Osprey Flies the Nest 

This Eugene band plays charming folk rock with real touching lyrics about yoga, community, friendship and compassion! Some songs were just Osprey and their drum, others were a full band with guitar bass and keys. They aren’t sure about their name yet, so it might change. You can hear some of the songs here.

PALEONS

Paleons play huge thundering spacey post rock! Shimmering, shattering, convalescing, coalescing, brobdignian riffs! They have an analog synth player! I often can’t hear what he’s doing under the volume of the cymbals and the huge guitar amps but… the gear is cool.

Betty and the Babes

What a delight to catch Bettreena Jaeger’s band: they released recordings as “Betty and the Boy” but the other night at Old Nick’s it was Betty and the Babes.

Her voice sometimes could remind someone of Joanna Newsome and Beth Gibbons. There are beautiful arrangements of the strings played by Michelle and Nanci. Wearing costumes as ghouls made it especially fun for me to draw. I was entranced by the music and delighted by the “Nightmare Before Christmas” cover, “Sally’s Song.” Cool Inks, and fun to use grey as a color.

As a fun bonus, I was playing with an app that lets me make kaleidoscopes out of my drawings đŸ™‚

Trek theatre Pon Farr

Local Trekkies put on an original series episode “Amok Time” with original songs by Dr. Jason Heald. These are drawings I made of the cast and crew.

They let me open the show, performing my Star Trek rap and playing the theremin for the audience. They also had local bell dancer sarina Dorie as an Orion slave girl!

And here are some photos of the production. It really was a great show!

Sadiqua Iman

Sadiqua is a sex therapist, bulesque dancer performance artist I saw at Bumbershoot! Her show was compelling, about arousal and gender fluidity, with the occasional audience interaction. It was amazing hearing her sing the children’s songs she learned on the playground growing up in Seattle. They were highly sexualized. At the beginning of her show she was wearing a goatee, and by the end she had shed her clothes. She is on twitter!
