Come join Swil, The Punctuals and Comedy of Terrors for a Halloween night to remember…or not remember! The night will kick off at 8pm with a costume contest (with over $100 in prizes), followed by an incredible night of energetic, non-stop rock n roll!
Comedy of Terrors
9pm (doors open at 8pm).
Swil was a short lived, yet energetic band formed in early 03' and parted ways unceremoniously almost 3 years to the day. Very young and naive, Swil set out to try to make a name in Portland. Without the experience, there were often mistakes in their live performances, though often dismissed by most fans and patrons of venues, due to the charismatic frenzy that Swil would throw at you. From nice soft love ballads, to some straight up punk rock, to some hardcore thrash, Swil LOVED to come at you from a new angle with each and every song they would write.
The Punctuals are a Portland, Oregon based alternative punk and roll band. Their music has been described as a cross between your favorite band and your second favorite band slammed together and set on fire. Soaring and soulful vocals on top of frantic guitar riffs and a rhythm section that rumbles like a runaway train. The Punctuals are not to be missed. More information on them can found at www.thepunctuals.com - friend, fan, or fave them if you dare!
The Guitarist from The Tailgunners joins up with the Drummer from Symon Asher, the Singer from Monovolt, and a Bass player of questionable origin, it's Rock & Roll. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...

Jon is the author of a book, Of Bombs And Blackberries. One critic calls it "the only guide to life you will ever need." That critic happens to be Jon himself. Jon is also the author of the blog Rhetorock. He thinks he's funny. Sometimes, he is. Other times, he probably should have kept his mouth shut. www.jondavidsonmusic.com
Jon grew up in Michigan, lived in Israel, Austria, and Russia, and now calls Portland, Oregon home. He is convinced that Portland is the greatest city in the history of mankind. When he's not playing music, he enjoys mountain biking, climbing, Jon Krakauer, Boggle, starfruit, and being Jon Davidson.
