Meet Giuda: Italy's premier exponents of insanely infectious, glam- tinged and gritty rock 'n' roll. Formed in 2007, these lysergic power-pop warriors have a decade of active service under their utility belts and a brand new album, E.V.A. (Extravehicular Activity) , which seals the band's hard-earned triumph in the face of tragedy. "Before Giuda, our singer Tenda and I had a band called Taxi, which was strongly influenced by the '77 Punk scene," explains guitarist Lorenzo. "In a tragic accident In 2007 we lost our drummer Francesco. The loss felt so significant, we decided to call it a day as Taxi.

Towards the end of the year, we found our energies were starting to renew. We wanted to play again. At the time we had just discovered something that was completely new to our ears. The relatively unknown sound of 'junkshop glam' had entered our world. These new sounds had the same impact on me that punk music had, many years before. A strong influence from this music crept into our songwriting and our approach to the recording process. Consequently, a new project was born, the fruits of which became Giuda's first album, Racey Roller . The album was an unexpected minor success, and because of that, from that day on, music has become our full-time job." Every last track on E.V.A . will lodge itself in your skull like some kind of miniaturised robot invader.

Giuda are a band with proud and persistent roots in the glory days of garage rock and proto-metal, when bands wrote fistfuls of anthems before breakfast. From fiery opener Overdrive and the throbbing spacebound strut of Interplanetary Craft through to You've Got The Power 's hazy AC/DC-isms and the scorched earth funky new wave of Cosmic Love and Ravers Rock , Giuda's fourth full-length album is an outright celebration of balls-out, hook-drenched and wilfully eccentric abandon. Welcome shades of everything from Cheap Trick and Big Star through to Devo and the Ramones collide with some irresistible psychedelic embellishments and subtle bursts of sonic strangeness. Simultaneously old school and as fresh and modern as can be, E.V.A. is simply the greatest rock'n'roll record you haven't heard yet.

"Giuda is a modern band with its roots firmly planted in two musically revolutionary decades, the '60s and the '70s," says Lorenzo. "We're not an analogue nerds, not anymore at least! During our years in recording studios, we've gained considerable experience and now we understand how important it is to get the best you can from everything you have at your disposal. The end justifies the means! We can't afford to record an album at Abbey Road, so we have to make the most of is available to us. New technologies and recording techniques, used in the right way, can really help. I think our new LP perfectly reflects the essence of this band. It hopefully sounds fresh and new even though we did employ some good old fashioned techniques like 'vinyl cutting', done straight from tape!"

Ticket holders for this show get into Sinferno Cabaret free on the same night.

Oregon Arts Watch recently referred to cellist/multi-instrumentalist Skip vonKuske "one of Oregon's finest and most adventurous musicians." A co-founder of the Portland Cello Project, the genre defying cello ensemble, Skip continues to perform and collaborate with other artists. His solo project is "cellotronik", in which he incorporates a rich array of cello, guitar, mandolin, vocals, software instruments and live looping. The result is a unique blend of classical virtuosity, rocknroll heart, and folksy charm wrapped in a cloak of inspired originals, improvisations, and unexpected cover songs.

Salem, Oregon-based black doom crushers HELL are swiftly rising from the depths. Disregarding stereotypical religious themes and instead focusing on a grieving, doom-ridden personal Hell, the band creates wildly imaginative atmospheric overtones and droning soundscapes over shattering doom metal. A ghastly ambiance is set thanks to conceptual album art compiled from the works of Gustave Dore.

Tinderbox Circus Sideshow is a classic traditional traveling carnival-style ten-in-one touring sideshow. Their antics include feats of what you might think when thinking of the side tent at the circus of old : Sword Swallowing, The Wasp-Waisted Woman, The Human Blockhead(s), Glass Walking (or jumping), Fire Eating (not breathing, unless requested).

An all-american classic circus sideshow, combining timeless acts of shock and amazement with a punk rock presentation, and a dirty south attitude. The result is a uniquely modern experience; unlike anything else in today's entertainment industry.

They spend over half of the year touring the country bringing their version of weird to the masses in bars, clubs, theaters, dives, restaurants, fairs, parking lots, fields, back alleys...anywhere somebody'll hire 'em. Since 2014, they have self-produced 7 tours and performed over 400 shows from east to west. Tinderbox is the last remaining professionally organized and accredited touring sideshows in the country, with awards from five organizations and festivals within their industry for the work they contribute to the showperson's industry in general including : "The 2017 Spotlight Award" from the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny (previously "The Sideshow Gathering" held in Philadelphia) "Masters of Amazement 2015" from nationally-reknowned competition organization Burlypicks & "Best Act 2015" from the Southern Fried Burlesque & Sideshow Festival

Their flavor is a hard one to pin down. They are able to walk into a room, no matter where it be, and read it to its fullest capacity--from the regulars sitting having their drinks to the region surrounding the location--and put on a show that is catered directly to the people and for the people. Tinderbox cares about their audiences and strives to showcase their trade in a way that is manageable (though still exciting!) to all ages, backgrounds, and proclivities.

Tinderbox can pair well with any music in any variety. They have worked with artists like The Legendary Shack Shakers, Here Come the Mummies, Ford Theatre Reunion, The Dresden Dolls, Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, 20 Watt Tombstone, and many many more as well as toured on the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity tour with Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, and more. A local support band is always welcome on a bill with Tinderbox, and they make new friends in new genres every time they go out.
