The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Holiday Friends is an indie rock band from Astoria, Oregon. Founding members Scott Fagerland, Jon Fagerland and Zack O’Connor formed the band while attending University in Moscow, Idaho. After a few years of experimentation, they solidified their lineup with Portland musician Joey Ficken (Sea Wolf, Swords) The band recorded their official debut, Major Magic with Kevin Robinson (Viva Voce, Blue Giant) at Woodlawn Studios in Portland, Oregon. The album was released in 2014 to a sold-out crowd at Portland’s Mississippi Studios. Holiday Friends’ upbeat, danceable, synth-rock has landed them on Portland’s Alternative Radio 94.7 FM, OPB Music and TV shows Shameless and MTV’s Awkward.
Since then Holiday Friends has built their own studio in Astoria, where they continually record music in conjunction with L.A.-based producer and audio engineer Chris Sorem (Avi Buffalo, Vulfpeck, Rufus Wainright). With their latest EP entitled Most of Us, the group hones in on the pop and dance elements that they are known for, while also expanding their use of samples and experimental production.
