The Best Looking Thing on the Line-Up For Cairo's Vibrations Fest Tomorrow: OC Notes & White Rainbow"/>
Set times just announced here, and no offense to Erin's preview--which deservedly highlights Erik Blood, Truckasauras' "Dantasia," and others, and rightly points out that this whole thing is a stacked bill with basically no slack--BUT! I fear she may be overlooking what may be the best item on the line-up for Cairo's free, all-day-long Vibrations Festival tomorrow at Volunteer Park (assuming it's not actually Rebecca Brown): "OC Notes & White Rainbow"! This is going to be a very #rare #pizza-based collaborative set, and you do not want to miss it. Misters Notes and Rainbow are respectively some of Seattle and Portland's weirdest, headiest beat-makers, with tastes that range from electro-funk to ambient drone to jazz to hip hop to even dustier corners of the proverbial/celestial record store.
Witness, if you will, White Rainbow's seemingly tossed-off, two-track 30-minute synth-funk jam Trick Shot. Or, say, OC Notes' Wiz-flipping suite Emerald City Sequence. Will this be a one-off efflorescence for you to tell your kids about? Or the start of a long, mutually beneficial beat friendship? Only time will tell.
(PS. I am on a train, and the wi-fi's too slow to embed any pictures or media. Imagine some guys' faces and an mp3 player up there before where the words start or whatever.)**
