Sparse, chaotic, lulling music all in the same song.
That’s the best way to describe the duo R. Ring, who plays the Pub Station on May 5 in a 21-and-older show.
Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 8 p.m. General admission tickets go on sale Friday for $10. They are also $10 the day of show. Tickets are available at 1111presents.com, the Pub Station box office at 2502 First Ave. N., or by calling 877-987-6487.
R. Ring is Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery. They mix together voices, guitars and keys. The music is, at the very least, a stark departure from the music they make in their other bands (Kelley with The Breeders and Mike with Ampline.)
They are currently putting finishing touches on recordings for a single due out on Misra Records.
World music at Garage
Sol Seed, with its mix of rock, reggae, hip hop, soul, world music and psychedelic jam, is playing Yellowstone Valley Brewing Company’s Garage Pub on Wednesday, May 6.
Local world music duo Satsang opens.
Based in Eugene, Ore., Sol Seed is known for producing thought-provoking lyrics and infectious grooves at high-energy live performances.
Sol Seed has gained momentum in recent years and created a diverse and loyal fan base in the Northwest. Sol Seed was awarded “Eugene’s Best Band” three years running by Eugene Weekly readers, and was recently declared “Eugene’s Next Big Thing.”
Sol Seed’s 2012, 2013 and 2014 festival circuit included the0 Oregon Country Fair, Seattle Hemp Fest, Mohawk Valley Music Festival, North West World Reggae Festival and Kaleidoscope Music Festival.
Sol Seed got their start in 2009 when songwriters Michael Lennon and Michael Sorensen joined hands with fellow friend and musician Benny Pezzano through a southern Oregon open mic.
In October 2010, all the members transplanted to Eugene, Ore., to pursue life and music. Soon after they linked up with emcee, keyboardist, didgeridoo player and percussionist Sky Guasco.
