Dunes in Portland (The Band, Not the Bar)

Posted by Ethan Jayne on Mon, Aug 9, 2010 at 1:24 PM

Every once in a while, our fine publication will miss a truly kickass show that should have been written about but wasn't. Usually, it's because the concert in question is a house show, but this one is at Valentine's so we really dropped the ball on it. I suppose the good news is that everyone else missed it as well, so here's our chance to one-up the competition.

Los Angeles trio Dunes—featuring (left to right) Kate Hall, formerly of Mika Miko, Stephanie Chan of Finally Punk, and Mark Greshowak from Talbot Tagora— are playing their first ever Portland date tonight. Hearing members of your favorite punk bands conjure up Cocteau Twins-inspired dream-pop is every bit as amazing as it sounds, plus their hand-numbered, 500-pressed debut 12" on Mexican Summer is one of my favorite records of the year so far. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, you probably won't anytime soon—it went out of print like that—so don't miss your chance to see them live tonight.

LISTEN:

Dunes - "Blue Fire"

Dunes performs tonight at Valentine's (232 SW Ankeny) with Magic Johnson and Psychic Feline. There is no cover, but donations for the touring band will be collected at the door.
