On September 8 at the Roseland Theatre in Portland, OR, music fans at MusicfestNW will experience something never-before-seen on a concert stage: a back-to-back-to-back performance from Dinosaur Jr., Sebadoh and J Mascis. The groundbreaking show serves as the pilot for Red Bull Common Thread, a new music series dedicated to putting multiple iterations of bands with shared members on a single stage on one night.
In a landscape where musical groups commonly have members explore projects outside of their original lineup, Red Bull Common Thread serves as conduit to bring them all together and celebrate both their similarities and their differences. For the first Red Bull Common Thread, the familial lineage is based off of progenitor Dinosaur Jr. and offshoots J Mascis (solo project of front man J Mascis) and Sebadoh (a three-man group featuring bassist Lou Barlow).
Celebrating the rich and complex musical history these bands have created, a Red Bull Common Thread Pop-Up Shop will come to Portland and will live at The Annex (200 SE Broadway) from Tuesday, September 4 through Sunday, September 9. From imagery to instruments to exclusive video footage, the 1,135 square foot space will feature all of the common threads that tie together the lives of J Mascis, Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr. The space is open to the public and is free to peruse.
Friday 9/7/2012, 7:30-8:30pm: School of Rock Performance, $5 suggested donation benefits PROWUS, a Portland non-profit, that supports students of performance-based rock programs in the Portland area.
