PHOTO REVIEW: PROM QUEEN/LA LUZ & IS/IS AT THE DOUG FIR 1.23.15
Prom Queen has been on my radar for a couple years now, and until this past Friday at Doug Fir Lounge, I was unable to ever catch them live. Not for the sake of not liking their sound, cause frankly I loved it. It was a bit different than what was trending at the time (folk), so I was captivated.
The bands sound translated beautifully at The Doug Fir and they almost stole the show. It was their first Portland performance, and I have no doubt that they will be coming back to play a very excited and enthusiastic crowd.
I haven’t seen La Luz play since SXSW last year, and you can tell these ladies have been hitting the pavement hard. Sound is incredibly tight, and rolling through their set effortlessly. Even a misstep they play off without 98% of the crowd realizing. They have certainly found a groove. And after hearing a a new track or two, I can’t wait for whats next.
I missed most if IS/IS’s set, but they sounded incredible as well.
