Snowblind Traveler


Al's Den (map) Downtown
Feb. 23-March 1, 7 p.m. 2014 21+


In what ought to amount to an introduction of sorts for lots of Portlanders, Matt Dorrien—AKA Snowblind Traveler—brings snapshots of yesteryear balladry and Americana to a weeklong stint at Al's Den. Dorrien released Lost on the North Hills in early 2013, an LP steeped in smart, melodic acoustic guitar work with downtrodden tales and tribal rhythms. His upcoming full-length, Confederate Burials, is a stunning collection of gritty, temporal meditations on wartime ("Confederate Burial") when it's not embracing Harry Nilsson on songs like "Lobster" and "Lazy Stream" or odes to Chinatown in "SF Shanghai." It's the type of album that almost everyone is going to gush over when it's released, so you might as well get a leg up now. RYAN J. PRADO
