A DOUBLE-HEADER FEATURING TWO OF PORTLAND'S MOST INVENTIVE AND EXPLOSIVE ROCK TRIOS
$10 advance / $10 day of show
THE GHOST EASE IS A PORTLAND ROCK BAND CREATED AND DIRECTED BY SONGWRITER JEM MURCIANO. THE PROJECT IS KNOWN AND LOVED FOR PRODUCING RAW, HYPNOTIC OPUSES BY WAY OF HEAVY GUITARS, FRENZIED DRUMS, AND LILTING VOCAL TIMBRES.
Máscaras, comprised of three Portland music scene veterans is what happens when an off-the-cuff jam session between friends really, really works. Even in its recorded form, “it’s a jam with themes that live and breathe,” the band says, “leaving room for the unexpected.” The trio plays heavy, propellant psychedelic music with surf-rock twang and mathy sensibilities. They call it “maximalist indigenous psych”. These are urgent, intense songs, but they’re also playful. It’s the sound of three homies making exactly the music they want to make, for no one else but themselves. It just so happens that people love it.
