Nearby lightning and waves of torrential rain pummeled downtown Louisville, on Sunday, June 12, but the storm seemed to disappear right before the show started in the basement of Dona Laurita Gallery known as Down Space. Combining the qualities of a house show and a DIY space (off-the-cuff vibe, relatively clean), Down Space was the perfect setting for Portland's RLLRBLL, no stranger to such settings despite its bona fide cult-band status, and Susurrus Station from the Gorge, Washington. It was art music performed in an art gallery in a Boulder suburb that had all the trappings of small-town life. Here are some scenes from the evening and the immediate environs.
