Fur Coats, Smokey Brights to rock Space Craft stage

The Fur Coats and Smokey Brights will headline a doubleheader concert on the Space Craft stage at Rolling Bay Hall from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 2.

Tickets, $12 in advance and $15 at the door, are on sale at www.spacecraftpresents.org.

The Fur Coats are a psych/soul/pop band from Portland, Oregon fronted by Chris Karl and Betty. Their lineup includes members of Wampire, Charlie Hilton and Reptaliens.

A swaggering live act, the Fur Coats have gained a considerable local following since their inception some five years ago. Following the self-release of their EP “Desperate,” the band has been getting considerable local radio play, was featured on the PDX POP NOW! compilation and music festival, and toured Europe in the spring of 2017.

They are currently mixing and mastering a new set of singles to be released in the upcoming year.

The second album from Smokey Brights is both a rebirth and a milestone, a head trip and a body high, meticulously crafted but natural as daylight.

The music taps into history and stretches out a kind of visionary rock that rolls relentlessly forward while recombining iconic sounds— prog, funk, Bowie, Styx, Wilco, Flaming Lips — into something urgent and fun and utterly surprising.

What else do you need to know?

Two singers (married), a guitar hero some call Keanu J. Fox, and a crack rhythm section with veteran status.

Since their 2014 debut, “Taste for Blood,” Smokey Brights have amassed a rabid base of fans across the West Coast, gaining momentum with every show. They are a self-started, self-sustaining rock n roll machine that generates maximum joy through musical communion.

Rolling Bay Hall is at 10598 Northeast Valley Road.
