Hillstomp, a little bit of Root Jack and a bunch of stuff from some of our favorites, including a new song from Chuck Ragan. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t send a shout out to our Hoot sister from Copper & Coal, Carra Stasney, who gave birth last week to her first child, a boy named Dean Michael. Congrats Carra, and thanks for all your great music!
