A MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WARM-UP PARTY
EOFF announced it’s 2014 Dates – February 20-22, 2014 – but before we can savor another year of great film and music in downtown LG we need to assist the organization in growing it’s pocket book to bring about a 5th annual celebration that continues to astound.
Portland, Oregon’s AU and ETERNAL TAPESTRY will cozy up with La Grande’s Catskills on Thursday, May 23rd at The Art Center at the Old Library to present a powerhouse evening of edgy rock, experimental psychedelia, and hyper-attentive, graceful, and often fierce instrumentation of sonic and psychological terrain. The trio of cutting edge NW musicians will be heading to the Tumbleweeds of Idaho to converge with a number of other stellar musicians.
The event cost is $5.00 at the door. (Eastern Oregon Film Festival members are admitted free). Support our growing film and music festival by experiencing this evening of cutting edge northwest centric music.
ABOUT THE BANDS
AU’s third album, Both Lights, is a recurring dream. Eleven songs made by the Portland, Oregon-based duo Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka, it’s a story of Time.
In its eleven songs, Both Lights constructs new sonic and psychological terrain for the listener. It unfolds like a story, both in its hyper-attentive, graceful, and often fierce instrumentation — the language of Wyland and Valatka — and in its heated and naked emotion. “This is all inner struggle, inner growth, inner seeking,” said Wyland. Set to music, life sounds like AU.

After the dark conceptual ambience of Beyond the 4th Door, the members of Eternal Tapestry decided the time was right to do an album embracing their live show – blistering psych rock filled with lyrical guitar soloing and a caveman approach to rhythm, an oddly euphoric state where melancholia is blasted by ecstatic noise.
“Committed psych, folk, and early metal music crate diggers could probably reference a vast and rich collection of LPs from the ’60s and ’70s that Eternal Tapestry’s work fits nicely alongside.” — Filter Magazine
