Battleme and Phantom Ships at Club 21

Vortex Music Magazine

Songwriter Matt Drenik celebrates the release of his second record early by sharing the Club 21 stage with Phantom Ships on March 1. Even better than a new Battleme record—the show's free!

Portland transplant via Austin, songwriter Matt Drenik is back with a new record—his second solo one under the moniker Battleme—on March 11, but he'll start celebrating the release of Future Runs Magnetic early by playing a free hometown show before opening for the Toadies and Supersuckers at the Wonder later in the month. Your first taste of FRM comes in the form of one of the quieter songs on the record. Going from delicate and soft to loud and back just before the end, "Nights On The Strand" has a slight Smashing Pumpkins feel to it.

And speaking of '90s alternative rock, this Club 21 party also features the debut of Phantom Ships, which is Steve Turner of Mudhoney and 12-string guitar fiddles.
