Typhoon | Wild Ones @ Mississippi Studios | 6/1 | Doors 7pm/Show 9pm | Sold Out | 21+

Saturday night’s sold out show happens to be the finest way to spend the night. For those who were not quick enough to snag a ticket, there will be a silent auction and DJ set preceding the show, which will be open to the public. Various local artists and shops will be there. Proceeds are going to benefit Cristine Bowman, an employee at Noun who has been battling with cancer for the past 6 months. On Saturday night, music and morality go hand in hand.

Typhoon’s charming wall of sound is reminiscent of spending summer days in a cozy cabin, losing a sense of time and reality. Listeners will be reminded of times spent running around, inciting chaos in quiet and natural environments . The crescendo of horns, strings and Kyle Morton’s strong vocals generate inspiring visions of kaleidoscopic views forests, oceans, cityscapes and carnivals. With 11 or more members making up the entire band, they have found the perfect balance to compliment each other’s individual talents. Their new song, “Dreams of Cannibalism” features intense notes intertwined with calming vocals. Enjoyable guitar melodies and unpredictable ways of the other rapidly switching instrumentation build an expectation for an amazing performance to watch. With all attributes combined comes an extraordinary love child.

Opening for Typhoon is Wild Ones, a band quickly gaining popularity. Their new album is to be released soon. The sweet crooning of Danielle Sullivan’s voice is showcased by bop-worthy beats and catchy melodies. While some songs like “Golden Twin” and “Curse Over Me” project a carefree feeling, , others like “It’s Real” seem quite calculated and serious. The sound provides a scratch to that itch we’ve been having for skating along the Springwater Corridor trail in the sunshine. The band provides a whimsical and satisfying addition the lineup.

Both bands on the lineup are releasing a new album soon, which comes with the promise of being able to listen and dance to new songs. Enjoy Portland-based music while supporting a great cause.
