~FLOWERS ON LOAN~
buds from LA
Flowers on Loan teams up San Francisco-based guitarist Owen Stewart-Robertson* with Los Angeles-based musicians Logan Hone^ and Jesse Nicholas Quebbeman-Turley^ for a 2 week tour across the Western US. In store is a series of kinetic, sing-song, unpredictable, vibrant, and imaginative performances that will form, crystallize, and shatter over the course of the tour.
^ Similar Fashion, Bright Whistles
a jazz/rock/americana band filtered through a cathartic and experimental lens, drawing on influences from West African music, ambient music, and free improv. Dueling electric guitars weave and intertwine with singing tenor saxophone, padded by undulating drums.

Paul Hiraga (canceled -lost voice)
Jordan O’Jordan will open the show!
Gallery 1412 (1412 18th Ave, Seattle WA 98122)
Saturday April 22, 7pm
Gallery 1412 is proud to welcome, from the Bay Area, Lavender and Marc Kate, along with Seattle’s own Rainbow Wolves. Friday, March 31, 8:00pm. $8 (tickets available)
Originally trained as a filmmaker and visual artist, San Francisco based producer and composer Marc Kate applies cinematic and conceptual approaches to music and audio production.
As a response to the tech culture assault on San Francisco (and the world), Kate takes up the tools of the trade — computers and synthesis — and slyly counter-attacks, imbuing humanity precisely where humanity is being evacuated. He creates a counterpoint to tech’s speed and greed — slow, immersive, materialist, drifting.
Certain recordings are meant to be absorbed as sensorial experiences – reminders that music is not only about hooks and melodies, but is also deeply grounded in texture, ambiance and raw emotion.This is the vision that drives the work of Portland-based composer and producer Lavender. His forward-thinking and ethereal songs echo the work of artists like Four Tet, Tim Hecker John Carpenter and Alessandro Cortini.
While Lavender’s studio work embodies the aesthetics of minimalism, the cinematic landscapes of post rock and the organic qualities of experimentalism, his intricate audio-visual performances can range from voluptuous soundscapes to dance-floor bangers with Italo Disco overtones guaranteed to drive crowds into extended celebratory nights.
“Rainbow Wolves (Randall Skrasek) has drummed and played keyboards in local psych-rock groups like Hypatia Lake, This Blinding Light, and Soft Hills… Rainbow Wolves is Skrasek’s outlet to indulge in his wildest keyboard fantasias… his methodical chord progressions and eerie timbres building exquisite tension and a sense of alien terrain.” (Dave Segal, The Stranger)
