FesTIPval, part deux
Part Deux of the first ever FesTIPval wraps up with not 1, not 2, but 4 bands you should know if you want to stay cool. Fresh from their SoCal relocation and back by popular demand, Ocha La Rocha deliver the yearning, rootsy vocals of Johnny La Rocha and the six-string legerdemain of Taylor Crowell. From his voice to his songs to his intense presence, the night’s other Johnny — Johnny Houx — defies easy categorization. The next Woody Guthrie? Check him out before he blows up. And just added: a couple of Portland’s finest, The Shivas and their labelmates The Memories. Also back by popular demand, sunset on the Tip roof. Tuesday, 21 August 2012, 5:30 pm, RSVP.
