Blank Realm, Cool Meiners, Pacific City Nightlife Vision, Focus Troup, DJ Spencer Clark, DJ Mike McGonigal 

When: Thu., June 6, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
Tonight is a hallmark in the comings and goings of artistic talents in Portland, as Mike McGonigal, the creative force behind Yeti magazine and supporter of many innovations in art and music—locally and internationally—gives his last DJ set as a Portland resident (he's moving to Detroit later this year). The guests of honor are Australian band Blank Realm, who strike me as the ultimate incarnation of the thankfully abandoned "lo-fi" tag—embodying the aesthetic of forcibly relaxed yet viscerally scintillating pop music (which in this case, as with much of this alleged genre, is actually recorded with top-notch fidelity). Cool Meiners, a hybrid project of Eat Skull/Hunches talents, will also play tonight, as well as Focus Troup, the new project from prolific performer John Rau, whose early recordings bristle with the life-affirming qualities that hum in every Brian Eno song.
