• Former Portlander, now New Yorker, RACHEL GRIFFIN is one of 25 artists on a new CD of BRUCE HORNSBY covers, available for free download at salivatecd.com. Throw them a donation for ALS research while you're there.

AMOS LIBBY (OKBARI) and MATT SCHREIBER (CINDER CONK) have a new project they're calling MALANDRINO, which will focus on folk songs from the "Mezzogiorno," or "Land of the Noonday Sun," which is southern Italy, Sicily, and Sardinia. Says Libby: "These songs tell the story of a culture that has often been voiceless in the face of poverty and alienation with simple but arresting melodies and heart-wrenching lyrics." First gig is June 11 at Blue, in Portland.

DARIEN BRAHMS has officially started fundraising on Kickstarter for her fifth solo record, which will comprise songs she's written since the excellent Number 4, a time that has featured jaw-reconstruction surgery (ouch!). She's looking to put together $5000 and record at the STUDIO with STEVE DROWN. Deadline for donations is August 2. The disc should be done by spring 2012.
