The Liberty Theater Announces “The Sunset Series” with Blind Pilot, Horse Feathers and More
Horse Feathers/Mandolin Orange – 7/13
Blind Pilot “And then Like Lions” Album Release – 8/19
The Liberty Theater is proud to release the details of its’ upcoming and long-awaited, “Sunset Series,” a special program of genre-spanning folk music in the historic Liberty Theater. The series kicks off with a July 13th preview show featuring a dual bill of Northwest meets Appalachian music. Portland’s Horse Feathers join North Carolina’s Mandolin Orange for an intimate night of music on the Liberty Theater stage offering a glimpse of what’s to come for the Sunset Series.
Home-town heroes, Blind Pilot, kick off the official Sunset Series on August 19th with a CD Release Concert debuting songs from their upcoming major-label debut, “And then Like Lions” (out Aug 12/ATO Records). Tickets for both shows will be available June 17th via Tickets West.
The Sunset Series will run once a month for a six part program. Developed in part by Liberty Theater Board members, Israel Nebeker and Darren Orange, the run of shows aims to bring a younger generation of concert go-ers together through a loose theme of “independent folk-pop-rock” music. Beverages will be made available from local breweries and wineries to make for a great alternative night out in Astoria. The Sunset Series has been made possible by generous donations from local supporters as well as an impending grant from the “Promote Astoria Fund.” To keep up on upcoming performances, see astoriasunsetseries.com.
