Climate change, an increasingly gentrified Portland and… bacon? All things are covered in Don't Be Alarmed, the latest single by Portland's psych-punk folk artist Olivia Awbrey. Set to premiere with her full band at her June 22nd show at Turn! Turn! Turn!, the song is about today's political climate of gaslighting, and balances heavy social commentary and infectious doses of whimsy on a fine edge.
Awbrey has brought together a genre-spanning lineup, with support from Evan Thomas Way
of The Parson Red Heads
and Portland's DIY folk-punk hero Rascal Miles
. As is tradition with Awbrey's release shows, the night will be hosted by local comedian Katie Piatt
, who recently sold out her Male Fragility show at Deep End Theater.
The show is set to sell out, so grab tickets while you can!
