Must Sea to Sea: Angus & Julia Stone

Please enjoy the first edition of Must Sea to Sea. :// A blog post that will shine a light on shows taking place in Portland from artists based overseas.
[This type of post is needed in the musically saturated city of Portland, where hundreds of amazing shows take place every night.  Though many of them are worth the time and money, there are shows worthy of being selected from the bunch, simply because the artist won't be around again any time soon. It then becomes a rare opportunity. ]
Angus & Julia Stone (Australia) - Aladdin Theater
Weds, Oct 13th - 8pm - $12 advance, $15 day of show

First, listen to the strings in this beautiful song (video below), look at their amazing hair, and then buy tickets when I tell you that they're
playing with full accompaniment at the The Aladdin Theater, one of Portland's most intimate, acoustic-friendly historical theaters.  (STRINGS!! OMG!!) This bro and sis duo just released their new album Down The Way in March. In just 2 months, it became the highest-selling album by an Australian artist in 2010. They have completed their first worldwide tour with all dates selling out and for the remainder of 2010, the siblings will be travelling around the world for festivals and their second worldwide tour.
This is your chance, kids. If you're a fan of this sort of music, it's going to be one of those shows you remember all your life.
