About Monica Nelson and The Highgates
Monica Nelson and the Highgates. The band's pedigree reads like a
"Who's Who" in stoner rock, punk rock & vaudeville. At the helm,
Monica Nelson. Monica Nelson has returned to stages in Portland. And
backing her, writing new material for the Monica Nelson songbook, is
this veteran metalpunk band with a fondness for cough syrup (and not
afraid of doom or stoner rock), from Portland Oregon, built from
scraps of robots, Robutussin, helicopter parts and prison shivs.
Wallpaper paste, rubber cement, airplane glue. Long solitary walks
down deserted forest trails.
About Jenny Don't & the Spurs
JENNY DON'T AND THE SPURS are Portland's hottest new
roots-country trio. Featuring JENNY DON'T (DON'T, LADIES OF THE NIGHT),
KELLY HALLIBURTON (PIERCED ARROWS, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S.), and SAM HENRY (WIPERS,
RATS, NAPALM BEACH, DON'T), JENNY DON'T AND THE SPURS bring a variety of
musical styles and an formidable wealth of experience to the stage.
Live, the trio concentrates on playing a set of mostly original songs, bolstered by a few choice classic covers (HANK WILLIAMS, PATSY CLINE, ERNEST TUBB...). JENNY DON'T AND THE SPURS have also recently released a limited-edition 7" vinyl 45 on local label TOMBSTONE RECORDS.
