Last week’s GO! Magazine didn’t have nearly enough coverage of tonight’s Low Hums / Rural Demons show at Volcanic Theatre Pub. So I will endeavor to make up for that here.
Low Hums are a Seattle-based band (led by Jonas Haskins, formerly of the band Earth) that specializes in creating not only music, but moods, especially the kind of mood that happens when you’re flat on your back in the desert, baked by the sun (or whatever) and staring up at stars pinpricking a dusky sky. This is a twangy trance music for deteriorating dunes, expansive adobe-drones to soundtrack your cosmic wanderings; Central Oregonians, think of it as buzzy juniper jams designed to enhance a leisurely trip through the Badlands.
Low Hums is a band that vibes.
Tonight, they’ll bring those vibes to Bend, where the opening act — local slowcore doom-roots collective Rural Demons — could not be a more perfect pairing.
Here’s Low Hums’ self-titled full-length, which came out last year. Click ‘n’ bliss:
Low Hums and Rural Demons play at 9 tonight, with doors opening at 8 p.m., at Volcanic Theatre Pub (70 N.W. Century Drive, Bend). It’s free to attend.
