This double-bill evening is a rare chance to see a couple of SXSW-bound acts. The evening will begin with Portland, Oregon-based East Forest- a unique electro-acoustic musical project that combines melodic-ambient soundscapes, ethereal vocals, and 100% original field recordings. The second act, Foxtails Brigade, hails from San Francisco, and puts an eerie, orchestral twist on cocktail lounge music. Admission: $12, ($8 for SCAC members.)
