Quiet Music Fest of Portland


Disjecta (map) North
Sat., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. 2011 21+


The new Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks album is absolutely terrific; hands down his finest solo release to date. But, as these things often work, it's still too early to talk about the Beck-produced Mirror Traffic, which won't dominate your turntable (or iTunes playlist) until its August 23 release date. As part of the Quiet Music Festival, there is no telling what Malkmus will play (the softer songs from Mirror Traffic? Pavement's "Silent Kit"? Quiet Riot?), but chances are it'll be soft on volume yet heavy on impact. Other notable billmates include experimental Los Angeles outfit Lucky Dragons, and the vivid soundscapes of Dragging an Ox through Water, whose hushed vocal delivery and unique arrangements seem tailor-made for an event like this.
