Mt. Tabor Theater

Mosley Wotta hails from Bend and is fronted by charismatic emcee Jason Graham, whose theater background is notably evident in a live setting. It would be a misnomer to classify the group as strictly hiphop, considering the heavy funk influence as well as forays into jam band territory that thankfully stop well short of abhorrent needless noodling. The name Mosley Wotta alludes to the fact that all people are mostly water, creating a musical MO focused on uniting and uplifting that trickles down from the Spearhead tributary of hiphop. Seattle's blues/funk hybrid Hot Bodies in Motion and Portland's own genre-bending Ascetic Junkies open, the latter bringing their distinct blend of bluegrass, pop, and funk with a punk ethos. This bill is about one act shy (jazz-influenced shoegaze/grindcore perhaps?) of covering nearly every musical genre. RYAN FEIGH
