The latter two acts also hail from Portland, Oregon, like headliners Typhoon (who are signed to the Pacific Northwest label Tender Loving Empire). The trio of bands are setting down in Santa Barbara while on their Fall 2011 “BFF Tour.”
Fresh from appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and National Public Radio, but equally at home at area venues like Isla Vista’s Biko Garage (where the group has built up an avid local following), Typhoon combines indie-rock elements with horns, trumpets, violins, cellos and more. Call it “Big Band” music for the do-it-yourself generation.The Savoy is at 409 State Street in downtown Santa Barbara. This event is 18+ and is co-sponsored by Mutiny Studios.
