The Fourth Wall
The Fourth Wall is a rock band originally from Hawai’i consisting of members Stephen Agustin, Kasey Shun, Chris Lau, and Andrew White. Originally a solo project, Agustin wrote and recorded alone in his home for a year and a half, following the break-up of his previous band, Our Distance (who had been the support act for the Kooks in 2008 and Of Montreal in 2009). These demo recordings were kept relatively secret, being handed out only to a few close friends. With growing encouragement from these friends, Stephen sought to form a band in order to perform these songs live. In the fall of 2010, guitarist Kasey Shun, Bassist Paul Brittain, and drummer Kimo Short joined Stephen to form The Fourth Wall. Their style is primarily lyrically driven and draws from a wide range of musical influences including Neil Young, The Band, My Bloody Valentine, and Sonic Youth.
Split between Midwestern and West Coast roots, The Adnas are a five piece Rock n Roll band looking to find an earnest expression of their varied backgrounds. Loud guitars and honest vocals underpin a sound representative of five guys making music together for fun.
The unmistakable tones of a Juno 106, both expansive and nostalgic, give way to the layered textures and bittersweet vocals that define Portland newcomers Starover Blue and their sophomore LP, Spacegeist. After meeting in the music department at San Jose State nearly a decade ago, founding members Kendall Sallay and Dirk Milotz began their musical partnership and quickly became inseparable. Live, they pull from a multi-faceted discography, creating sets that compliment a spectrum of bands, from mathy indie rock groups like The Velvet Teen, to delicate, haunting dream pop acts like Orenda Fink. Their search for a music community more aligned with their somber-yet-pop-driven aesthetic has taken them from San Jose, CA to Portland, where they now live.
