Ahhh, I’ve played with Scott from Rainstick Cowbell several times over the last few years and I’ve known him since his days in Creepy Old Trucks. He’s quite a performer, AND: This event is his cd release party. Rainstick Cowbell the new wave of punk band in a box. One man with an acoustic guitar who’s always about to go supernova. His songs are beautiful, though. Very melodic and definately from a tradition that Elliott Smith came from. Again, another punk rocker with an acoustic guitar. Having been the opening act for numerous punk and metal bands as an acoustic performer, I can tell you that the solo mission is greater in its rawness and directness than the loud bombast. Standing up there all vulnerable is far more bad-ass. Sorry, that’s just how it is.. Saturday June 8th here in Portland. Come on down.
