Who are Purple & Green?
Saturday, February 5th, Cairo's ultra-psychedelic weekend continues (on the heels of the prior night's mind-opening High Wolf show hosted by Portable Shrines) with a stellar 4-band bill featuring locals Punishment (aka S. Funkee), Brain Fruit, U.S.F., and Portland mega-jammer Adam Forkner/White Rainbow's latest project, Purple & Green.
A collaboration between Forkner and soul singer Justin Green, Purple & Green resuscitate old-school R&B, hip-hop, and funk stylings with uncanny precision, delivering them in a typically off-kilter, consciousness-altering Forkner style. One of their tracks, "Right Here," was recently shared on Pitchfork's forkast and elsewhere on the net, and their myspace has a bevy of other solid tracks (we recommend the three-way oddity "Tell Me," which boasts the weirdest Bradford Cox cameo you'll ever hear). Have a listen, start getting psyched for Saturday's show, and don't forget to RSVP on facebook.
