Shook Twins

It's that time of year when hordes of twenty-somethings start sharing rides to remote locations – music festival season. This Memorial Day weekend it's the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington. But Sasquatch is one of many – many – festivals yet to come. Too, many, in fact? Jessica Robinson wondered how many festivals the music industry can handle.

Forget shows in clubs and concert halls. Some bands now spend long stretches of their summer just hopping from one grassy lawn to another. Take the Northwest's homegrown indie rock band Modest Mouse.

Identical twins Laurie & Katelyn Shook return to the KLCC studios for a live performance, along with songwriter John Craigie, and band members Niko Dauossis and Kyle Volkman. They celebrate two nights of concerts at Sam Bond's Garage in Eugene, on Wednesday December 3rd and Thursday December 4th.  Musical and philosophical topics included spraying dollar bills with water, people who claim to have written Bob Dylan's lyrics, and what the bathroom situation might have been like on Noah's Ark.

Identical twins Laurie and Katelyn Shook are celebrating the release of the new Shook Twins CD, What We Do, with a performance at the McDonald Theatre in Eugene on Friday, May 2nd. They dropped by the KLCC studios to perform a few songs, along with Anna Tivel on violin and Niko Dauossis on mandolin (on Niko's birthday). A good time was had by all, especially with the magnifying glass.
