So who made our list? Click over to Line Out to find out.

Then join us on Thursday March 6th for the Young Ones showcase at Neumo's and Sole Repair--nine stellar bands playing at two venues for fives bucks that goes to benefit Real Change.

Quatuor pour la fin du temps: Maybe the Best Music of the 20th Century

posted by on December 27 at 12:38 PM

In the talk show in my mind, five guests endlessly argue between Quartour and A Love Supreme. But whatever—I am terribly excited about this event, on January 10th.

In a genre-spanning program, Joshua Roman has chosen three innovative 20th century works. Beginning with the Quartet for the End of Time by French composer Olivier Messiaen. Featuring the same instrumentation as the Messiaen (clarinet, violin, cello, and piano), Dan Visconti's Fractured Jams is an exploration of the thrill, confusion and driving power of rock and carefully-crafted lyrisicm of Tin Pan Alley. In the program's second half, Roman along with clarinetist Bill Kalinkos, pianist Grace Fong, and violinist Amy Iwazumi, vocalist Sarah Rudinoff, "Awesome's" John Osebold, and percussionist Doug Marrapodi perform a medley of works by the influential rock band Radiohead.

Not because of Joshua Roman, Sarah Rudinoff, or John Osebold, even though each one is demonstrably better than most things.

No, I'm excited just to hear the Quatuor pour la fin du temps, which was composed by a French soldier (and Catholic mystic) and was first performed in a Nazi prison camp and sounds like a soul leaving a body and floating up to heaven. Then it sounds like a portent of the apocalypse. Then a long clarinet solo that sounds exactly like its name: "the abyss of birds." Then it sounds like floating again.


Hear more bits of it here.

And read Alex Ross's very good story about it here

The essay includes solider-musicians: "He [the Quartet's original clarinetist] was an Algerian-born Jew who survived the war through blind luck and mad courage. He tried several times to escape, and, in April, 1941, he succeeded: while being transferred from one camp to another by train, he jumped from the top of a fast-moving cattle car, with his clarinet under his arm."

And an improbably kindly Nazi prison guard: "A German patriot with anti-Nazi tendencies, he kept a sympathetic watch over Jewish prisoners, repeatedly advising them not to try to escape, because they would be safer in Stalag VIIIA than in Vichy France."

And the weird, and weirdly attractive, composer: "He loved God in terms that were sensual, almost sexual." (He also had synesthesia and said he could, literally, see the music.)


January 10, ladies and gentlemen. I can't wait.

The Program, Local Hiphop, and The Crocodile

posted by on December 19 at 1:59 PM

The Program sold out last night, sold out tonight, and the remaining three shows will certainly sell all of their remaining tickets. "A lot of people came last night expecting to get in, but we had to turn them away. You have to buy tickets early," recommends Dave Meinert, the show's organizer. The remaining nights feature Jake One, The Physics, Ohmega Watts, and these cool cats...
l_a4c7621441d4f4563189e529f7f73912.jpg...Dyme Def.

This is what Paul Constant had to say about last night's show on Line Out:

Last night, I went to the first night of The Program at Neumo’s. I got there around ten, thinking that, you know, nothing usually happens at a show before ten. I caught the very end of Unexpected Arrival’s set, and, based on the sweaty, euphoric faces in the audience, something had just happened. Neumo’s was sold out, and the floor was packed—for the third act from the headliner! On a Tuesday!—and I really started to regret showing up late.

Now, let's give this success a little thought. Let's think about it in the context of the closing of The Crocodile. What does it mean for local, indie hiphop to have its biggest show in the city's history on the very week that an indie rock institution collapses? Is this an indication of a transition? A sign of the times? Let's think about that.

The realm of the three kingdoms...
l_00e978ca2cdce9ea70b0acf4702454ca-1.jpg...will be represented during The Program, a five-day hiphop festival curated by the Blue Scholars.


If Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland made even a little effort, the three cities could be experienced as one urban realm. The Program is a kind of hiphop expression for that desirable connection, the linking of the three into one idea, one consciousness, one movement. Swollen Members, Dyme Def, Sirens Echo are some of the many regional acts that will rock the one reality in the dead middle of December. To read more about The Program, go to its website. There's lots to see; lots to think about.


This is the new dreaming.
