If Portland's not the next Seattle the sonic boom town of the 90s then the Oregon town is at least the next Phoenix, considering all of the Valley musicians who have relocated there in the past few years. The latest defectors-to-be, Teague Cullen and Bri White, are about to take the Oregon challenge. But before they do, the local-music stalwarts bless downtown with a farewell show/CD release at Trunk Space.
Cullen, via his experimental-folk project Foot Ox, pairs beyond-his-years songwriting with everything-but-the-kitchen-sink sound orchestrations, while White, though more stripped-down musically, is no less daring, lying bare with subtly vulnerable lyrics.
