Hillstomp brings country blues
Last updated 11/7/2023 at 1pm
Portland junkbox blues duo Hillstomp will play The Belfry on Friday, November 10.
The band is infamous for digging through the dumps and forgotten backwoods of American music, recycling traditional elements into a refreshing and distinctive brand of do-it-yourself hill country blues stomp. North Mississippi trance blues, a bit of Appalachia, and a dash of punkabilly come clanging and tumbling from assorted buckets, cans, and BBQ lids, all drenched in rambunctious slide guitar.
Somehow it works.
Despite their homemade instruments and novel approach, Hillstomp is no novelty act.
Hillstomp's memorable live performances tap into a magic that cannot be rehearsed, converting outlaws and traditionalists alike from skeptics into preachers.
The show will be opened by Profit Drama, an eclectic musical collage from Sisters native Trevor Martell. Never using a set list, each night is adapted to the room. From dance rock 'n' roll, to moody love tunes, to space spoken word, you can expect a one-of-a-kind performance to remember.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available through Bend Ticket at https://belfryevents.com/event/hillstomp.
The Belfry is located at 302 E. Main Ave. in Sisters.
