Video Debut: Crow and the Canyon, “Golden Chains”

By Kara Wilbeck Photo by Little Green Eyes Media, courtesy of Crow and the Canyon Y’all like to hear about great new bands, right? Well here’s one you might want to pay attention to: Crow and the Canyon. You might not have heard of this band yet, but you probably know some of its members: Ben Larsen (guitar, mandolin, fiddle – formerly a member of Giraffe Dodgers, Twisted Whistle, Renegade String Band), Austin Quattlebaum (banjo and guitar), and relatively new Portland transplants Miles Berry (upright bass) and Leigh Jones (ukelele). With a group of musicians this seasoned, you know this band is going places. The folky, grassy group features gorgeous three-part harmonies and some great foot-stompin’ tunes, and they’ve been touring their way around the West Coast for the past few weeks. Check them out this Monday, October 13, where they’ll be headlining at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland! Here is the debut of Crow and the Canyon’s latest video, a performance of their song “Golden Chains” (written by Ben Larsen and featuring Leigh Jones’ soulful, beautiful vocals) on the balcony of the Crazy Horse Saloon in Nevada City, CA. Check it out! Crow and the Canyon will play at the Doug Fir Lounge on Monday, October 13. Tickets are $8 – $10 and can be purchased here....

Preview: Leftover Salmon @ Crystal Ballroom, Oct. 10

By Kara Wilbeck Photo by Alexander Maso When a college friend first played me Little Feat’s iconic live album “Waiting for Columbus,” my first thoughts were, “Cool, that was fun!” A couple days passed… then BAM! All I wanted was to listen to “Waiting for Columbus” over and over and over again. Considering that 10 years later it’s still one of my go-to albums, my surprise obsession seems to have been a lasting one. There is really only one other album that’s done that to me, and it’s Leftover Salmon’s “Bridges to Bert.” I went from zero to I-fucking-love-Leftover-Salmon-give-me-more in a matter of days. So when Leftover Salmon recently announced the addition of Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne as a permanent member of the band (Payne had been sitting in with the band on an increasingly regular basis), you can imagine how beside myself with excitement I was – and am. This Friday, Oct. 10 Leftover Salmon will hit the stage at Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, which (outdoor venues aside) is the perfect place to experience the band’s signature mix of bouncy, goofy, grassy, heartfelt and straight-up brain-bogglingly psychedelic music. If you’re already familiar with Leftover Salmon, you know that they are self-described as “polyethnic cajun slamgrass.” If you’ve never seen them before, get ready to find out why that is the only reasonable genre description for them. Leftover Salmon will play at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland on Friday, October 10. Kyle Hollingsworth Band opens. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here. Doors at 8 p.m., show at 9. All...
