Live Performance

Drinking from Puddles on 07/13/11

Air date: 
Wed, 07/13/2011 - 8:00pm - 11:00pm
Short Description: 
Jon Anderson (formerly of Yes) performs on Drinking From Puddles !!

Sometimes in music-journalism the words icon and iconic get employed pretty liberally. But when you’ve had a 40 plus year-long recording career, with audio documents released in six different decades, and have sold roughly 38 million records, with songs played on hundreds and hundreds of radio stations on a daily basis…then it’s well deserved. Jon Anderson, most notably the former vocalist, lyricist and songwriter of progressive rock pioneers Yes, is on a solo acoustic tour. It’s an honor to welcome him to Drinking From Puddles for a few tunes and some chat on the eve of his scheduled stop in Portland Thursday night July 14th at the Aladdin Theater. (!!!)

Live on Drinking From Puddles for 06/22/11 it's Point Juncture, Wa. !!

"Don’t let the name fool you, Point Juncture, WA actually hail from (where else?) Portland, OR. That said it isn’t really important where they are from, but rather where they are going, and, with the release of Handsome Orders, the band’s general trajectory should be steadily up. Point Juncture, WA is one of those bands who all at once remind you of several different bands and yet have their own distinct sound that makes them hard to compare to anyone else... They are all at once familiar and yet totally new. The band describes themselves as “Quiet, then real loud, then quiet again,” which sums them up pretty succinctly."--Mike Beebe/The Owl Magazine
