Ramona Falls @ Doug Fir, 29-Aug-2009

Saw the 7th show ever by Ramona Falls, the Brent Knopf-led offshoot project from Menomena, last night at the Doug Fir. Quite good!  Some similarities to Menomena sounds, but to me at least that’s not a bad thing at all.  The band has a record out, called Intuit, with cover art by local Theo Ellsworth (whose work I saw at the Portland comics fest earlier this year).  They played all 11 songs at the show, and had nothing left for an encore.

Also on the bill were the Brothers Young (led by three literally young brothers who do some nice harmonies) and Dirty Mittens (a quirky take on R&B), so a stylistically diverse show, but each set worked on its own.
