This Friday at the River City Saloon, Freewillinsoul from Portland will play its funky, upbeat, acoustic/electric fusion of blues, bluegrass and rock. Original songs propelled by infectious grooves create a melting pot for the six piece ensemble which includes two guitars, bass, drums and male and female vocals. This is their debut performance here at the River City and this should prove to be a jammin good time
ALO is coming to town this Saturday for a 9:30 p.m. show at the River City Saloon, and you won't want to miss one of the most exciting and innovative live acts on the music scene today. Animal Liberation Orchestra has a clear mission: to spread rapture through music.
Steeped in the legacy of down-and-dirty funk, ALO offers a musical vision which draws on an astounding array of influences, from trance to reggae, bluegrass to booty-beat, psych-out to soul.
The group's live concerts, best described as a kind of jam-band vaudeville show, feature special effects, comic skits and the group's own spell-binding improvisations to draw unsuspecting audiences together into a riotous, rapturous dance floor frenzy.
ALO enjoys a nationwide reputation for peerless musicianship and top-notch entertainment. To experience ALO is to become devoted to its one-of-a-kind musical vision.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
