Impuritan - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Impuritan
Impuritan - an experimental rock three-piece from San Francisco - consists of Alex Eliopoulos (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), David Molina (guitar/bass/keys/electronics/vocals), and Pepe Abad (drums/percussion). Formed in 2011 by Alex as a solo recording project, the lineup soon bloomed into a musical collective.

Not your typical San Francisco band, its members hail from Greece, El Salvador, and Peru. The music's experimental nature allows for both duo and trio performances by combining live instrumentation with live loops & samples to create lush walls of sound.
Space Waves - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Space Waves
You Can Ride A Beam Of Light Like A Musical Strum is the second full-length album from Space Waves (5th overall), to be released in 2013. The core duo of Sarah and Kelley Bourland are joined by Mark Loftin (Foxtail Somersault, Morning Spy, Shawerma) on drums for this album. Drums, bass, and initial guitar tracks were all recorded live by Kelley over a weekend, with additional guitar, vocals, flute and tenor steel pan added later. In this spirit of capturing a live performance, two previously released songs, "Shadowtree" and "In the Shadows," were re-recorded for this album. The title of the album was received during a communication with Sarah's childhood cat through pet psychic Laura Stinchfield on her radio show.
Mixed by the legendery Larry Crane, Space Waves' third album finds the Portland shoegazers at their creative peak. Ethereal, reverb drenched soundscapes supply the backdrop for the album's heady expanse of 60's-inspired psychedlia ("Turns), gritty rockers ("Stealin' Time"), haunting explorations ("Eat the Shadows") and driving intensity ("In The Shadows").
Founders Kelley and Sarah Bourland have proven to be a formidable shoegaze team, and in addition to playing many recent shows up and down the West Coast, toured the Midwest last summer
Old Toy Trains - (Set time: 11:00 PM)

Also digitally via Planting Seeds Records.
