Doug Fir

This little newspaper has yet to rappel down from its Cotton Jones reverie. The husband/wife duo of Michael Nau and Whitney McGraw wowed us at last year's Pickathon with an honest performance under the momentary Oregon sun, and their records—most recently, the reverberating late afternoons of full-length Tall Hours in the Glowstream, and a joyful gospel blip of the EP Sit Beside Your Vegetables—have remained as constant in our ears as their shows in our music listings. And what once began as a re-imagining of Nau and McGraw's nationally heralded act Page France, Cotton Jones is gaining more momentum and attention based on its own merits—this show at the Doug Fir is their first headlining gig in Portland, with a trip to play Sasquatch! in the Gorge shortly thereafter, and all of it is extremely well deserved. If you haven't yet had the pleasure of seeing this fantastic band live, tonight is your chance—don't miss it. RAQUEL NASSER
