Preview: AU at The Tree Bar

From the August 2, 2012 edition

Portland experimentalists AU make bold, bright music. It is complex, but it is not subtle. On the new “Both Lights,” which manages to be moody and frenetic at once, they approximate precocious kids putting the “cray” back in “crayons.”

That widescreen splatter comes to Tree Bar on Monday, where fellow Portland combo Tu Fawning and local cats Forest & the Evergreens round out an enticing bill.
