3: outPost

These guys have been playing as a together as a band for eightmonths and already have the tone and grist of seasoned pros. We caughtup with them early the same evening they were due to pick up the goldmaster of their first album, Crack the Pavement

They did their best to mask their nerves about the whole ordeal, unconvincingly as the night wore on, yet they still managed to turn out six tight living room tracks for A/C. These are jam tunes, rhythm andflow, that smack of Sublime, Blues Traveller, a hint of Jamiroquai, andmore than healthy dash of Marley and Judge Roughneck. 

It's summertime, and there's no better way to kick it than with the rocking festival sound. Enjoy Portland's own outPost.
