Bear Feet : Portland's Best New Band

pc-pdx Apr 12 2009 12:24A 6

PC-PDX.COM | Portland Show GuidePlaying their first public show, these six kids packed the Coop with a horde of friends and pretty much shook the place to the ground.

Bear Feet brings fresh flavor - straight from the 30's. These teenagers offer a sort of Ragtime Americana Stand-Up Bass, delicious Jug-band jazz that's thick brewed in 80 year old styles.

Lovely twin vocals from the lovely Taylor and Elena run reminiscent of all that's good from the Ditty Bops. With two members coming from the defunct thrash band Tibetan Beef Garden, the male half of the string section shows amazing diversity in their talent. Sam K plays a silk stand up bass and 'Uncle Gus's banjo style brings a good western-swing vibe. The Saxophone player, Alex, plays a fashion that's almost misplaced for the band. He plays a Cool/Post Modern Jazz style over a ragtime washboard style, but it somehow honestly works.

Professionally, their sound is a bit immature and has a little bit to grow, they're young and just finished playing their first show as Bear Feet. Though they're not yet quite ready to record a great studio album - they will be soon. In the meantime, their live show is definitely something to be seen: there's foot stomping a plenty with hand clapping galore. Do yourself a favor and check out their next show, this is easily the best new band we've seen in 2009.

    Holy shit - almost a year since the last show and they're back - reinvented and somehow even better than before! This band is absolute darling and fantastic in every way. Pics are posted from the Useless-State show @ the Parlour and Noah got some audio that we can hopefully post soon.

Da Punx Don't let motherfuckers bring you down. I've been an outcast since forever. "hey, we're the punx,!" "you're not punk! OUR SONG SAID SO" ¤ Categories for the braineashed. FALL INTO THE TRAPS. Punk/punkd don't want ya to have a different opinion. Ingrained identity.

Da Punx Up the punks in Vancouver Washington. No fucking punks there. I'm am/was of them. Don't know why there is not a punk scene there, but there isn't. Anyway. No fucking rules in punk! Anyone in punk that tries to makes you feel bad is full of shit!!! "you're not punk!!!" "well, maybe I think for myself!!!" Maybe I don't think like you. Maybe we haven't had the same experiences. It needs to be said.
