Nick Jaina will be playing live this Thursday on KEXP at 1pm. Tune in at kexp.org or on the dial in Seattle. And if that leaves you curious for a visual, we’ve got you covered. Two new cuts of A Narrow Way (Oct 14) played at The Doug Fir Patio just yesterday:
Jeff London is paying Portland a visit for the first time in a couple of years. Says End Hits: “London used to be a fixture in our local music scene. Evidently [he] grew tired of our cheap rent and easily livability, so he high-tailed it to New York a few years back.”
He played a cool, spare set on a hot Thursday night at Towne Lounge delivering the classics and songs off his ’07 release The Bane of Progress.

Laura Gibson and band!

The first song of Loch Lomond’s second set of the day. I was feelin’ it, man.
