Friday the 17th of June the Killing Sasquatch crew went out to Troutdale, OR at the legendary venue Edgefield. To catch some well established acts in Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. We got there right before PHJB took the stage.
Preservation Hall Jazz Band
Started off the Friday night right by catching the swinging jazz band from New Orleans. Preservation Hall Jazz Band played a bunch of classic jazz standards along with a bunch of tunes from their newest album called That’s It!. It was so much fun to see a classic jazz band riff different solos during each song.
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
The headliner for the night was Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. It was my first time seeing them live and it was such a fun time. Front man, Alex Ebert, was the definition of cool hipster. I wanted to hate how hip he was, but there was an air of coolness around him that I just couldn’t. They are in support of their latest album, PersonA which came out in April. So they played a bunch of songs from there, but also some old ones and a cover of Velvet Underground’s “Who Loves the Sun”.
It was a great Friday night that will not be forgotten as quickly as some others!
