A Friendly Last-Minute Reminder
Tonight, Cairo hosts three awesome acts: King Dude, Oak Rot, and Pilgrimage. Here’s what you need to know about ‘em:
King Dude is the solo project TJ Cowgill, front(mad)man of local death metal outfit Book of Black Earth. His King Dude sets are acoustic, but lyrically and spiritually heavy in their own way. You may know Cowgill from his occasional posts on the Stranger’s Line Out music blog, his stylish work for/at Actual Pain, or his gloomy, commanding performance at this year’s Expo 88 Music Festival.
Oak Rot are like-minded Pac NW post-metal soundscapers, and you can get a taste of their most recent cassette release (on sale tonight, probs) for free at this link. These dudes will be cruising up to Snoqualmie to scope out all the Twin Peaks filming locations tomorrow, so be sure to give them a proper sendoff tonight.
Pilgrimage is doomy metal from Portland expat Wolf Carr (We Safari, I Am the Internet), an old homie of the Cairo management with enough supernatural talent to scare any would-be warlocks into prolonged hibernation.
Tonight’s show starts at 8 PM, don’t be late.
