The “Sibilance” staff are mildly excited (okay, maybe a bit giddy) to hear that SPACE GALLERY co-founder TODD BERNARD is moving on to open a new “top-tier music venue with a capacity of 700” here in Portland. We don’t have all the details, but IAN PAIGE (he writes for us, we’re told) is taking over as events programmer at SPACE, and Bernard’s new venue will be a “good complement to the intimacy that SPACE provides, strengthening the possibilities and range of acts that can come to the city.” That would certainly be a good thing. We’re getting a little tired of all our favorite bands skipping our city’s ass to go from Boston to Burlington or Montreal.
No, we didn’t miss the fact that SLY-CHI released a follow-up to Wave Sound on March 1. The “Sibilance” staff simply advised Pfeifle that he’d be better off reviewing The Space in conjunction with the release show at the Big Easy, April 25.
Quick update on ALL THE REAL GIRLS, the post-JEREMIAH FREED project: The first show will be opening up for ROY DAVIS during his release show, April 12.
