Join us for night of spiritually resonant psychedelic folk-rock music with Whales Whailing as they travel from Portland, Oregon to promote their new album "BodySpeak". Opening the show will be longtime friends, Las Sirenas and Rebar and Plums.
Whales Whailing is a Spiritual Psychedelic Folk-Rock band based in Portland, Oregon led by singer/songwriter, Peter Ryan (vocals, guitar). The band currently consists of Phillip Rogers (drums, vocals), Jared Dancler (bass, vocals), and, usually, Mel Baker (vocals). On this night, Peter Ryan will perform a solo set of Whales Whailing songs
Whales Whailing songs have a spiritual focus and are inspired by dreams, journeys, out-of-body experiences, relationships, and the rewards and challenges of daily life. After many home-demos, "Light Body Heavy Being" (July 2014) was their first full-length album, and "BodySpeak" (July 2015) will be their second.
