Check out episode 21 of The Penny Jam, order filmed in a woodshop near 17th and Powell in Portland Oregon. Our friend Ken Tomita hosted, allowing a band and crew to set up in his place. Ken is a woodworker who works mostly with bamboo, and has some really great peices. His blog is also a great resource for the indie scoop on whats going on in the world of furniture design in Portland.

The band we featured was Celilo, a Sasparilla-drenched Alt-Psych-Americana outfit who sound something like Neil Young dropped in Oregon country. They performed “Little Coquette” off of their recently released album Bending Mirrors, which is available on CD Baby. I’ve listened to it 8 times at work in the last few weeks. I can already tell it’s going to be one of those albums that came out of nowhere and stuck to me. Spoiler! It may be one of my new favorite local albums
