I’ve got a 2-year-old who doesn’t want to nap, so we’re gonna do this real simple like. Here’s what’s in your newspaper today:
— Local hip-hop ambassador Mosley Wotta has a new album out called “KinKonK” and he’s going to perform it tonight to celebrate. I talked to him about it and wrote this.
— In Feedback, I talk about my experience Saturday night at Sisters Folk Festival and why I think the lineup on the main stage was proof that the event is in good hands attached to forward-thinking minds.
— My colleague David Jasper interviewed one-man blues-grit band Scott H. Biram and found out how “junkies in Portland” spurred him to stop distorting his singing voice all the time.
Elsewhere: Shadows on Stars headlines Liquid Lounge tonight (stream their album here), Polecat plays twice in town next week and singer-songwriter Paul Eddy is back in town and gigging all over the place after a few years living in Texas. And more, of course.
