GET TICKETS HERE • Sunday, February 4th • Holocene
We are celebrating 14 years of DIY collectivism! Since 2010 the collective has been working together in an anarcho-syndicalist practice sharing resources, access to the means to produce and maintain full control and agency over the methods, direction and creative output of each member’s own labor and art. No lone straw holding the cup.
This also marks the return and first Yardsss ∅∀‡ show since Rx Fest in February of 2020. As with all SGC events this is a benefit for local PDX nonprofits. Profits from B14 go to Outside In and Sisters of the Road.
Additionally SGC will be collecting non-perishable food and cold weather supply donations during the event to distribute to our houseless neighbors. All are encouraged to bring any items they would like to donate and have distributed.
Yardsss ∅∀‡ • www.selfgroup.org/yardsss
"Regarding Yardsss: If you read about it before listening, you'd likely mistake it for a liberal arts master's thesis. Where most bands play "shows," Yardsss puts on "performance case studies" and multimedia installations, including a collection of songs inspired by—not covers of!—avant-garde composer John Cage. All this could be completely obnoxious except for one thing: Yardsss is transcendentally, earth-shatteringly gorgeous. If you can make music like that, you get to call your show a case study.
Glacial Fall • www.glacialfall.bandcamp.com
Glacial Fall is the collaborative effort of Jeremy Hooton and Heidi Elise Wirz, two earth humans from Portland, Oregon. Hyper aware of their own limited life spans and imminent mortality, these are recorded chronicles and visual artifacts of their lives. Sonically Glacial Fall currently consists of two bass players and an Elektron Octatrack.
Ellipsism • www.selfgroup.org/ellipsism
The solo project of Eli Savage, (Small Skies, Southerly, Yardsss) Ellipsism tries to capture the essence of a moment passed, a moment that no longer exists, the moments that will pass long after we become bones, and eventually stardust. Mixing dark textures of synthesizers, pianos, drum machines, and found sounds with the unison of a chorus of voices that exhort the heartache and uncertainty of the human experience, Ellipsism attempts to reassemble and share these sonically dense echoes of those stories passed and the stories that will be.

About Sisters of the Road • www.sistersoftheroad.org
Sisters of the Road exists to support low-income and houseless individuals through charitable and educational programs, including providing affordable, healthy, and delicious meals in a space that welcomes all to come dine with dignity. Sisters of the Road uses this space and other programs to build authentic relationships and alleviate the hunger of isolation in an atmosphere of nonviolence and gentle personalism that nurtures the whole individual, while seeking systemic solutions that reach the roots of homelessness and poverty in an attempt to end them.
About Outside In • www.outsidein.org
Since 1968, Outside In has supported youth experiencing homelessness and other marginalized people as they move toward improved health and self-sufficiency. Driven to meet the changing needs of those it helps, the agency has created an all-inclusive and integrated system of cutting edge and sometimes controversial wraparound services that has transformed and saved thousands of lives over the years.

Yardsss tends toward the dark and droning and bombastic, with heady, swelling orchestrations. Perhaps because human voices appear so rarely and the music is so evocative, it occasionally brings to mind Emeralds' Does It Look Like I'm Here? It doesn't take many listens to understand that Krueger is breaking boundaries not for the sake of being (or seeming) transgressive, but to make sounds that awaken actual feelings—uplifting, inspiring emotions. - Portland Mercury
The creative sign-up sheet, an effort to help promote and discover all of the amazing artistic endeavors by members of our creative community who happen to be participating as attendees for our events, was full for the (((Sound|Sight))) March 30th multidisciplinary event at The Projection Museum in Portland! The event included visual art from Heidi Elise Wirz, Leslie Dorcus and Krist Krueger, sound art from Healersss, Institute for Creative Dying and Masonique and visual by Cari Gummer.
