Song Roulette

Random selections from the collection of I is for Ida’s Harry Brown

Harry Brown is a local musician and scooter entrepreneur (downtownscooternm.com). On Monday, Oct. 18, you can find his band I is for Ida performing for the first time in more than a year. Armed with new songs, the band plays in the middle of a tangy Portlander sandwich made of psychedelic disco act Lookbook and gloomy post-punker headliner The Prids. The show happens at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) beginning at 9 p.m. A mere five ducat admission will be granted only to those of legal drinking age. Below lies a random smattering of Brown collection tracks that might provide some sonic foreshadowing for Monday’s show.

See I is for Ida, The World on Fyre, Ya Ya Boom, The Grave Of Nobody’s Darling, Lousy Robot, The Booty Green, The Oktober People, Shoulder Voices and others unplug their giant trumpets from their giant amps on Friday, Sept. 3, at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW). Admission is a bargain at $5, and the show starts at 9 p.m. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
