EMP Museum says
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks plus Tomten perform as part of the Influencers Concert Series at EMP.

By bringing together up-and-coming artists with the established acts that inspired them, the Influencers Concert Series celebrates how the greatest forms of creativity are often sparked by sharing in the creativity of others.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks is a rock band consisting of Stephen Malkmus, Mike Clark, Joanna Bolme, and Jake Morris. Malkmus was the main singer and songwriter behind the influential ‘90s indie rock band Pavement. The Jicks formed in 2000, almost immediately after Pavement's 1999 "hiatus" began. After several successful albums they returned to the studio in 2013 and enlisted the production skills of former Pavement live engineer Remko Schouten to record their sixth studio album, Wig Out at Jagbags.

Tomten is a trio from Seattle, Washington. Often described as baroque or dream pop for their prominent use of organ/electric piano and analog synthesizers, they share a wide influence from early power-pop to electric folk. Following the release of Wednesday's Children, Tomten began work on what would be their newest record, The Farewell Party. Rather than drawing from a batch of songs written years apart, they wrote the body of this album within one year, recording with engineer/producer Jason Quever (Papercuts) during the summer of 2013 in Sacramento and San Francisco. The Farewell Party was released August 19, 2014, on Seattle label Versicolor, with a US tour to follow. Tomten's live set now features Brian Noyeswatkins, Jake Brady, and Dillon Sturtevant.
