Hillstomp w/ Weather Machine

 TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!

 

 

Hillstomp sounds like a boom box blasting from a shopping cart. Two madmen have strapped an engine to the cart and it’s too big and running too hot. They've got a banjo and a megaphone, a
washboard and a kick drum. They've stocked the cart with guitars, buckets, car parts, and microphones and they are hurtling towards a blown out bridge while the bad front wheel flaps manically. The fools
think they can jump the bridge and land safely on the other side. They are very wrong but no one has told them because...well, they just seem so happy. And there you are, bouncing alongside them and deep down you hope they make it. God damn if it isn’t beautiful.

On April Fools Day 2013, Portland-based project The Weather Machine released their first full-length album after a blustery winter of recording on the Oregon Coast. With its strong ties to the region, the band roots itself firmly in a Pacific Northwest folk aesthetic, but holds on tight to a hard-hitting love for alt-rock. The result is wonderfully hard to categorize – The Weather Machine has been compared to everything from The Kinks and Josh Ritter to Hey Marseilles and Cake
