Blitzen Trapper with Candace
Portland’s beloved folky psychedelic five-piece has created alt-country harmonica- and banjo- strewn frolics and soulful slide guitar-imbued sounds over 18 years and 9 albums plus its Wild And Reckless month-long full-production theatre show which spawned 2017’s eponymous full- length. This tour celebrates their fourth album Furr, capturing where frontman Eric Earley found himself literally, metaphorically, geographically and existentially. 13 intriguing, spellbinding songs formed a magical, mythological and semi-fictional tribute to Portland. Blitzen Trapper has released five more achingly beautiful records in the decade since Furr’s release; this tour allows audience members to revel in the joy and sorrow of a forgotten time and place through wonderfully wistful songs.
Portland's Candace infuses their music with a sense of mystery and brooding atmosphere that includes psychedelic and shoegaze influences. Some songs bounce gleefully forward with a pop sensibility, while some keep a cool distance and move with a distinct language.
