TBA sounds like nothing you’ve heard before.
TBA presents incredible musicians experimenting at the edge of their craft. While we love all of the artists we bring town, we’re getting extra psyched about the coming lineup of bands this September. TBA:13 marks the triumphant return to Portland of two of rock’s most important women: Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) with her new band The Julie Ruin, and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) as Body/Head with Bill Nace. The music lineup at TBA also welcomes a new iteration of Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne’s pop-deconstruction The Blow and a night of collaborative synth improvisations from Led Er Est, Blues Control, and more.
To get you in the mood for ten days of amazing shows, we’ve compiled a summer mix-tape of some of our upcoming artists.
