Pickwick, Lost Lander and Magic Fades


Doug Fir (map) Southeast
Tue., Jan. 7, 9 p.m. 2014 21+

$3 with RSVP

Like any soul outfit, the sound of Seattle's Pickwick gathers itself around virtuosic lead vocals. Galen Disston's been called the "best singer in the Seattle music scene," which is a pretty damn big coincidence, since tonight is the night you're finally labeled the "best dancer in the Portland music scene."

Nothing is as satisfying as seeing a cheap show, especially when the show is actually good, and not just a family jam band playing at the local burger joint in matching Goodwill sweaters. This $3 show includes local favorites Lost Lander and Magic Fades, with Seattle's Pickwick headlining. Those who like Fleet Foxes and lots of vocal reverb will enjoy the smooth aural caresses of Lost Lander. Magic Fades plays tasty, spliced slow jams that define so much of EDM-informed R&B. Then there's Pickwick, who sound like the Black Keys after they Fitzed and Tantrumed their way to become poppier and more uptempo. The show's caveat is that you have to RSVP with Red Bull first—and even that won't prevent you from potentially ending up at the end of a very long line, shaking in the cold as you wait to head down the Doug Fir steps.
