A couple weeks ago Helen wrote this review of the band Cloud Cult. Music junkie that I am I couldn’t resist heading over to their website to check them out and listen to some of their tunes. Wow! I was really impressed with this band. Not only their sound but their socially and environmentally conscious approach to music, art and life.
Checking their tour schedule I was happy to find they were playing Portland the very next week, so last Thursday Mark and I called some friends and headed off to the Fez Ballroom. We were not disappointed! The band puts on a unique multi-media performance and their music is sophisticated and energetic. I’d go on but I couldn’t possibly write a more comprehensive or enthusiastic review than Helen so head on over and read what she had to say. I have to agree on every count except she could’ve used a bit more hyperbole. Really.
On our way out we ran into Craig Minowa, the lead singer/songwriter and founder. What a freakin’ nice guy he was, and not hard on the eyes either. I would love to take him home just to pick his brain. In fact, I’d take the whole band home. I can hardly wait for their return in September.
