Sometimes I'm just plain late to the party. It happens to the best of us. In this case I'm five albums late to the STARS party because the Canadian indie-pop band just released their brilliant 6th studio album "The North" yesterday. I've been listening to an advanced copy for the past several weeks and trust me when I tell you it's fantastic. Or better yet, head to www.youarestars.com where you can hear some tracks and learn more about the band.
And then...you can head to statetheatreportland.com and buy tickets for STARS' show on Thursday, September 20th at Port City Music Hall. Turns out, STARS is starting their American tour right here in Portland.
I LOVE STARS! See you at the show?
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
