Tonight the Moondoggies/Quiet Life tour comes to a close with a show in Portland, the home base of Quiet Life. The two bands crossed the nation in unison, both as friends and as bands with musically similar identities. Two weeks ago, we caught the tour at Rock Shop and posted the Moondoggies recording last week. The opening set that night at Rock Shop was a revelation. Quiet Life write compelling songs with a strong dose of Americana. The vocalist Sean Spellman has a natural stage presence and the band’s excellent musicianship also shines live. The band released their new album Big Green the same week as this show, and the new songs were prominently featured in the setlist, including the extended jam of the set closing “Nighttime” (streaming below).

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Moondoggies set from the same night and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
