Michael Lerner, the voice and reason behind the Merge-signed indie-pop group Telekinesis, just announced via Twitter that he's making the short trip down to Portland to perform some songs in the Ace Hotel lobby between 5 and 6pm this evening. Some of those songs might include tracks off his forthcoming second album 12 Desperate Straight Lines (currently streaming at NPR's First Listen), or recent covers of Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk" or Devo's "The Day My Baby Gave Me A Surprize" he did with newly-recruited Telekinesis band mate Cody Votolato (who also happens to be playing at Beauty Bar tonight at 10pm). Whatever he decides to play, you'll be glad he did.
