‘Aberdeen’ is an experimental song cycle from the creative force behind the intricate pop band Lost Lander. In 2008, Matt Sheehy, a forester in addition to a songwriter, took a job in Kurt Cobain’s hometown. Living in a run-down, remote cabin, he soon became entangled with an eccentric local couple. Those experiences are now a one-man, musical storytelling performance that Sheehy describes “as a rock concert, meets The Moth, meets The Twilight Zone.” Told through song and spoken word and accompanied by live-action and animated projections by Stefan Nadelman, ‘Aberdeen’ is also Lost Lander’s third studio album, which features contributions from bandmate Sarah Fennell, Drew Shoals (Train), Brent Knopf (EL VY, Menomena), Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie), Scott Magee (Ural Thomas & the Pain), Dana Bouy (Akron/Family), and Justin Miller. “Gathering together for transformative experiences isn’t possible right now,” Sheehy writes in announcing his debut of the live stream version of ‘Aberdeen’ on June 11, 13 and 14. “Finding outlets for creative expression and maintaining financial stability are major challenges right now. Independent live performance venues are struggling right now. In light of that, we’re offering live performance venues the ability to sell tickets to our donated live stream of ‘Aberdeen,’ reimagined and adapted for the medium. Tickets are pay-what-you will and all donations will go entirely to the venue you choose.” Click the link below to find a list of Portland- and Seattle-area live music or theater venues you can choose from. All donations will go directly to that venue.
