This Scottish 5-piece plays with a fevered passion so great that we couldn't bring ourselves to use a prerecorded track with their live show. Luckily we adjusted our in camera microphone as best we could prior to the show. The result is something we think gives justice to the band's live performance and really places the viewer in the audience. We Were Promised Jetpacks recently released a live album "E Rey: Live in Philadelphia" and are currently working on their 3rd studio effort, to be released tentatively in the fall of this year. The song captured in this video is "It's Thunder and It's Lightning" which can be found on their 2009 debut "These Four Walls" via Fat Cat Records.
Nightmare Air was hot off the heels of their debut LP "High in the Lasers" when they brought their wall of sound and assault on the senses to the historic Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland. Dave Dupuis (ex-Film School), Swaan Miller, and Jimmy Lucido were gracious enough to let us tag along and share their stage on this, our first, Bridge City B-Sides feature. Enjoy loudly!
Across the world from Australia, the Paper Kites embarked on their stateside tour in support of their debut LP "States". Mississippi Studios provided the perfect Portland, Oregon backdrop for their mellow yet lush instrumentals.
