Led by drummer Papi Fimbres (Portland’s busiest musician), Orquestra Pacifico Tropical (OPT) includes members of Máscaras, Dreckig, Bitch’n, And And And, Eagle Sun King, Point Juncture WA, Modernstate, Jippedo, and Quiet Countries. Last year the 11-piece band released El Tren to positive reception. Having become famous (at least locally) for their lively performances that get everybody on their feet, OPT is now one of the hottest tickets in town. Also on the bill is soul/hip-hop fusion band Tribe Mars, whose sizeable lineup includes an MC, three vocalists, a drummer, keyboardist, guitarist, bassist, and a saxophonist. The group came into their own with the addition of vocalist Vaughn Kimmons and Andre Burgos on keys, and are now one of the town’s greatest treasures. Their impressive self-titled debut from 2018 plays around at the intersection of psychedelic soul, hip-hop, and jazz. Songs like the subdued “Sun Raisin,” or the funkified “Best Fishes” are just two highlights from the band’s beautifully complex catalog.
