Modest Mouse are coming to Eugene. The 8-member band, currently based in Portland, are known for their rich musical textures and clever, catchy lyrics.
Freelance writer and volunteer blogger Cynthia Orlando writes about local music, music that KRVM listeners may also want to listen to.
Cynthia grew up in southern California where both her parents were musicians. While attending forestry school in northern California's Humboldt County she began reviewing music for entertainment publication "Northcoast View," and began writing again in 2009 for Portland's KINK-FM and announcer Dave Scott's blog.
She's formerly written for Music Under Fire, an Indie music website, and has her own music blog. In addition to her writing for KRVM she also writes for another non-profit station, Portland Radio Project in Portland.
Besides music, Cynthia's other passions include urban forestry, REIKI and travel - especially in Europe. She has a special fondness for bands from the U.K. and the Pacific Northwest; her favorite travel fantasy is getting to the Glastonbury Festival to cover the many outstanding artists there.
