- We are so done with you and your succulents, California.
The seriously awesome psychedelic folk rock outfit the Parson Red Heads have decided to descend from the smoggy canyons of Los Angeles and hop I-5 all the way back to their roots in the Pacific Northwest (they're originally from Eugene). With this decision comes patience, readjustment, and a busy tour schedule, complete with three residencies between Eugene and Seattle and even a date in Vancouver, BC. In their "new" hometown, you can catch them at the White Eagle (836 N Russell) every Monday in February with local pals Marty Marquis (Blitzen Trapper), Mike Coykendall, Old Light, and more.
In honor of their return (they're due back in late January), here's a track from their latest EP, Orangufang. Welcome back, Parsons. Please help us combat our Vitamin D deficiency with your sun-drenched rock and roll.
UPDATE: This is not an official move for the Parson Red Heads; just a relocation for the time being to play many shows in our vicinity. We can only hope that it becomes permanent, perhaps to be settled over a friendly game of Tug-O-War? Can we find a rope long enough to span the entire Pacific Coast? If so, my money is totally on us, Portland.
