Kory Quinn at CEBU Aug. 1-2
This week at CEBU Lounge:
There’s two chances this weekend to see Kory Quinn & The Comrades — Friday, Aug 1 and Saturday, Aug. 2 – Boot Stompin’ Folk Blues.
“Songwriter Kory Quinn, a DIY contemporary hobo intellectual, has a refreshingly homespun take on Americana, a very welcome sigh of relief in today's contemporary market. He just released second full-length album, “At The End of The Bar,” which boils down red-dirt basics in a freewheeling roadhouse stew. Quinn's songwriting offers sturdily constructed country, folk, and Cajun-tinged songs for his ensemble to really sink their fangs into on this instant jukebox classic.” Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.
Cascade Crescendo at Everybody's Aug. 1
"Born from the campgrounds of the Northwest String Summit and bluegrass jams in Portland, Cascade Crescendo has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass over the past couple years. While their musical connection began with old traditional tunes, their true sound emerges in their original music."
Their collaborative songwriting combines ancient elements of their traditional influences, with progressive sounds and themes of the modern day, leaving plenty of room for instrumental explorations. Their music ranges from fast, hard driving bluegrass, to funky danceable grooves, to heartfelt acoustic ballads, and back to lively, upbeat bluegrass (sometime all in the same song)!
Cascade Crescendo is Hunter White (guitar), Taylor Skiles (upright bass), Eric Messer (banjo), and Russ Baker (mandolin).
Catch them at Everybody's Brewing in White Salmon on Friday, Aug. 1, starting at 9:30 p.m.
Entertainment listings can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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
