Showmen’s Rest— the indie-rock brainchild of Portland Renaissance man Jimmy Dority— presents an immersive multimedia experience featuring songs of hurt, hope, and healing. Conceived in the isolated tumult of lockdown, the band’s forthcoming album Porch Talk features songwriter Jimmy Dority with a supporting cast of musicians— Mike Effenberger, Nick Phaneuf, Alex Ouellette, and Anthony Branca. For this special performance, they are joined by visual artist Stu Dias for a fully staged multi-movement show with video, animation, and set design. This wide-spanning theatrical exploration presents music that mines the heart in search of connection, meaning, and peace in dark times.
