The phrase “of the Brian Jonestown Massacre” is thrown about by so many Portland musicians you’d think it’s earned by dating a Magic Garden stripper, but multi-instrumentalist Collin Hegna actually plays bass for the band. Hegna’s also a producer at his own Revolver studios, rocks with the Cocaine Unicorns and takes on the art of film-scoring with Federale (not to be confused with the Brooklyn rockers of the same name), who take their cues from Goblin, Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti for a sweeping nod to soundtracks of the past. On the bill and cinematically inspired as well re local boys Geist, whose take is of the “Americana Gothic” variety and creepily unsettling. With The Sacred Ensemble, Cabin #9.
