$10-12

While his last two releases have been generously spaced out throughout the past decade, pianist/singer James Angell was a Portland fixture "back in the day" (if acts like King Black Acid or his former band Nero's Rome ring a bell, you've likely heard of him). Tonight he celebrates the release of Private Player, a lush selection of shimmering rock numbers that in their best moments share the moodiness of The The's masterwork Dusk. Angell's sappy arrangements and decadent vocal stylings can come off a bit overindulgent at times, but seeing how his previous work caught the ear of Duran Duran's John Taylor, there is definitely an audience for the music of Private Player.
