Tonight in Music: Alela Diane

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, Feb 28, 2012 at 12:24 PM

(Oaks Pioneer Church, 455 SE Spokane) Quickly following last year's band effort, Alela Diane & Wild Divine, local songwriter Alela Diane already has a batch of new material on the way. Early reports from Diane indicate that it'll be very much a solo record, perhaps the most intimate work she's done since her debut, The Pirate's Gospel. Such cozy material cries out for a cozy room to play it in, and Diane has found exactly that, playing a two-night stand at the tiny, historic Oaks Pioneer Church in Sellwood. With scarcely 50 tickets available a night, both shows promptly sold out. Tonight's show also includes Evan Way, whose band the Parson Red Heads just entered the studio to record the follow-up to last year's lovely Yearling. In the meantime, six Parsons tracks from the Yearling sessions will be released on a new EP, Murmurations, next month. NED LANNAMANN
