Mt. Fuji Records Showcase

t. Former Cop (as in “the Cops“) and Mt Fuji label head Mike Jaworski has successfully carved a niche for his once-humble label by signing great Northwest bands, from the moody alt country stylings of the Maldives, to the sexy, sweet punk of the Whore Moans, to Portland act Point Juncture, WA’s bright synthpop. They may vary in genre, but the members of Mt. Fuji’s roster are similarly matched when it comes to talent and edge. Finally, while the Cops are no more, Mike Jaworski’s new Cops-ish band, Virgin Islands, will unveil their EP in conjunction with this evening’s festivities. Also featured is label newbie Spiral Stairs (aka Scott Kannberg), who was formerly a member of this little band you may have heard of called Pavement. Friday show with Spiral Stairs, Weinland, the Maldives and Point Juncture, WA. MA'CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR

Fri., Nov. 20, 9 p.m., 2009
