Tonight in Music: Poison Idea, Gandalf, Here We Go Magic, and more

Posted by Morgan Troper on Sun, Oct 31, 2010 at 10:00 AM

POISON IDEA, WEHRMACHT, DEFIANCE, RESIST, CEREMONIAL CASTINGS, HAMMERED GRUNTS, SPELLCASTER

(Satyricon, 125 NW 6th) It ends tonight. PortlandÍs best/worst club depending who you ask Satyricon hosts its final show ever before meeting its fate at the end of a wrecking ball. The house that Portland punk rock builtÓthen spilled beer all over is fittingly going out with a night of classic punk acts, including Poison Idea and Resist. See you in hell, Satyricon. EZRA ACE CARAEFF

GANDALF

(Music Millennium, 3158 E Burnside) Attention, nerdlings! 'Tis time to don our finest mithril and put our magical Glamdring swords to whetstone, for Gandalf has returned!... NERD TRAP. Calm down, Bilbo, it is not that Gandalf. This Gandalf is a band, and it's not the '90s-era Finnish death metal band, either. In 1969, a New York psychedelic pop group known as the Rahgoos changed their name to Gandalf and released their only album on Capitol Records. It's a perfect period piece that's sumptuous and delicately trippy. Now founding members Peter Sando and Frank Hubach are getting back together and performing as Gandalf for the first time since the early '70s, at this afternoon's in-store appearance at Music Millennium. Wear your Legolas costume if you must. NED LANNAMANN


HERE WE GO MAGIC

(Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside) Readour article on Here We Go Magic.

"Hausu" info, as well as a link to the complete show listings, after the jump!

HAUSU SCREENING: SOFT METALS, REPORTER, JEWELS OF THE NILE, LINGER AND QUIET, MAXX BASS

(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Of all the Halloween fun this weekend, this screening of 1977 Japanese horror film Hausu stands out as, if not the scariest, definitely the trippiest option. Even if youÍve seen the monumentally, awesomely bizarre film, the live score by bands like Reporter will take it to the next level. MARJORIE SKINNER
