Empty Space Orchestra: On Tour 

Empty Space Orchestra is heading out on tour this week, hitting up locations that up till now had been untrodden territory for the local instrumental space rockers.

I ran into guitarist Shane Thomas last night at Parrilla Grill, where Thomas, a faithful employee of the wrap and burrito purveyor, constructed my Red Headed Stepchild (chicken, Frank's hot sauce, Gorgonzola cheese, spinach = awesome) and chatted a bit about the tour. Thomas said the band is most stoked for Wednesday night's Portland show playing the middle slot in a bill headlined by Water and Bodies (check out my profile of the band from last year) and Symmetry Symmetry at the awesome Doug Fir Lounge.

From there, the band heads north for a sh0w in Tacoma on Thursday night at the New Frontier Lounge and then a performance at Seattle's Q Cafe on Friday.  Empty Space then head south -- way the hell south -- to play Ashland on Saturday and Arcata, Cali. on Monday night.

Empty Space becomes just one of several acts from Central Oregon, who've hit the road in the past year, joining the likes of Larry and His Flask, Person People, Moon Mountain Ramblers and several others.

  • Don't Miss The Ascetic Junkies At Silver Moon

    • Dec 2, 2011
    It’s been a while since we’ve seen the talented (and now married) Matt & Kali in Bend Oregon… but that’s all going to change tonight at Silver Moon Tap Room! If you’ve missed past coverage of The Ascetic Junkies, well… you must have been hidden under a rock. From their 2010 album This Cage Has No Bottom, to the new music they are creating (and are sure to share with us tonight), most people just can’t get enough of their unique folk/rock/pop/dance goodness.
