Scott Pemberton Electric Power Trio
Thursday, October 3 / 9:30 pm-12:30 am
It’s been two-and-a-half years which is way too long since Scott Pemberton has performed his mind-bending guitar sorcery on our stage. Now touring with an Electric Power Trio, the music of this six-string virtuoso is more powerful than ever. Have you ever seen someone play a guitar without a strap? Pemberton attacks his instrument, playing it like a piano. Committed as always to infectious, inventive dance music, Pemberton’s funky, surfy “Timber Rock” is a one of a kind. If James Brown, Dick Dale and Jimi Hendrix planted a fruit tree in Portland, this sound might have fallen off. Their original material is overflowing with energy and their approach to the occasional cover is so unconventional, it must be seen to be believed.
