The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Quasi + Opening Set by Slang. Quasi (Sam Coomes and Janet Weiss) is the enduring perennial Portland two-piece indie band behind 9 beloved albums and countless raucous performances. Although both band members have been in many other seminal musical outfits throughout the past several decades (Sleater-Kinney, Heatmiser, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Elliott Smith, The Hitmakers, etc), Quasi remains their centerpiece for creativity and camaraderie. Quasi's distinctive perspective, vocal harmonies, and off-center personal lyrics run throughout their almost 30-year history. They are currently working on new songs for their 10th record which will hit the racks in 2022.
Slang is four accomplished Portland musicians joining forces to make one of the city's most thrilling bands. Each member with an impressive pedigree, Drew Grow (Pastor's Wives, Modern Kin), Kathy Foster (The Thermals, Roseblood, All Girl Summer Fun Band), Anita Lee Elliott (Viva Voce, Blue Giant, Anita Lee and The Handsome Three), and Janet Weiss (Quasi, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag, the Jicks) the four-piece powerfully melds together their separate legacies into one explosive ensemble. Their first album, Cockroach In A Ghost Town, will be released on the Kill Rock Stars label spring of 2022.
