"Spencer Kelley is the brains behind some of our favorite Northwest bands (Wallpaper, Basemint) and a true student of classic rock ’n’ roll songwriting. Pale Noise is his latest endeavor, blending Small Faces jangle-pop and Exile on Main Street-style blues-rock with a distinctly Kelley-ish twist, as heard on this swaggering anthem of authenticity from the band’s debut, Some Crude Grace." -City Arts Magazine
"If you’ve heard Omar Schambacher’s band Great Spiders, you know that their songs are as persistent as their creator: undeniable pop masterworks with catchy choruses and hooky leads, lyrics inscrutable enough for the background yet thoughtful enough for the fore." -City Arts Magazine
Scott Yoder now has a backing band made up of Stefan Rubicz - keys, Aaron Oxford - guitar, and Conor Kiley - drums. This show will be their European tour homecoming! Over the course of 12 years, Scott's previous band The Pharmacy toured the world and released 5 full-length records before breaking up in the summer of 2014. Early last year, he released his first solo cassette and started touring solo around the country via Greyhound bus playing lots of shows with the likes of Jessica Pratt, Juan Wauters, Kevin Morby, Jesse Sykes, Mark Lanegan, The Abigails, Jimmy Whispers and a bunch more.
Born under a different guise in Tacoma, WA, Sloucher began as a creative outlet for guitarist/singer/drummer Jay Clancy (Makeup Monsters/Slushy). The band has since evolved to include guitarist Kyle Musselwhite (The Globes), bassist Allen Trainer (Strange Wilds), and drummer Jack Hamrick (Slushy).
