Treefort: Blitzen Trapper Silences the Record Exchange

Posted By on Fri, Mar 23, 2012 at 10:28 PM

The Record Exchange crowd shuts their Blitzen Trappers.

The Record Exchange was packed by 6 p.m. as fans gathered for an intimate, acoustic show from Portland, Ore.-based band, Blitzen Trapper. Three of the five members, including front man Eric Earley, performed soulful folk songs armed with only a guitar, harmonica and their voices.

Fans sang along to the band's hit “Furr,” but for the most part were quietly listening. Earley commented on the timid crowd at one point saying, “Wow, you guys are quiet.”

The acoustic set ended with an a cappella rendition of Emmylou Harris’ “Sin City,” for which two of the members of The Parson Red Heads were brought on stage. Blitzen Trapper quickly packed up its gear and headed next door for its anticipated show at the Neurolux, where they were joined by The Parson Red Heads, Desert Noises, The Maldives and DJ Dug Martsch.
