Taking place Halloween weekend, the 2nd annual Into The Shadows festival - yes, the sibling fest to April's Out From The Shadows - will this year serve a double function. At its core an event devoted to talent from the Pacific Northwest (including Alaska this year!), Into The Shadows II is also set to commemorate the 40-year anniversary of Year Zero, AKA 1979, which also happens to be the year your host flew to London just for the music (and OK, adventure, and penury, as it happened).
With that in mind, this year, topping each night's bill of regional artists, will be a 1979-based tribute band.
To wit, on Friday night, Nov 1st, Portland's incomparable Siouxsie band Bad Juju (feat. Max and Natalie from Vueltas and Eric from Miss Rayon), followed Saturday night by Seattle's amazing Joy Division band She's Lost Control.
