School of Rock performs Stone RRock


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Sat., Jan. 15, 3 p.m. 2011 All Ages


Leading your children to a subgenre of music referred to as “stoner rock” might be considered ill advised for most parents. However, for the forward thinkers who enroll their tots at Portland’s School of Rock, it’s an opportunity to show their offspring that the heaviest and best riffs are often found underground (even if they have to purposefully misspell the event to emphasis the “rock” instead of the “stoner”). In lieu of handing the tykes a bong and a copy of Sleep’s Holy Mountain, the School of Rock places instruments in students’ hands and teaches them that chops are not necessarily measured by speed or a crisp guitar tone. Tonight, the troop explores fuzzy tracks by the likes of Pentagram, Electric Wizard, Kyuss, and High on Fire. They’ll be joined on stage by local riff-professors from Red Fang, Danava, Nether Regions, plus the original guitarist from Blue Cheer, Leigh Stephens, playing their original tunes alongside the young hopefuls. Parents, be proud. Your kids are cooler than you are. ARIS WALES
