Portland blog and zine Witch Haus (co-edited by Mercury Music Editor Ciara Dolan) has put together a fantastic lineup for this show. Twelve Gardens makes shimmery, gritty garage rock that should be played softly while driving late at night, with rhythms as hypnotic as the repetition of streetlights you'd be gliding under. Turtlenecked is one man's special orchestral power-pop vision—it's wild weirdness that seems like it shouldn't be as wonderfully catchy as it is. Boreen is the lushest of bedroom pop; it feels like someone murmuring their own sweetly melancholic memories to you as you're falling asleep, so the next morning you believe they're your own. Seattle five-piece Great Grandpa makes roiling rock that's heavy, winding, and warm. Pulling from influences like Pavement and Speedy Ortiz, Great Grandpa's music really hits the spot, and often skewers it. FIONA GABRIELLE WOODMAN
