Doors 7pm

Often compared to the early lo-fi eclecticism of Beck, Blitzen Trapper's

music went through various genres with each record, from Neil

Young-inspired to experimental pop, indie folk, and art

rock. The band formed in 2000 in Portland, OR, with songwriter Eric

Earley leading a lineup that also included Erik Menteer (guitar,

keyboard), Brian Adrian Koch (drums, vocals), Michael Van Pelt (bass),

Drew Laughery (keyboard), and Marty Marquis (keyboard, vocals). Before

signing a record contract in 2007, the band released three albums on its

own dime: an eponymous effort in 2003, Field Rexx in 2005, and the

highly acclaimed Wild Mountain Nation in 2007. The latter album landed

the group a record deal with Sub Pop.

With Sub Pop's help, the group hit a creative peak with 2008's Furr, a

collection of 13 songs that found Blitzen Trapper boiling down its many

influences into a cohesive, unique Americana sound. The Black River

Killer EP followed in 2009, and the group spent part of that year

working on a new full-length release, which arrived one year later in

the form of Destroyer of the Void. ~ Kenyon Hopkin&Andrew Leahey,
