This is a past event.

The Black Clouds, Mythological Horses, Beat Totem, DJ Miss Prid 

When: Fri., March 21, 9 p.m. 2014
Anchorage/Seattle band Mythological Horses are centered on the songs of one-time Portlander Shawn Holley; the band's bassist, Tim Janchar, lives here in town and co-runs Hovercraft Records, which recently released the group's self-titled album. That album is a fizzy lifting drink of a record, with buzz and gunk gleefully smeared all over its 12 tracks. Holley's unhinged, squealing voice gives the initial impression that this is a slapdash affair, but Mythological Horses have made a watertight, effervescent, fun-as-hell rock 'n' roll record, with more than a few classics tucked in its vinyl grooves (try to shake opener "Cold Heart" from your brain after dropping the needle). The band plays Portland tonight, and you should make the trip down to East End's tiny cellar to get your mitts on a copy. NED LANNAMANN
