Portland trio Modern Kin is still a new band, playing their first shows barely a year ago, and landing a spot on Willamette Week‘s Best New Band poll last month. But the band’s members — guitarist and singer Drew Grow, bassist Kris Doty, and drummer Jeremiah Hayden — had played together since 2007 in Drew Grow & The Pastors Wives before deciding to start a new group with a new sound. In this new incarnation, Modern Kin plays with a primal rattle and shake that makes it hard to take your eyes off them. They headlined our Stagepass concert in May at Mississippi Studios.
Modern Kin plays Music Fest NW on Sunday August 17th.
Our next Stagepass concert is July 12th with Portland band Run on Sentence and Seattle artist Star Anna. Get the schedule of shows, ticket info and more here.

audio mix Steven Kray; recording Graham Nystrom; director Matthew Thomas Ross; videographers Nate Sjol, Jarratt Taylor, Ben Trimbo and Gary McLeod; lighting Brysen Uhalde; and executive producer David Christensen.
