RAW 2014 - Heavy Women
Reed College Chapel
3203 Southeast Woodstock Boulevard
March 9, 2014, 6 p.m.
This is a showcase of intensity meant to momentarily capture a cut of the most arresting live performers currently active in Portland underground music. These women are nodes on the map of a DIY a scene that is dense, ambiguous and creatively vibrant. Stylistic, technical, and virtuosic descriptors crystalize uniquely around each performer's idiosyncratic approach to improvisation, songwriting, their own voice, and their own gear. They are experienced participants: showgoers, players, and collaborators - each cultivating the apex of their respective energies.
