About the bands:

We surely don’t need to introduce John Vanderslice, who will be joined by Dead Oceans labelmates Nurses, whose Apple’s Acre Pitchfork described as “homemade in the best possible way. It is a quality that speaks to not only the intimacy of the recording, but also the confidence and comfort that Nurses now have in their delicately shambolic sound.” Rounding out the bill are SF’s Honeycomb, whose Noise Pop show doubles as the release party for their first EP, and local acapella choir Conspiracy of Venus.

Thao Nguyen‘s ascent to the top of the indie singer-songwriter pyramid continues with a very special collaborative performance with the similarly superb Mirah. Joining the ladies are Portland’s Horse Feathers, who will be releasing their third album of minimalist Americana on Kill Rock Stars in April. Says Paste Magazine: “Horse Feathers constructs music out of fragile whispers and half-remembered dreams, eagerly filling in the gaps between Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine on the American indie-folk continuum.” Locals Dave Smallen and Carletta Sue Kay round out the bill.
