Unknown: Mount Eerie

I really hate fog machines.

Maybe a combination of small lungs, an easily upsettable stomach and memories of so many suffocating shows at the DAM Haus, I just feel claustrophobic as soon as those things start spilling out clouds.

But when it’s Mount Eerie, and they’ve filled the machine with a custom blend of things that actually smell kind of nice, and you’re trapped in the front row with no easy escape anyway, it’s tolerable. (It also makes it tough to take pictures, thus some watercolors by my bud Champoy Hate!)

Phil Elverum is now performing with a new lineup consisting of Nich and Allyson from Hungry Cloud Darkening, Carson from Takhoma and Paul from Ever Ending Kicks. It’s heavy.

That concludes my Anacortes Unknown 2012 coverage! I have a few extra recordings of Karl Blau, Ashley Eriksson, Motorbikes and Grouper — let me know if you’re interested.
