Zach and Andrew participated in this last year and it was a great night that we were honored to be a part of. We'll be back this year with a couple of songs, maybe full band, maybe duos, we'll see! Come celebrate the music of CC with us, one of the most powerful influences on all of us in Purusa.
We'll be doing an hour set at Make Music Day PDX! Free, all ages, music, a river, a park, what more do you want?!

We're back at Al's Den to help support another amazing local artist and our friends, Pretty Gritty, during their Al's Den Residency.

So much crab, so much seafood, so much wine, so much Kris. Kris will be playing a solo acoustic performance on the Exhibit Hall Stage from 5:30-7:45pm on Saturday night, April 28th (if he has not already been hospitalized for excess crab and wine inhalation). Our buddie's, Mbrascatu, are playing a set earlier in the day on the same stage, so get there early to check them out for sure.
Hope to see you there!

It's divey, it's loud, the food is freaking delicious, it's perfect. We love a sweaty small stage show at Slims. This is a great place and a favorite in St. Johns. Make sure you come with an appetite cuz you don't want to miss the eats here. We go on at 11pm, just after Echopurr, and will play until we're thrown out.

Kris and Zach are back for another Acoustic set at The Buffalo Gap. They'll be playing songs from Repair, Soundtrack, Spectacle, and lots of unreleased new and old stuff. This show will feature an opening set by Sharlet Crooks!
AND IT'S FREE. NO COVER CHARGE!!!
These Acoustic shows are how Purusa got started, as a duo. Each song kind of gets a new life and a different perspective when stripped down to just guitars and vocals. Here's a video of Kris and Zach doing a tribute to Chris Cornell from the last Buffalo Gap show:
Hope to see you there! We'll be upstairs in the annex where the drinks are strong, the food delicious and the servers are beautiful. Make sure you get there early and don't miss the set by Sharlet Crooks. Sharlet Crooks is a project Zach is involved in with a very talented local singer songwriter you don't want to miss.

We could not be more stoked about this show. Opening for dada back in 2003 at the Roseland was one of Purusa's favorite moments ever. We almost can't believe we get to do it again. If you think you've never heard dada, you have. And if you really haven't, I'm sorry. You have been severely deprived. One of our favorite bands, great songwriters and performers. You do not want to miss this show!
350 W Burnside St
Opening for dada!
Show starts at 9pm
Kris and Zach will be playing a full night of Purusa music from 9 to midnight. We'll play old stuff, middle stuff, new stuff, stuff you've never heard, stuff you wish you'd never heard, covers, everything. And there is NO COVER CHARGE!
