Eclectronic superfudge with a live performance by Graintable

Tune into KBOO this Tuesday night 3/2/10 for a live performance by GRAINTABLE. Hes been lighting up the Westcoast with his blend of electronic superfudge. Catch up with him about the new Chip Chop release, a few Portland shows and find out what goes on in the mind of the sonic scientist. It all starts at 8pm on Portlands own 90.7fm KBOO.

Emerging on the experimental electronic music scene in 2008, Graintable is quickly making a name for himself with melodically mutated hip hop beats and bass heavy bangers. Busting out MPC-style sample bashing live sets, Graintable creates heavy grooves laden with high energy sound scapes that will keep repeating in your head for days. Graintable released his first track on RUNRIOT’s Motion Sickness compilation in ‘09 and is currently working on more synthed out brain stomping tracks to rip through portable music boxes and dance floors in 2010.

Arrington De Dionyso and Professor Gall

This week I'll be taking you back in time, all the way to February 19th, 2010 at the Artistery, an all-ages house basement and gallery venue here in Portland. The performance was in support of Arrington De Dionyso's new album release Malaiktat Dan Singa out on K Records.  Most folks interested in indie music have heard, or seen Old Time Relijun. Most folks interested in avant-garde and free jazz have witnessed Arrington perform solo. Now, if you are a fan of both -- as only a few are -- you will definitely dig a live performance of Malaiktat Dan Singa. Full of the brash punkish psychedelic energy of Old Time Relijun --but this is Arrington's band! -- he will sing as he desires, solo on the bass clarinet, and go as far in to a trance as he can.

Global Perspective: 33rd International Film Festival

Categories:

The benefits of seeing films from other countries are big. Not only can you take your experience to the bar, cafe, or water cooler, and brag on your worldliness, but there is an authentic experience happening in your heart when you open the mind to perspectives outside your own world-view. I personally only had time for two screenings and I chose them by country: Spain and Japan.

Shutter Island and Happy Tears, open today (Feb. 19) and a short rant about "indie movies"

Categories:

Shutter Island
Director: Martin Scorsese
With: Lenoardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams, Emily Mortimer, Patricia Clarkson, etc.

(This will be a no-spoiler review.)
I had the opportunity to interview Dennis Lehane when he toured through Portland for this book.  Lehane is one of the finest crime writers in the world, and his books are among those said to transcend genre.  Shutter Island was a gripping and disturbing book, with a peculiar hallucinatory quality.  So, I despaired that this could be well translated to the screen.
Enter Scorsese, who turns out to be up to the task, mostly.  In his defense, as though he needs me to defend him, no one could do this book compete justice.
