‘Daisy Mayhem’ play house concert June 25
Billed as “an intoxicating blend of roots music styles” Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem make a stop in Hood River on Tuesday, June 25. The house concert is at 7 p.m. at 401 Montello Ave., Hood River. This show benefits the Mid-Columbia Folklore Society and donations are accepted at the door. With Rani Arbo (fiddle, guitar), Andrew Kinsey (bass, banjo, uke), Anand Nayak (electric and acoustic guitars) and Scott Kessel (95 percent recycled percussion rig), Daisy Mayhem has “jokingly dubbed itself an ‘agnostic gospel revival show,’ but there’s truth in it; the refrain they hear time and again from audiences all over the country is that their performances really do heal.”
For more information call Paul Blackburn at 541-387-4011.
Sassparilla at CEBU Lounge
This week at CEBU Lounge:
Friday, June 21, Sassparilla, 9:30 p.m. — High-energy roots-punk. “Portland outfit Sassparilla has been referred to as indie-roots, punk-Americana and punk-roots. Though it is the subtleties and folk-pop leanings of their latest, ‘The Darndest Thing,’ that find this five-piece band slowing things down a bit — and growing up musically.”
Saturday, June, Musée Mécanique, 9:30 p.m. – Indie progressive folk. “The notes and lyrics [of Musée Mécanique] is a kind of music-box folk, acknowledging a past rich with mystery and wonder while grappling with a future filled with the chill of the digital age. Since 2006, Musée Mécanique has toured extensively throughout the U.S., bringing their accordion, lap steel, two glockenspiels, musical saw and seven keyboards to new listeners across the globe.” Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
