Back in November, PDX Magazine sponsored another epic event-adventure featuring local spaghetti western favorites Federale, Brent DeBoer’s Aussie ensemble Immigrant Union, and PDX sweetheart Zia McCabe’s Brush Prairie.
A western revival of sorts, the night proved to be quite the hipster hoedown. Each act brought with them a unique approach to classic country-folk jamborees and mystical-magic melodies. From Immigrant Union’s clashing of traditional folk sounds with the flashy foray of experimental glam-rock to Federale’s original revival of classic western movie soundtracks to Brush Prairies covers of timeless outlaw country, the homegrown gritty grooves did not disappoint the sell-out crowd.
Check out the event videos below and be sure to join us for our next grand event.
