Event Time:

On Saturday, September 14, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and UO Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Hyper Sloth back to the WOW Hall along with Alamance and Laundry.  J.A.M., a group from this summer's Music's Edge Summer Rock Camps, will kick off the show.

 Playing is support of their first EP Crack The Whip, Hyper Sloth is a four piece rock and roll band with melodic metal overtones. All four members are seasoned musicians who are very focused and driven by their passion to create. With their combined talents and experience in the scene, they formed this all-original band from the ground up in 2014.  Hyper Sloth takes their music very seriously but at the same time they are sarcastic pranksters who love to have a great time playing rock n roll.

“Having only seen this NEW version of the band once all I can say is that this band holds their audience’s attention with the impeccable precision of the rhythm section,” reports Dave Wilson (Guitars Under the Stars), “John Raden on drums and Terry Travis holding down the bottom end.”  Raden is one of the instructors at the WOW Hall's Music’s Edge Summer Rock Camp.

 Lead vocalist Phoebe Blume is a powerhouse with an incredible dynamic range and natural talent for coming up with great melodies and harmonies.  She writes her own lyrics, and the raw power she harnesses with her voice is chilling. She has a natural talent for fronting a band; her energy and charisma will keep you captivated.

Hyper Sloth guitarist Issa Koberstein has some of the sickest chops on the axe of anybody in the Willamette Valley.  He has been perfecting his craft since the early 1990’s citing local heroes Uncle Spunk as a major influence.  Issa has been in many prominent local bands such as We Have Guns.  His years of practice and performing combine to create the guitar styling for the Sloth.

The live performance is something to behold, so come see them.  You will not be disappointed.

ALAMANCE

Alamance is a five-piece rock band from Eugene that blends rock elements from a variety of genres, styles and eras. Alamance’s most recent recording, Collateral, set the foundation for the band’s sound and provided the inspiration for the next installment -- expected late 2019.

Alamance has played at Luckey's, Old Nicks, Sam Bonds, Lane County Fair and many others.  They made their WOW Hall debut in support of Hyding Jekyll and Vial Experiment. 

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.

Laundry was a finalist for the WOW Hall’s Eugene LIVE! series this year.  Their latest release Affirmation, from April 2019, was recorded at Echo Hill in Portland, Oregon.

Laundry toured through the Pacific Northwest and into Canada this summer, and made their Oregon Country Fair debut in Community Village.   You can follow them online at @laundrytheband. 

Tickets are $8 in advance or at the door.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 8:30.
