Songwriter Jonie Blinman here! The vision to bring my listening room concert series, Songwriters in the Round to Portland has captured the heart of the songwriting community here and I couldnt be more ecstatic to share these magical evenings to come with you! SITR is a place where songwriters can connect with their fans in an intimate listening room environment where the audience is passionate about hearing the craft, raw and unfiltered; often times a place where they'll be the first to hear new material.

Songwriters in the Round has always developed a fan base for the series itself, songwriters and fans returning show after show to discover artists theyve never seen while enjoying their favorites. SITR is a place where songwriters can connect with other local and national touring songwriters, build community, collaboration, touring connections, widen their fan bases and nurture lasting relationships.

See you at the Show!

The Breaking / Melville / Rum River Cult

may 30 2019 .jpg

THE BREAKING

Alt rock revivalists The Breaking stepped straight out of 1995. Mining the rich soundscape of mid-’90s guitar pop, the band draws inspiration from Failure, R.E.M., Soundgarden and early Radiohead, with brooding lyricism, anthemic choruses and infectious electric guitar hooks.

MELVILLE

Visceral, melody-driven American Rock n' Roll

Founded on openness and a collaborative spirit, there's a tangible longevity to Melville that begs the four-piece to explore and discover new layers to its sound.

RUM RIVER CULT

Sarah Parsons sheds the twee pop aesthetic of her former project The Lower 48 in favor of this swampy psych-rock-meets riot-grrrl power trio.

ECHOTEST
EchoTest is the bass-centric progressive rock brainchild of Julie Slick (Adrian Belew Power Trio) and Italian musician and producer Marco Machera. The sound they create is a reinvention of the role of solo electric bass and brilliantly displays their songwriting abilities. A captivating combination of loop music, ambient dreamy soundscapes and interlocking bass patterns, always melodic yet aggressive and edgy at times. EchoTest also features the extraordinary drumming of Alessandri Inolti.

DISTRICT 97
Chicago's District 97 is a prog powerhouse who describe themselves as playing "a no-holds barred style of Liquid Tension Experiment-inspired Instrumental Rock" with the addition of the dynamic and powerful vocals of Leslie Hunt. With numerous festival appearances to their credit, District 97 is on the cusp of releasing a new album for 2019.

THE MERCURY TREE:
Microtonal avant-rock featuring 17 notes to the octave, from their new 2019 album, Spidermilk.

FLIGHT-Beyond The Valley Of The BASS w/Dj Denise (SF)

flight 2 .jpg

Special guest DJ Denise (SF) Takes us on a journey this month beyond the valley of the bass.

DJ Denise is no stranger to electronic music. From her meteoric rise in the San Francisco underground scene in the late-1990s under the guise DJ D, to now in her 20th year of DJing, Denise has played thousands of events and at most venues in San Francisco. She has traveled from Miami to Hawaii and everywhere in between, spreading her unique energy and style. Her nonchalant fader flicks and mixer tricks combined with seemingly effortless beatmatching skills are intriguing to many trainspotting fans.

Denise also runs Mizumo Music, a quality label for house music. This Bay Area label boasts over 160 releases from local and international artists alike. Her music productions have been licensed by well-respected artists and labels including Ministry of Sound, DJ Shortee, Simply Jeff and Epiphyte Record’s “LovEvolution,” the official 2009 CD for San Francisco’s street festival modeled after Germany’s infamous Love Parade.

In 2013, Denise was hand-picked by Insomniac's Discovery Project to perform at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, one of the largest festivals in the U.S. Despite her lengthy curriculum vitae, her favorite annual gig remains in the heart of San Francisco during Pride, where both old and new friends unite for an afternoon of dancing under the sun. When she's not DJing, you can find Denise working at an Emergency Department in Oakland, CA. It is evident that her mission in life is to save lives, both on and off the dance floor.
