Inland 360’s second annual Capital Street Dock Concert Saturday, July 18 will feature some of the region’s up and coming
indie bands and their latest original music.
The free, all-ages outdoor event features local and regional musicians and food and drink vendors from 4 to 10 p.m. downtown on stage at the Lewiston Tribune’s loading dock. 505 Capital St., Lewiston. There will be an after party with music at Brock’s, 504 Main St.
Mark Maland leads this Quad Cities country and blues rock, honky tonk band. He’ll be joined by Andy Rosch on bass guitar and Tim McCarty on drums. Influences include Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Vince Gill, Eric Clapton, George Strait, the Three Kings and Waylon Jennings. Burning Wheel has a CD in the works scheduled for release this fall.
Throwback alternative indie rock is the sound of the Lewiston band Struggle Club. The group features Kaitlyn Jorgensen, guitar and vocals; Jordan Thornton, drums; and Austin Moody, bass. After playing together for nearly a decade, Jorgensen and Thornton formed Struggle Club three years ago. Influences include the Pixies, Alanis Morissette, Neil Young and Nirvana. The band recently finished recording the original EP, “Struggle Club Sells Out,” at Lewiston’s Khind of Records studio. It’s scheduled to be released Aug. 1.
Lewiston’s the Market features Talon Jamison, Tyler Howell and Randy Munger performing rock, punk, pop and alternative.
Black is a member of Lewiston-Clarkston Valley band Homewreckr. On Saturday he’ll perform solo.
The Clarkston-based duo El Pelican formed in 2013 and features Brian Baugh on guitar, vocals and bass and Joe Hightower on drums and percussion. Grounded in alternative rock, the band’s work emphasizes thoughtful lyrics in songs like “The Ant & the Yellow Jacket” and “Self Aware Universe.” The band is working on an album it plans to release in September.
Members of the Twine concur the best description of their sound is “comedic punkacana.” With Marvin Lee on guitar, Nathanael Tucker on violin and fiddle and Austin Moody on stand up bass, this nearly 1 year old Lewiston-Clarkston Valley band draws inspiration from groups like the Melvins and John Prine.
Born and ripened in Pocatello, Idaho, the band Snoozy Moon leans toward progressive, psychedelic rock. Influences include obscure early ‘70s groups like Gong, Soft Machine, Can and Tangerine Dream; along with more contemporary bands like the Flaming Lips. Elements of jazz, rock and weirdness are blended in a swoon of varied time signatures, complex bass lines, modified organ sound using a homemade Leslie speaker cabinet, and an effected theremin. Band members are Andrew Peterson, drums, vocals; Mark Charles, organ, guitar, theremin; and Anna Rochelle, bass.
Born and raised in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley, Tucker blends his roots in blues, soul and gospel with more contemporary styles, a soulful voice and skilled guitar playing. He moved to Portland in 2011 to expand his music career and has performed at renowned venues like the Crystal Ballroom and the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival.
