The Secret Drum Band and Dubai


Revival Drum Shop (map) Southeast
Wed., Sept. 19, 8 p.m. 2012 All Ages


The Creative Music Guild is probably one of Portland's least-known non-profits, but they're one of the key players in archiving evolutions of the city's deepest musical troves. Typically, local music ink here furthers genres documented in year-end "best of" lists, while bands of experimental and noise arrays commonly get the short end—but those musical pariahs (strictly referring to popularity) are usually the most accurate in expressing life in a city where it rains six months out of the year. Tonight, the CMG presents Secret Drum Band and Dubai in a continuation of the Outset Series, which hosts improvised sets by experimental groups at intimate locations free of charge. Your hearing might get fucked, but the alacrity these groups have for rhythmic collision is best experienced raw. JONATHAN MAGDALENO
