Caves (Someday Lounge)
According to event organizers, approximately 50% of all acts performing at this year's festival hail from Portland. One of the best of the bunch, Caves, closed the curtain on this year's event with a 1:00 A.M. set at the stylish Someday Lounge. Blending jerky, ska-inspired guitar riffs and a sneaky, serpentine rhythm section with a casual but oh-so-cool sense of fashion, the band had various attendees dancing their way into a sweaty mess. Some have compared Caves' moody pop to acts like the Police or the Jam, or contemporary bands like Bloc Party and Interpol, but none of these labels really stick. Caves' peculiar sound is a testament to just how awesome they truly are.
