Entertainment Update for Sept. 25

Scott Law at Cebu Lounge

This week at CEBU Lounge:

Friday, Sept. 27: Scott Law & Damian Erskine w/Anna & The Underbelly, 9:30 p.m. – Guitar and bass masters. Opening act features Anna Tivel from the Shook Twins.

“Musician-songwriter Scott Law embodies the ideal of the steel-string guitar master. Scott’s original songs and story-like solos come straight from the heart of rock, rhythm and blues, California country and post-Monroe bluegrass, merging timeless tradition and modern experience into a spontaneous, artful expression.”

Saturday, Sept. 28: Local Animal presents: The Dirty Moogs, 9:30 p.m. – Analog synthesizer dance party.

“Dream the dream that was electronic music in 1977, a simpler time when robots were still cool, nobody except nerds cared about synthesizers, and analog synths were a dirty affair. Or, at least as dirty as methodical, machinist German electronic specialists would allow. While Boise, Idaho,-based trio The Dirty Moogs twiddle their knobs in homage to their synthesized heroes (Kraftwerk, Sparks, et. al) they add the element long forgotten by synthesizer music: fun.”

Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.

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
