Apes Tapes Showcase: Onuinu, Adventures with Might, Vanimal, XDS, Pegasus Dream 

When: Thu., Nov. 17, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5
Portland has a bizarre preoccupation with novelty and nostalgia; just look at us with our dick-shaped doughnuts, our perversely complicated methods of making coffee, and our home-renovation centers filled to the eaves with antique toilets. Perhaps this is why Apes Tapes—the all-cassette label started by Radiation City's Lizzy Ellison and Cameron Spies—makes perfect sense in the confines of this city. In its one measly year of existence, the imprint has released a laudable amount of local music at an extremely affordable price and all by way of their own grunt work, for the sake of the art. Not to mention that the music they're putting out is generally inventive and plain fun, this well-curated bill being no exception. Additionally, all bands playing this night have songs included on Apes Tapes' rousing and celebratory third compilation, Mixed Ape 3, which you'll be able to purchase at the show. RAQUEL NASSER
