According to Facebook, it's Revival Drum Shop's birthday today. And it's true that the Northeast Portland percussion emporium opened its doors in February 2009, and in three short years it's become a reliable, well-loved source for all things drum, specializing in custom and vintage items.
Tonight the Creative Music Guild hosts a show at the drum shop featuring a solo set from Luke Wyland—perhaps better known as one-half of AU. Wyland typically handles keyboard, pedal steel, and vocals for AU but tonight's improvised set will see him playing solo accordion and augmenting it with electronics. It should be quite unique. Also playing tonight are jazz drummer Tim DuRoche and saxophonist Eugene Lee, who will be playing an improvised set as well. Tonight's show is part of the ongoing Outset Series, a concert series that focuses on experimental, avant-garde, and improvised music.
