Buffalo Gap - Portland - Kris and Zach Acoustic - With Sharlet Crooks!

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.

Dantes - Portland - OPENING FOR dada!

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!
