And now we come to the end of the summer festival season. As the air begins to cool let us take just a moment to savor a few of the golden live music moments that shook the city this past week: At Marmoset's second Hott Summer Nights party at Rontom's on Sunday, we featured 14 bands and 4 DJ's throughout the day and long into the night. Some of the many highlights were Houndstooth1939 Ensemble, Sean Flinn and the Royal WeKelli SchaeferLost Lander and Pure Bathing Culture. The music was awesome, the beer was cheap and plentiful, and the bands were happy.

Special thanks from Marmoset to Rontom's for hosting, and to co-sponsor Eleven PDX Magazine, and to our dear friends at Beacon Sound, and Factory North who helped out too. Fresh eats and bevvies came from Upright Brewing, Burnside Brewing, Ninkasi Brewing, Sizzle Pie, Stumptown Coffee, Violetta Food Truck, and The Ice Cream Man. And many thanks to our DJ's Ryan Blornstad, JT Griffith, Boy Eats Drum Machine, and DJ Versus Nature. (Gasp)

THIS SUNDAY: Marmoset's Hott Summer Nights Party Featuring Lost Lander at Rontoms

Over here at Marmoset Headquarters we're gearing up for Hott Summer Nights 2.0 this Sunday, September 9th at Rontoms...our little unofficial MusicFest party, sorta wrapping up the fun and festivities of MusicFest weekend. We've got a bunch of bands, artists, and DJ's playing on multiple stages all day and all night, starting at 2 pm and going until midnight. Mix that up with dollar beers and cheap food and you know it's gonna be a good one. The spookily ambient and richly emotive indie pop of Lost Lander at 4:30pm will most definitely be one of the high points. Make sure to come by early so you don't miss the Lost Lander set. Until then check out Lost Lander's Matt Sheehy on an Into the Woods "Don't Quit Your Day Job" special.

 

Kelli Schaefer will rip out your heart...and then put it back at Marmoset's Hott Summer Nights MusicFest Party at Rontoms on Sunday, September 9th 2012

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.
