Old Age, Ferns and Deer Souls

Two years ago, Ferns drove up I-5 from Eugene to record at Old Standard Sound with engineer Justin Higgins. The trio had a simple goal: to put out a 7-inch. But life got in the way, and Ferns couldn't afford to press the vinyl. Up to this point, the story is far from exceptional; more often than not, smallish bands wish well beyond their means. But rather than let the dream die, Ferns stuck to it, stashed away bits of cash when they could, and finally got the damn thing made. And so tonight the group, led by guitarist Jacob Pavlak (formerly of Yeltsin), celebrate the overdue release of two angular, driving, precisely executed rock tunes etched into sweet, sweet wax. But this little tale is about more than that—it's about following through. So indeed, cheers are in order. To perseverance! ANDREW R TONRY
