Songwriter/musician/carnival barker Joe Haege, of Tu Fawning and 31Knots, is bidding Portland adieu. After spending 14 years here, the bountifully creative cornerstone of this city's music scene has been bitten by that most seductive of bugs: acting. Haege's move to LA is less of a boondoggle than it seems—his impressive turns in locally made indie films like How the Fire Fell and Field Guide to November Days clearly show that the man knows how to behave in front of a camera. (Let's not get into Exhibit C, Haege's bizarro turn as a Jellicle cat in the commercial for Beech St. Parlor.) Haege says goodbye with a stacked bill of his close friends' bands, and he also threatens to open the evening with a short set of songs from his new solo project, recorded under the name Vin Blanc/White Wine. Digital downloads of the album will be available for sale as well. NED LANNAMANN
