Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.

Husbandry drops new EP, 12/1 and plays Brooklyn Bazaar tonight 11/30

Husbandry is the name given for mankind's domestication of plants and animals, but make no mistake--there is hardly anything tame about the thundering NYC heavy band who takes the same name. The feral four-piece lays down surprisingly melodic post-hardcore tracks with deliciously jagged edges. Following up 2016's LP, Fera, the band is slated to release Bad Weeds Never Die, an EP that promises soaring vocals and angular riffage delivered with the effortless skill and aplomb the band has become known for.  Keep your eyes peeled for the new record hitting the digital realm tomorrow, but if you're frothing over the idea of scoring the new tracks a day early, catch the band tonight (11.30) at Brooklyn Bazaar for their album release show. Check out the video for their new single Elder Spencer Deery streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

A little relief for NorCal tonight

Northwest locals were devastated when fires took over the Columbia River Gorge over the summer. Seeing destruction of that magnitude happen to your hometown is simultaneously saddening and numbing, but does sort of strengthen the community. Bearing in mind that many of us moved here from another place anyway, it makes sense that we'd do what we can for those who've just experienced this in Northern California.

Last month Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Butte and Solano counties were hit with a series of 21 wildfires that devastated wine country and surrounding NorCal terrain. This slew of fires included one of the most destructive in California wildfire history, the Tubbs Fire, so there's much about the area that needs to be rebuilt.

A few Portland bands are getting together shortly to help raise some funds, with some raffles taking place in-between sets. A few of the musicians playing tonight have called California (but more specifically, Northern California) their home at one point in time, so this benefit show is a bit more personal. Enjoy some harsh hardcore punk from Worws, Phantom Family and Dead Tropics, along with a bit of a bluegrass twang from the Lonesome Valley Pussyfooters. Art and other fun things from Green Noise Records, Scapegoat Tattoo, Grizzly Tattoo, Oddball Tattoo and Josh McQuary will be raffled away betwixt the bands, and all proceeds will be given to UndocuFund. Seeing as tons of undocumented families and workers have been affected by the fires and won't be receiving federal aid, they are some of the most vulnerable beings in cases like these. 

Music for tonight's NorCal relief benefit at Tonic Lounge starts at 9pm. Entry is $8 with larger donations being accepted, with raffle tickets running one for $3 or two for $5.

New Ronnie Vega EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Lost Vega Vol. 1 is the new EP from Ronnie Vega. It unifies the grimy immediacy of punk and hip-hop, two genres that have historically crossed paths. Echoing the daily grind, these tracks shake with a sense of focused desire and desperation. Vega & Co. are slated to perform at LAVA Space this Wednesday, November 8, as part of a lineup that also includes Todd Killingz, Cult Objects, and Ohioans Vacation.

New Hound LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Born Under 76, the new LP from the hard-rockin' trio of Hound, was recently released, with Let's Pretend Records handling vinyl and cassette formats, while CDs are available via SRA Records. Oozing an inherent vocal-commanding, riff-galvanizing, classically heavy sound, a loose, energetic clarity resounds. Saturated in fuzz and quaking backend, the band finds a manner to channel its, at times, psych-inflected, adrenaline-laced tone, while maintaining a tank full of fun. That dynamic groove/riff combo seeps into your skull, and won’t let go.
