The Collective Presents Round Three of The Best of the New
Surely, I’m not the only person who can’t believe 2011 is already halfway over and suddenly its June or that it’s time for the third round of The Collective’s Best of the New. If you’re not familiar with the Best of the New, it’s a free night curated by Artist Home Booking, The Collective and Sound on the Sound and it’s all about highlighting local musicians we believe in with our whole hearts and who we think you should know about right now. At the first showcases we were proud to present performers like Lemolo, Bryan John Appleby, Youth Rescue Mission, Land of Pines, Rockwell Powers and The Solvents.
And just like those previous showcases, we think you’ll be hearing a lot more from the artists we’re presenting tomorrow night:
At Columbia City Theater – FREE / 8pm
We’ve already told you all about the dusty electric charms of singer-songwriter Stephen Nielsen a stand out from Sunday nights at Conor Byrne and Tuesday nights all over town. Moya is a brand new local indie rock band whose polished sound belies the fact tomorrow will be just their second show. Hannalee is SHIM’s Michael Harley singing like you’ve never seen before, harmonizing on sweet, traditional folk songs with his wife and Fidelia Schoolcraft. And headlining the evening will be Fort Union, the new project from Jace Krause and Jake Rohr of Friday Mile, Jake Hemming of Big Sur and other talented friends.
Here’s a look or a listen to all four acts:
