What kind of Northwest do we experience in the elegant pop techno of the Flavr Blue? In the tunes by this trio (Hollis Wong-Wear, Lace Cadence, and Parker Joe), which has its roots in 206 hiphop, we see our city and region as a home for a kind of melancholy that’s not so much about being alone or longing for a lover but about having a lover one can’t fully connect with. This kind of Northwest melancholy also captures the sense that, even if the affair is working out, even if there is a connection, the happiness is as fleeting as cherry blossoms.
This concert is part of the Out to Lunch series.
