The last time Mister Heavenly played in Portland, they were newsworthy for the fact that some actor named Michael Cera was playing bass with them or something. This time, when Mister Heavenly play Branx August 18th, they're just plain newsworthy. Comprised of Nick Thorburn (Islands/The Unicorns), Ryan Kattner (Man Man) and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse), the trio is gaining notoriety for their playful pop rhythms and skewed sensibilities.
Besides the 18th being the hometown show for Plummer, it's also a good place to grab Mister Heavenly's Sub Pop debut album, Out Of Love, seeing as how it'll be released only 2 days prior. For now, listen to Mister Heavenly's "Pineapple Girl" below and try to imagine which bands the other Arrested Development actors would be in. It's a fun little game!
