It's been absent for five years, but the Fuzzy Ball makes a long-awaited and welcome return. A celebration of all things shoegaze, the Fuzzy Ball sees 10 acts from the Northwest playing covers of vintage tunes by bands like Ride and My Bloody Valentine alongside their own fuzzy originals. Portland staples the Prids are no strangers to the magic that guitar effects pedals can weave, nor is the Dandy Warhols' Peter Holmström, who fronts Pete International Airport. Plus, Rick Bain and the Genius Position make a welcome return to the spotlight, which hopefully means a long-overdue new album is somewhere on the horizon. Portland psych label Reverb Records is hosting the shindig, and they'll give you a free 20-song CD compilation just for showing up. Ten bands mean that it's going to be a long night, but thank goodness the Fuzzy Ball is back—and fuzzier than ever. NED LANNAMANN
