The Source

Suggests

Inherently, Appalachian hill folk are DIY types of people. Portland blues revival duo Hillstomp has taken to that same homegrown philosophy, fusing what could easily be heaps of garbage into John Johnson's "drum" kit, which he fondly refers to as his buckets. Henry Christian's dirt-oozing slide guitar makes for a two-man-fueled boot stompin' hootenanny. (BB)

Idaho born, LA transplant Jeff Crosby writes songs about traveling. About the constant change that comes with touring the country in a crappy van. About leaving his family and friends behind to pursue a new life and his passion for music. This golden-locked denim jacket and a pearl snap cowboy shirt-wearing youngster is a born storyteller in the sweeping desert rock style of Laurel Canyon. (BB)

Thurs., April 24

9 pm. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. | $5.

Kendl Winter's work with Palmer T. Lee in The Lowest Pair hasn't changed the tenor of her compositions, just enabled a bit more focus on weaving that mysteriously quavering voice around the ruminations of a pair of banjos. In their duo, Winter and Lee appropriate traditional forms without hinting at modernity. And despite the pair's readily apparent talent, they're able to retain some of what made Appalachian folk songs so weird. A recent crop of traditional players in the States—right or wrong—have gone and refined some of the music's most grizzly features; and the show's openers, Dead Pigeons, are going to help show off that dichotomy.
