Mount Eerie, Tom Blood 

When: Mon., June 9, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10-12
Portland's Tom Blood is a poet that shares the stage with bands more often than with other poets. His books are released by Marriage Records' publishing offshoot and come with downloads of his spoken word, and his collaborative album with Portland soundscape artist Jordan Dykstra could be the best experimental spoken word album since Steven Jesse Bernstein's Prison. Somehow this fiercely dedicated writer—who has said he writes for over 10 hours a day and sees twitches and hand-cramps as a sign that he's "finally getting somewhere"—has firmly established himself as part of the Northwest music community. Tonight's billing with Phil Elverum's ever-evolving Mount Eerie project is a perfect pairing: two artists that share a penchant for the natural world and have unique, reclusively obsessive brands of eccentricity that result in gloriously unconventional work.
