Well folk me in the folking face. A few days after we wrote about their debut offering, the sensitive supergroup known as the
Traveling Indieburys Monsters of Folk (sorta Portlander M. Ward, reverb fanatic Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis) will make their Portland debut on October 14th at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
Take it away Mr. Press Release:
Monsters of Folk was born on the road five years ago when My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, and singer/songwriter M. Ward toured together and regularly sat in on each other’s sets. Now armed with the eclectic and consistently striking songs that make up their debut album, the illustrious quartet will reconvene for a Fall tour. The four members will be switching instruments and trading roles throughout each show, maintaining the freewheeling and highly collaborative spirit of their work together thus far.
Freewheeling and highly collaborative? I'm so there.
