Dropping Gems: Wires for Salu, Ghost Feet, DJAO, Citymouth, Bone Rock, Philip Grass 

When: Sun., April 28, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
The six tracks on Dropping Gems' latest compilation, Gem Drops Three, provide a glimpse at the state of electronic music, from the Northwest and beyond. All but one of the contributors (the Boston-based M. Constant) will be on hand for tonight's release celebration, including Portland duo Philip Grass, Portland/Olympia duo Ghost Feet, and visitors from Seattle and San Francisco. The music contained on Gem Drops Three is uniformly lovely and runs quite the gamut—Dropping Gems has provided some handy genre descriptors, like "maximalist shuttle launch," "emo-juke," and "underground lake narrative"—but what's remarkable is how well Gem Drops Three works as a whole. All these contributors complement each other rather than drown each other out, and the same should prove true for tonight's bill. NED LANNAMANN
