New Track: "Be Good" - Young Pilgrims

"This song took a lot to happen; I hope you get something out of it." Young Pilgrims lay it all on the line in their latest single, "Be Good". Lost love combined with longing and regret is a theme old as time yet the universal feelings shared continue to inspire. Share it with someone you love(d).

   

Beat the Heat with a Little Bit of Intimacy

We're not talking about sexual intimacy here, though by all means get freaky. But tonight, a nice relaxing night will hit Bunk Bar with acoustic force. 

Nick Delffs translated his mammoth aptitude for guitar playing and songwriting from his established Shakey Hands project to his work with Tiburones, but more relevantly, in his solo effort Death Songs. His rich vocal quality adds dimension to his production, and also helps keep his "one man on stage" live performances intriguing. Expect this performance to include a mixture of not yet released material as well as favorites from his vast discography.

Leaving his usual post as the frontman of the more heavier rock band And And And, Nathan Baumgartner will be sharing some of the band's past, present and future songs in their original form, as they all begin acoustically during the writing process. Baumgartner's knack for creating songs of emotional turmoil will only be showcased more when backed by the personal playing of them on an acoustic guitar.

Joining Delffs and Baumgartner will be Christopher Francis and his soul-infused folk, swaddled by his crooning, husky voice. You might recognize him from playing with the Portland Cello Project, but you'll definitely remember him for his solo efforts.

Tickets to tonight's show are only $5, with music starting at 9 pm.
