Indie Rock Band Whitney Performs at the Bijou Theatre May 18th at 8pm!

Indie rock band ‘Whitney’ takes the Bijou Theatre Stage, May 18th at 8pm!
Whitney make casually melancholic music that combines the wounded drawl of Townes Van Zandt, the rambunctious energy of Jim Ford, the stoned affability of Bobby Charles, the American otherworldliness of The Band, and the slack groove of early Pavement.

Their debut, Light Upon the Lake, is due in June on Secretly Canadian, and it marks the culmination of a short, but incredibly intense, creative period for the band. To say that Whitney is more than the sum of its parts would be a criminal understatement. Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich, the band itself is something bigger, something visionary, something neither of them could have accomplished alone.

Nahko and Medicine for The People @ Bijou Theatre July 25th!

Nahko and Medicine for The People hit the Bijou Theatre stage Tuesday, July 25th at 8pm!

Nahko and Medicine for The People Website and Facebook.
“Nahkois not one of them. And that calling and mission has never been clearer than it is on Nahko and Medicine for the People‘s third full-length album, HOKA(SideOneDummy Records).

On HOKA, Nahko‘s voice is strong. His mission is clear. The mandate has been thrown down. ”Hoka is a Lakota word, an indigenous tribe from the Great Plains, it is a call to action. It‘s what Crazy Horse would say when he went into battle, ’Hoka, hey!‘ My call is to put action to the words that I speak and the lyrics I sing. Not justto talk, but to do,“ says Oregon-born singer/songwriter Nahko, who is of Puerto Rican, Native American (Apache), and Filipino descent.

“This is the soundtrack of the movement for a better planet,“ he continues. ”I want to challenge myself and others to make a change.“ ”Hoka,“ which is the intro to the first track, “Directions,“ is one of the album‘s many song intros used as a way to round out the storytelling on the tracks. ”On this intro, my uncles are chanting the lyrics to ’Directions‘ in Lakota, and the three female voices include a clairvoyant, an astrologer, and a friend who all had important messages for me that are a big part of my story,“ he explains.

Critics have praised the group‘s worldly blend of rock, hiphop, and altfolk. OC Weekly called the group which also includes Chase Makai (lead guitar), Justin Chittams (drums), Pato (bass and kora),Tim Snider (violin) and Max Ribner (horns), ”empowering“ and ”powerful. ”The Huffington Post called […]
