pdx’s best damn dance makers at electropolis featuring vil, serious business, starlight + magic + more

With autoclaps and electro-glory instrumentals, the dense, ravaging riffs of Connor Dudley and synth-y machinescapes built to electronic climax leaving singer Joe Turner gasping on the floor. Blowing out some funky bass lines...

Read the rest and hear the bands on OMN.
