[BOUNTY O' SONGS] Wow, busy day at the Doug Fir, huh? One could hypothetically get there around 3 pm for barbecue on the patio, stick around for Run On Sentence and new Eric D. Johnson of the Fruit Bats (a band whose great new album, Tripper, seems to travel through the decades in search of its muse) and the Shins (which just played a sold-out show here). When the outdoor shows are done, we recommend grab some dinner and beers before heading downstairs for the rock ’n' roll show. Spirit Lake's new EP, Between Me and the Mountain, is a much-needed shot of wailing rock (think of the Black Keys hanging out with Exile on Main Street-era Stones, but with just a pinch of woodsy pre-grunge fare for good measure) in Portland's all-too-precious arm. Frontman Travis Ferguson has been around the block a few times with his previous band the Days (drummer Brian Head is still onboard) and his formative group, Marigold, but this one is a little more raw and moody, and it's a good look.
