Vin Blanc/White Wine, Your Rival, Wild Ones

When: Thu., July 25, 9 p.m. 2013

Joe Haege of 31Knots/Tu Fawning notoriety returns with his sophomore LP under the nom de plume Vin Blanc. Returning to visit Portland following his departure to Los Angeles last year, Haege's singular bizarre midi-punk maelstrom is on full display throughout In Every Way but One, giving spotlight to the less post-punky elements employed in his revered 31Knots, and more of the beat-heavy meditations on Tu Fawning's excellent A Monument. Guitars are sparse tinsel on In Every Way, but Haege has the tendency to make the most out of very little (case in point: the invading presence of "I'm Here"), and is easily one of the more engaging performers to rep Portland in the last 20 years. Vin Blanc's new LP is given a proper release tonight via Party Damage Records. RYAN J. PRADO
