Concert: Wooden Shjips
March 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm€24,10
The ghostly vocals of Wooden Shjips, obscured by dense layers of instruments surrounding them are alluring with their airy mystery. Psychedelia, primitive and minimalist rock, romanticism, mythology and the art and mastery of Ripley Johnson (guitar and vocals), Dusty Jermier (bass), Nash Whalen (organ), and Omar Ahsanuddin (drums).
Since 2006, the band had released 5 albums and a bunch of EPs. Their last album, V, is an antidote to the pervasive anxiety both political and natural.
As Ripley tells it, “We had huge forest fires just outside of Portland and there was intense haze and layers of ash in the city. I was sitting on my porch every evening, watching ash fall down like snow, the sky looking like it was on fire. It was an apocalyptic feeling. Summer in Portland is usually really chill and beautiful, and we were working on a ‘summer record,’ but the outside world kept intruding on my headspace.” Ladies and gentlemen welcome to another dimension!
