“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you’ll be a mile away and have his shoes. “
An unknown wise man said that, and since 2007 the good people at Crappy Indie Music: The Blog have been… um… stealing your shoes. Now is the time for them to show off, and three musical projects from our bloggers will be rocking The Old Church on September 23rd.
Doctor Something and the Pipin’ Hot Love Engines, post electric/folk about science (Dr. Something) http://www.myspace.com/drsomething
Evil Doer, heavy metal party trio (saintgoldie aka Goldie Davich)http://www.myspace.com/evildoerpdx
Goddammit One Of Us Will Be Drunk, acoustic dirty duo from Coeur Machant(Jess Gulbranson ) http://www.last.fm/music/Coeur+Machant
followed by a very special Crappy Indie Music Bloggers supergroup!
A few words on the venue:
The Old Church is a cute church — not overly ornate or fancy. The stained glass is simple. The first time I walked in I felt a sense of reverence, which was tempered quickly enough with the overwhelming and exciting feeling of the historic value and importance of this Portland landmark.
I love to walk around and whistle. The reverb in the empty rooms is intoxicating, so full-sounding. I blow the air into a giant set of lungs, filling it up with little breaths that turn into mighty ‘ooooos.’ I am excited to take an old church and turn it into a place to worship new music. A classical setting for contemporary stuff. Irreverent, modern and fun music and performances against the back drop of a pipe organ. The idea of sitting down at an early show, in a building whose design supports good sound (it’s a giant amp), is appealing not just to me but everyone I’ve talked to about this project. I can’t imagine a better place to book shows. Goldie Presents is thrilled to open the doors to new artists and a new generation of worshippers of Portland’s creative output. -Goldie Presents
