Rick Bass, Stellarondo, Willy Vlautin 

When: Mon., March 11, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12
Missoula band Stellarondo teamed with writer Rick Bass to record Rick Bass and Stellarondo, the album they laid to tape live at Portland's Type Foundry studio last April. Bass reads three short stories and one essay as the band performs sketch-like musical backing beneath him, and if the democracy is slightly tilted—Bass's narratives typically win out over the abstraction of the music—the result won't be unfamiliar, or unpleasing, to listeners of contemporary audio programs like The Moth or Radiolab. Fittingly, Richmond Fontaine's Willy Vlautin opens the show; perhaps as renowned for his novels as his music, Vlautin will play songs to open the show, but you can expect he'll tell some remarkable stories along the way.
