Sacred Trees

A pre-NYE party with Ethereal Sea and more

It's pretty much a general consensus among everyone who paid attention to the excess of crap that happened this year that 2017 can't fuck right off. Seeing as New Year's Eve celebrations are a big deal in Portland there's plenty of opportunity to say that sayonara we all seek, but for New Year's Eve eve? There will be some "heavy music for heavy times," as advertised. 

At the Kenton Club on 12.30, the purveyors of such heaviness range in their sonic density without fail, each elevating their sounds from a foundation of psych. Eugene's Sacred Trees involve hypnotic swirls of sound hazed by unrefined airs of lo-fi garage, while Robots of the Ancient World offer straight up stoner rock. Menin gets a little bit harsher will doom laden riffs, and Ethereal Sea embody facets of each, melding stoner, doom, psych and garage into a pretty powerful force.

Get the pregame started a night early.
