Microshards

Here’s an unusual band that’s definitely worth checking out.  We attended the Jonathan Toubin benefit at Siberia–to support the DJ who was unlucky enough to have a diabetic cab driver crash through his first floor hotel room in Portland and roll over him–and among the usual (but fun) suspects, encountered the Microshards.  It’s a two piece band (bass and guitar), with both players cranking over a looped drum track.  Give it a minute (or 10)–when we first heard them, the monotonous drum loop seems a bit…monotonous.  But then the magic of wild bass and guitar screaming over that track grabs you, and, well, there it is.  Kudos to an interesting concept and I’m afraid the Microshards have another groupie.  Pics:
