The On Land Festival takes place at Cafe Du Nord and the Swedish American Hall this weekend with three shows of psych, ambient, experimental and drone music. Curated by Root Strata, over twenty bands will be performing, including local highlights Tarentel, Barn Owl and Darwinsbitch and a performance by Portland’s Grouper, whose Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill (Type 2008) was simply terrific.
