Portland punk heros THE TRIGGERS reunite for 2 nights only this week! Once was last night on Life During Wartime, recorded for your listening pleasure... (We'll put up more recent photos from the night as soon as Morgan posts them... this pic was taken in Seattle!) and they'll play next Saturday at Worksound, 820 SE Alder as a benefit for Dave Lieberman's medical bills... also with Sevarence Package from Chico (ex- Black Fork and Vomit Launch), Red Dons (Last Show before Doug moves to Chicago) and Salted City.

Welcome to episode 11, and the first 30-minute edition of Un-Herd archives. This one goes all the way back to January 26, 2009, featuring the spazz-jazz duet called Thicket. This band features the most frequently appearing guest of Un-Herd, drummer John Niekrasz, of notables such as Naked Future and Why I Must Be Careful. On alto saxophone we have Ben Kates, a long time collaborator with Niekrasz, in bands like Fly Fly Fly Fly Fly, and Naked Future. Ben is missed in the Portland avant-garde scene as of this retrospective while teaching elementary students in Alaska. With that, please enjoy, Thicket.
