Join us for a swoonworthy shoegaze / dream-pop bill, with three lovely Portland locals joined by Omaha's See Through Dresses!

Tender Age
Portland-based dreamy shoegaze band Tender Age has been around since 2012. The five-piece released a self-titled EP in late 2013, which is a hazy, three-song journey through dreamy riffs and light vocals. Tender Age is influenced by such bands as Echo and the Bunnymen, Slowdive and Cocteau Twins. They most recently released a single in August 2014, 'Get High', from their upcoming album.

Misty Mary — vocals, bass (also in Blouse)
Michael Yun — guitar (also in Houndstooth)
Stevie Sparks — drums

See Through Dresses
Bursting onto the Omaha scene with its 2013 self-titled debut, the Omaha indie rock band continues to gain international traction. The band has toured the U.S. several times over and made trips through Canada and Europe. It has recently shared the road with Cursive, Beach Slang, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Charly Bliss, while locally opening for the likes of Sebadoh, Soul Asylum, and Deep Sea Diver.

Drowse is the work of Portland, OR artist Kyle Bates.
Following an EP and LP, «Memory Bed» was largely written and recorded using one microphone, a laptop and an acoustic guitar during a Summer spent working in Zamora, Spain. While traveling, Bates found himself returning to the dark sounds from around his home for inspiration--music of the Pacific Northwest such as Grouper, Mount Eerie, Velvet Cacoon, and Unwound. Organs and synths ooze from crackling guitars, noise groans in the distance and swallows voices; the sound mirrors the feeling of wandering unfamiliar landscapes, both outside and internally. Drowse also co-wrote two songs on Miserable's «Uncontrollable» LP («Stay Cold» and «Salt Water»).

«Memory Bed» plays with themes of detachment and memory and their relationship to the «self» from the perspective of someone who has suffered dissociative experiences. Heavily influenced by writers like Roland Barthes and Sarah Manguso, Drowse works with ideas of «the self as text», «making the personal public» and allowing space for the paradox to create new meaning. Maya Stoner of Portland band Sabonis lends her voice to every song and contributes lyrics to «Memory». Her lyrics reflect on experiences with Bates; these lyrics are refracted in the song «Break». «i» continues to explore the topic with the intent of all drowse recordings: to glimpse the unknowable self, to express the inexpressible through sound.
