Simply put, Kelli Schaefer is one of the Northwest's best kept secrets. Shifting between sometimes soft and sparse sounds to driving and rhythmically frenetic, infectious textures, all of it is heart-scorching and, often, transcendent. Check out this intimate live video for "Black Dog," or better yet, come to Marmoset's Hott Summer Nights MusicFest Party on September 9th, 2012 at Rontoms. Kelli plays at 9pm on the big stage. Her live set is loud and brutal and wonderful and cutting..all at the same time. It's an honor to have Kelli on the Marmoset roster.

Based in the deserty landscapes of Utah, The Mighty Sequoyah is quite the hidden gem. They released their sophomore album "Sunken Houses" earlier this summer showcasing five part harmonies and lovely blend of upbeat tunes and heartfelt nostalgia. Marmoset is proud to have them on our roster. Check out/download "Enchanters" by The Mighty Sequoyah.
You can skip out on that Twin Peaks party you had planned this Wednesday... you can catch up later. Instead, head on over to the Someday Lounge to see our bud Kris Orlowski play with Glassbones, Hive Mind, and De La Warr. Kris's songwriting is uniquely personal, even if you're a first time listener. His brand of folk-rock is as infectious the rash I can't seem to shake on the inside of my thigh. I'm not lying, this thing is infectious - oh man. But enough about me... The show starts at 9pm and the cover charge is $8 at the door. Someday Lounge is located off the Max line in Chinatown at 125 NW 5th Avenue, Portland Oregon.
We'll see you there!
The sweet sounds of Teemster are reminiscent of sun-soaked summer days. By combining stripped-down vocals and bare-bones guitar, David Guilick creates music that is equally as dreamlike as it is enthralling.
