If you haven't already read Bri Brey's bit on the re-emergence of Armature, a local gallery and event space at 50 N.E. Scott St., you probably should. Regardless, though, there's more than just art to catch at the space's reopening at 6:30 pm. Saturday. There're bands, too.
Isles, a Bend quartet, is one of the ensembles performing this evening. And its album's visual aesthetic jives perfectly with pretty much any imaginable gallery space. The troupe's schtick hedges toward post-rock, like a sleepy Tortoise, just more focused on melody than rhythm. It's also the rare chance to catch a gig in Bend that doesn't involve acoustic instruments—even if we like those as well.
