Boise Rock n’ Roll Showcase at HQ
March 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $5.00
Marshall Poole, Gipsy Moonrise and Lucid Aisle – From Boise. In La Grande.
All Treefort performers. All Rock N’ Roll.
HQ (112 Depot St.) is hosting the Boise Rock n’ Roll Showcase featuring Marshall Poole, Gipsy Moonrise and Lucid Aisle. The age 21 and over showcase begins at 8pm (doors open at 7pm) and costs $5 per person at the door. Beer and wine will be available for purchase by the glass inside.
Here is just some of what’s been said about the headliner of the showcase.
“Marshall Poole isn’t a person; it’s a four-piece rock ’n’ roll outfit that originated out of the Boise suburbs at a New Year’s party in 2011. While the band is most certainly from Idaho, much of the music of their late-2015 release Totems is full of grizzly psychedelic Southern rock licks. It’s music that speaks to your soul while also slapping you in the face.”
— The Inlander
“…this band has been described as ‘a sweaty rock n’ roll hurricane’ (Idaho Statesman), and that’s deadly accurate. Swooning, dark, rhythmic, powerful rusty rock n’ roll with a strong female lead singer … They’re an elusive rock n roll beast.
— Next Northwest
Also playing at the showcase are Gypsy Moonrise and Lucid Aisle. The 5 member band Gypsy Moonrise just played with Marshall Poole at the Neurolux Lounge in Boise, and Lucid Aisle’s music is said to be akin to abstract rabbit-hole rock n’ roll.
HQ is hosting the showcase as part of its continued efforts to bring together La Grande’s downtown and Eastern Oregon University communities through cultural activities, the arts and by simply being a physical space that organizations can use to open up conversations.
