This isn’t your Mom’s music. All bad jokes aside, eccentric Portland-based experimental rock trio Menomena will be releasing their fifth album, Moms, next week.
Before signing with Barsuk Records for their third full-length release, they signed on with High Road Touring - based out of our hometown, San Francisco. This might explain the frequent visits to our city when they’re on the road and why most of their live performance recordings in the Internet Archive were taken at popular SF venues.
Menomena reached public consciousness with their 2007 debut, Friend and Foe, for Barsuk and the tour that followed was extensive and heavily documented. Below is a torrent of a performance taken at the infamous music venue, Cafe Du Nord:
