THE ABIGAILS (Los Angeles – Burger Records)
THE LONESOME BILLIES
JENNY DON’T & THE SPURS (feat. Sam Henry of Wipers)

 [synopsis: this is a distinctly different ‘flavor’ of show for The Know, and we’re very excited to be hosting it!  featuring “both kinds of music….COUNTRY and WESTERN” (name that quote!). we get a visit from Los Angeles ‘buzz’ band, THE ABIGAILS, who’ve been heralded as the second-coming of Lee Hazelwood. local support from honky-tonk/outlaw trio THE LONESOME BILLIES, and rockers-gone-country JENNY DON’T & THE SPURS, fronted by the siren-esque Jenny “Don’t” Connors and the emblematic percussive-work of Sam Henry of Wipers!]

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1st

CRIMINAL DAMAGE (Final Show!)
GAG (Olympia)
WILD MOHICANS

 [synopsis: CRIMINAL DAMAGE just released their long-awaited 3rd LP this past year, and have been a staple of Portland punk since 2006 (receiving gushing praise within underground-punk circles and publications since their inception).  a unique band within the local-scene, and early adopters/emulators of classic UK82 stylings of bands like Blitz and Partisans (whose ‘old-school’ street punk has recently become re-appropriated by a host of  bands…especially on the East Coast).  Criminal Damage are going out in grandiose fashion, and have lined-up pummeling openers GAG, and WILD MOHICANS to send them off into the atomic/post-apocalyptic sunset!!!]
