“PigWar finds its roots in the haze of smoked-out ’70s blues and rock clubs, melding classic rock ‘n’ roll and R&B with current psych-era twists into an electric blend all its own. The return of Ropeadope Records artist/producer Teddy Presburg to Portland two years ago quickly revived a long-dormant collaboration with folk artist and frontman Garrett Brennan, whose revivalist energy commands not fire and brimstone but sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. Live, PigWar rounds out Presburg’s multi-instrumental psych-jazz with an impressive band that includes 1939 Ensemble’s Josh Thomas and David Coniglio. They’re sharing the bill with fellow soul revivalists Brownish Black, so this is a night for fans of in-your-face, down-‘n’-dirty soul.”
