Tegan and Sara concert at Britt Festivals in Jacksonville Oregon

Concert Review: An Evening At Britt With Tegan & Sara

(Written by John Weirick) The crowd stirred with restless energy on Friday, August 30th, as most do before a performance at Britt Festivals. The venue’s setting in small, historic Jacksonville, Oregon provides a welcoming and scenic forested atmosphere, perhaps even a much-needed peaceful location to escape the business and noise of larger cities…

Ivory Harp’s Fan Experience: Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters

(Written by Ryan Cox) Originally, I was asked to review Robert Plant’s latest musical venture aptly dubbed Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters at Southern Oregon’s Britt Festival. After receiving word that a ticket had been purchased for me by Ivory Harp, I began to ponder the idea of a “Fan Experience” page on the website. Being a child of the 80’s, I don’t possess an ample supply of knowledge on the monumental life and musical majesty of Robert Plant. However, I did know the perfect candidate for a fan experience article on Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, and that was my Mother, Sheree Cox.

Live at the Britt: Jeff Bridges and the Abiders

“Sometimes there’s a man… I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? Sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here – the Dude from Los Angeles. Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude. The Dude, from Los Angeles…”

The Seaons' SUNGUN

Album Review: The Seaons’ “S U N G U N” by Hunter Moore

(Written by Hunter Moore) When 21-year-old vocalist, pianist, and songwriter Sean Siders croons, “No more bottom of the food chain…” on “Headstrong,” one of the catchy, sweet tracks from the Seaons’ self-released, full-length debut, the listener might be inclined to agree with Siders’ forward-thinking, optimistic lyrics. He’s a young man who often presents his ideas in the affirmative; he seems to believe in the power of identity and pure love. Who could argue with that?

Ivory Harp presents an interview with Arlo Brooks

An interview with Arlo Brooks (Ashland Experimental)

(Written by Jesse Eells-Adams) I met up with Arlo Brooks on a sunny day in Ashland, Oregon, while he was working at the Video Explorer movie rental. He had just released his newest solo album Being Watched onto Whale Trap Records the day before, on 4/20. We initially talked as he was renting out movies to customers, observing customers, and killing rogue flies in the store. Brooks was born and raised in Pasadena, California, and for reasons unknown, took it upon himself to terrorize Ashland with his own strange brand of weirdness since 2008.

Concert Review: Aesop Rock in Ashland, Oregon

(Written by Jacob Sykes) I didn’t exactly know what to expect when I first walked into the Historic Ashland Armory on Tuesday. I first noticed that they had put down two giant projector screens and were projecting interesting imagery. The place was pretty empty when I first got there, but as I waited for the music to began, more and more people began to file in. I have been a huge fan of Busdriver for quite sometime, and Aesop Rock was part of my childhood, os needless to say I was very excited.
