This is a past event.

Diesto, Honduran, Fellwoods 

When: Fri., Aug. 30, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $3
Diesto might be the Gentle Ben of Portland's heavy vibes scene. That's not to say that their music isn't built upon mean, lumbering drums or massive riffs. And it has nothing to do with the three-to-one beard ratio among the members, either. While each of their songs is as towering and fuzzy as a grizzly bear, they each have a certain cuddliness to them, too. Local peddlers of harshness Eolian Empire are set to release the band's fifth full-length, For Water or Blood, later this month. The record harbors a fair amount of dissonance and noise along with the weighted doom riffage, but it still has that somber introspection and sensitivity as well. ARIS WALES
