On Thursday, June 6, the Community Center for the Performing Arts in association with Ninkasi Brewery & Recording Studio and EventStar Productions proudly host Eugene LIVE! – Final featuring performances by Father Nature, Hippie Fight, Laundry, Novacane, Ron Selfridge and The Muddy Souls.

More opportunities for local performers!  The people demanded it; the WOW Hall supplied it.  Beginning in January, the CCPA hosted a series of six concerts highlighting the talents of Northwest musicians.  Out of the twenty-eight acts that participated, we are down to the final six.  On June 6 the audience will vote for their favorite act.  The chosen artist wins a recording package at Ninkasi Recording Studio and a slot on a select 2019 EventStar Productions festival.

Thank you to all of the performers who participated in Eugene LIVE! and to all the music fans who turned out to hear them.  We got to hear some incredible performers.  Here are the finalists.  Each represents a different genre of music.

 

FATHER NATURE

 

Father Nature is a 22-year old rapper/producer from Roseburg, Oregon.  He is supported by his label Productz of Nature (est. 2015) with fellow artists Loon the Goon and Wiley.  They have released three projects so far.

 

HIPPIE FIGHT

 

Hippie Fight is the musical equivalent of a stick of butter?

 

LAUNDRY

 

Laundry is a dream rock band from Eugene, Oregon.  All four members (Kiki - guitar/vocals, Cal - bass/vocals, Nik - drums, and Riley - guitar/vocals) came together in 2017.  They each have different musical influences, which have resulted in an eclectic style developed through a collective songwriting process.  Their latest project Affirmation was recorded at Echo Hill in Portland and released in April.

Laundry will be touring through the Pacific Northwest and into Canada this summer.

 

NOVACANE

 

Combining a sonic array of psychedelic soundscapes and kinetic live performances, Novacane consists of guitarist/vocalist Dylan Latimer, bassist Oliver Lester and drummer Rhen Winona.  Beginning their musical endeavors at the socially awkward age of 15, Novacane has spent the better half of the last decade meticulously crafting their own brand of self-titled "Psych Pop".

 

RON SELFRIDGE

 

Ron Selfridge is a Pacific Northwest native who stops the room with his Folk/Americana music, poetic lyrics and dark melodies.  Still finding his path to new songs, Ron’s music is rich with meaning and impact.  He shares his songs and music with anyone who wishes to lend an ear, and hopes his music might reach out and touch his listeners’ heart and soul.  When not playing music he wanders the deep woods of Oregon avidly pursuing the elusive Sasquatch.

 

THE MUDDY SOULS

 

An acoustic American roots music group based out of Eugene, The Muddy Souls are Jacob Camara (guitar) Austen Slone (mandolin), Julianna Meares (double bass) and Pete Romanelli (guitar).

       The Muddy Souls were born in the desert and raised in a lion's den.  They took their time traveling a long and winding road to their current home in Eugene.  Along the way they picked up some songs by Django Reinhardt, David Grisman, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and Radiohead as well as writing some of the best originals west of the Mississippi.  Their concerts are an acoustic blend of folk, bluegrass, country and chaos that’s sure to get you stompin' your feet and grinnin' your teeth.

 

Please come support these artists and Eugene LIVE!  It's going to be fun.

The CCPA is looking forward to future collaborations with local businesses, local musicians, and the performing arts community to bring people together to support our community.

 

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 day of show.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 8:30.
