PORTLAND — Three veteran Portland indie music outfits will join forces for an April 16 show at The Foggy Notion.
The Pinehurst Kids will be joined by the Welfare State and the Honus Huffhines for the Thursday night happening. The show, for which there's a $5 cover charge, begins at 9:30 p.m. at The Foggy Notion located at 3416 N Lombard St.
The Pinehurst Kids will perform at the Foggy Notion fresh off an appearance at Portland's The Malt Ball, held this year at the Wonder Ballroom. The band is marking its 20th year of creating wide-ranging pop, from the dreamy "Return to Sender" off the Kids' 2012 gem "Nobody Talks" to the rollicking "Dumptruck," off the 1997 release "Minnesota Hotel." The trio — vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Joe Davis along with drummer Robler Kind and bassist Gene Pool — remains one of the city's best-loved units.
After a short break, the Welfare State has come roaring back into Portland's fold in a very welcome way. The edgy and insightful songs on the group's "High Times" record (think: Television or the poppier tracks from King Crimson, circa the early 1980s) come from Eric Gregory (former Crack City Rockers) and are deftly augmented by the tasteful guitar licks of Kenneth Coleman. Pinehurst Kid Davis has joined the group on drums while bassist Joe Chiusano rounds out one of Portland's better lineup of musicians.
The Honus Huffhines will be supporting their second record, "Feel Safe, Be Safe" at The Foggy Notion. The LP (available on Braxeling Records) features a bevy of jagged and catchy offerings influenced by the Zombies, the Elephant 6 collective and Portland, the group's home city, itself. The record, recorded by guitarist Alex Dickey at Fitzcarraldo Studios, features full contributions from songwriter and guitarist Andy Giegerich, drummer Joe Kobjerowski and bassist Eric O'Connor. (12" LP review copies of "Feel Safe, Be Safe" are available upon request.)
