Failure / Swervedriver

McMenamins Crystal Ballroom 1332 W. Burnside St., Portland, OR 97209
Failure: Unbound to any generation, scene or movement, Failure build upon an enduring catalog of inventive, inimitable and intriguing albums, as relevant today as they will be tomorrow.
Swervedriver: Just as there was never any thought of I Wasn't Born To Lose You being a last hurrah for old time's sake, Future Ruins presents a band moving with real time/real life vitality. It showcases new tricks and classic hallmarks: pop songs which don't have choruses, like "Mary Winter"; odd arrangements and weird contrasts, like "Spiked Flower"'s rock'n'roll grind breaking out to acknowledge English landscape painter John Constable; and a lyric that references Echo & The Bunnymen.
