Hillstomp and World’s Finest – Nov 5
Portland Oregon junkbox blues duo HILLSTOMP is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp. North Mississippi trance blues, a bit of Appalachia, and a dash of punkabilly come clanging and tumbling from assorted buckets, cans and BBQ lids, all drenched in rambunctious slide guitar. Somehow it works. Despite their homemade instruments and novel approach, Hillstomp is no novelty act.Hillstomp’s memorable live performances tap into a magic that cannot be rehearsed, converting outlaws and traditionalists alike from skeptics into preachers.
World’s Finest is a five piece band from Portland, OR who have branded themselves as Dance Floor Instigators. Since their inception as an acoustic trio in 2011, the band has gained members, added amplifiers, and have grown into a touring force on the West Coast festival scene and beyond.
