After spending much of June making their way down the California coast and back, Hurtbird celebrate their homecoming tonight as Portland's resident (only?) indie-rap-rock outfit. Deftly overstepping any allegiance to genre, the band shares qualities with many of the groups with which they've shared stages: the experimental underpinnings of Menomena, and the unabashed genre mash-up of Why? Last year's Nature vs. City is rife with both raw human elements and samples, and instrumentation both acoustic and electronic—from hand drums to drum machine. The centerpiece of Hurtbird is Ryan Hayes' explosive, almost acrobatic verbiage, one that he increases in intensity during live performance. Tonight's show is also a benefit for KZME, the independent radio station that is in the business of promoting and supporting local musical endeavors and operates under the slogan "Music Where You Live."
