Point Juncture, WA Kicks Off Outdoor Summer Concert Series to Benefit Mercy Corps

Event Date: 
June 27, 2009 - 18:30

SakeOne has a terrific lineup for its Outdoor Summer Concert Series, and Point Juncture, WA will open the series on June 27. Their 2008 album "Heart to Elk" was among the year's best-received albums out of Portland.

This year, SakeOne will donate 20% of ticket sales for its Outdoor Summer Concert Series to Mercy Corps. So you can benefit Mercy Corps as you enjoy sake, have fun with friends, and hear some of the Northwest's favorite bands on beautiful Northwest summer nights.

For five years Point Juncture, WA has been a collaboration between four Portland songwriters, instrumentalists, recording engineers, and friends: Amanda Spring (vocals, drums) Victor Nash (keyboards, vocals) Skyler Norwood (guitar, vibraphone) and Wilson Vediner (guitar). The band has enjoyed success at countless local shows, has undertaken jaunts across the country, generated a pair of self-released recordings and an identity as one of Portland’s most consistent acts to stand proudly beneath the banner of indie rock.

With the release of "Heart to Elk," Point Juncture, WA made Portland, OR sit up and take notice. Along with their captivating live presence, the album radiates with the soft sound of elegantly assembled tunes, the product of a very close-knit outfit of friends and bandmates. The stage seems a sacred place for PJWA, and they disappear into themselves upon taking it, becoming vessels for the music.

The SakeOne Outdoor Summer Concert Series will take place every other Saturday, rain or shine, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from June 27 through August 29 at 820 Elm Street, Forest Grove, Oregon.

Ticket prices vary, but the Point Juncture, WA show on June 27 costs $8 for general admission, and $5 for students, club members, and shareholders. Tickets can be bought on SakeOne's website or at the door.
