Holocene Showcase May 22nd

In the last year and a half the Dropping Gems label has grown in size and evolved in scope, and nothing helps to illustrate this more than our most hallowed institution: the crew showcase. As in the past, we’re taking over a venue and filling the night top-to-bottom with DG performers, presenting a bird’s eye view of one of the most exciting electronic music collectives to come out of the Northwest (so far) this decade. Naturally this showcase is our biggest yet, featuring 9 acts sharing the stage at Portland’s legendary Holocene. Expect fresh new sets from Bone Rock, DJAO, Citymouth, Ghost Feet, Brownbear, Natasha Kmeto, The Great Mundane, Timeboy, and Rap Class, as well as the special return of Gumar and his Magical Midi Band. If you’ve been to a DG showcase before, you can expect the same thing you saw last time, which is, as you probably already know, something completely-utterly-satisfyingly-&-reassuringly new.
