On Monday, July 17th, Lone Fir Cemetery brought the house down with their album release show, featuring supporting bands Log Lady and Gated Community. With the combination of new songs played at Little Haus PDX, Monday night was a recipe for success for the band, who delivered an extraordinarily refreshing performance. Technically skilled, artistically skilled, and lyrically skilled, Lone Fir Cemetery is a triple threat to Portland underground music.
Lone Fir Cemetery remain the protagonists of the Portland DIY music scene with their explosive performances and illustrious sound. They encapsulate the power of the DIY community—magnetically bonding people together, proving that any artist is capable of making, producing, and performing art. At a Lone Fir Cemetery show, you’re not just an audience member or a fan, you’re a part of their performance art. As you feel the soul of their music surging through your body, you can’t help but feel a spark of inspiration coursing through your veins.
Since 2019, Lone Fir Cemetery has been working on their debut album, “Meet Your Antagonist”, which was released on July 17th, 2023. This album breaks barriers with its storytelling, which is told in four chapters of euphonious indie-disintegration sounds. Lone Fir Cemetery manages to not only perform these songs live with heart but relay that same essence in the studio for those of us listening at home. Whether you’re up close and personal at one of their DIY shows, or streaming the album in your car, the spirit of their music remains identical.
In a sea of up-and-coming artists, Lone Fir Cemetery stands out in every single aspect. To call them inspiring is truly an understatement. Catch them before they’re gone on August 14th or 16th, and stream their new album “Meet Your Antagonist” which is out on all platforms now!
