ASTORIA — Giants In The Trees, along with Brian Bovenizer & The New Old Stock, will perform at Astoria’s historic Liberty Theatre 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 30. Tickets for reserved seating are $20.
“The members of Giants in the Trees, which formed a year ago after an open call for a local jam, all share a common appreciation of their natural Wahkiakum County surroundings.
The band — composed of famed Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, operatic singer Jillian Raye, slinky guitarist Ray Prestegard, and groovy drummer Erik Friend — also has a great deal of musical chemistry.
According to Novoselic in an interview with the Seattle Stranger, “We were the only four who showed up (for the jam),’” he said, laughing. “But we wasted no time. We started making songs. I laid down that riff for ‘Sasquatch,’ and we were off.”
