Portland scene report: July 4, 2008

Sibilance starts now
By PORTLAND PHOENIX MUSIC STAFF  |  July 2, 2008

MODERN SYNDROME have changed their name to TURN DOWN DAY, and are designing artwork for their debut full-length album, due out in the next few months. Two new songs from the album are online at myspace.com/itsaturndownday.

Okay, so it’s news anyway that prog-metal types APOTHIS release Reflections and Symmetry, their debut disc, July 12 at the Station. But please take note that Apothis drummer NICK VILLACI is the son of CIVIL DISTURBANCE drummer NIKKO VILLACI. The “Sibilance” staff would like to say that we are glad we don’t live next door to that household. Will the drumming never stop?

Former KINO PROBY member ADAM KURTZ has a solo album primed and ready to launch. The Devil Is Defeated will be celebrated August 9, at SPACE, but we don’t have word on whether this has a Russian schtick associated with it.

TONY DIPHILLIP, over at the FLATBREAD COMPANY on Commercial Street, would like it known that he’s looking for bands, preferably jazz, Afro-Cuban, bluegrass, or otherwise relatively acoustic, to play Sundays from 9 am to noon. Interested parties should drop off demos on Mondays between 9 am and 3 pm.
