Valleyheart Marble

July 19 at 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

On Friday, July 19th the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes Valleyheart, Marble, Bowl Peace, [glazier], and Mothra to the WOW Hall.


Art should incite conversation not only with our friends, family, and loved ones, but within ourselves as well. Valleyheart inspire internal and external dialogue through layers of cinematic alternative rock, lyrical eloquence, and dynamic vocals. The Massachusetts trio—Kevin Klein [vocals, guitar, producer], Chris Babbitt [bass], and Zakk Nix [drums]—might just make you ponder love and life a little more closely with their second full-length album, Heal My Head [Tooth & Nail Records]. The group canvas the biggest and smallest corners of emotions alike, which has garnered them millions of streams and acclaim from American Songwriter, FLOOD, Vanyaland, and more.

“At an individual and communal level, we deal with trauma and unsettling questions of our identity and existence,” Kevin observes. “From a lyrical perspective, I wrote this album to talk about and unwrap those things in my own life and relationships. When you open this door, there’s a lot of pain to sift through, so I’m trying to create a language for listeners to have those conversations. I hope it’s a platform for people, so they don’t feel alone as they go through life.”

Valleyheart continue to build an emotional bond with audiences everywhere. Following the 2017 Nowadays EP, they deepened this connection with their debut album, Everyone I’ve Ever Loved, in 2018. “Friends In The Foyer” eclipsed 877K Spotify streams as the band took home “Rock Artist of the Year” at the 2019 Boston Music Awards. On its heels, the Scenery EP arrived to widespread acclaim. FLOOD noted, “they explore powerful, accessible soundscapes in an adequately sized package, and Substream Magazine hailed them as “equal parts boldness and beauty.Throughout 2020 and 2021, they assembled what would become Heal My Head at sessions at The Halo Studio in Portland, ME with longtime collaborator and co-producer Kevin Billingslea and at The Record Company in Boston, MA. Kevin Billingslea and Kevin Klein co-engineered, co-produced, and co-mixed the album, with a portion of the record being self-produced by Klein at his home studio.




Catapulted by their debut LP in 2022, MARBLE continues to turn heads with a sound that is entirely theirs. Since its release, MARBLE have frequented countless major cities on several tours, delivering a raw and captivating stage performance from Vancouver, BC to Tucson, AZ. Their dynamic and unforgettable shows leave fans screaming, “I can’t get it out of my head”.

The songs on MARBLE’s upcoming EP represent the artistry of the band as a collective. Produced & mixed by Andy D. Park (Deftones, Death Cab for Cutie, Deep Sea Diver) & mastered by Greg Calbi & Steve Fallone (The Strokes, Briston Maroney, Metric, St. Vincent), this EP is the first to be recorded by the full band, live and in-studio. The lyrics cut deeper, the instrumentation burns brighter, and the melodies are earworms that you’ll remember until you play them again. These songs will carry you from bubblegum inspired dreamo like their contemporaries Pool Kids & Sweet Pill, to stadium rock hooks like that of Mitski & Paramore.

MARBLE are a bi-city band based in Seattle and Portland.




Bowl Peace

Without further ado, meet the all-student indie rock band coming out of the University of Oregon: Bowl Peace. With Elizabeth Bailey sitting on the drums, Holden Hunt strumming the guitar, Owen Akiyama slapping the bass and Elise Benton providing the vocals, they band together to create fun, catchy music for everyone to enjoy.

Bowl Peace was a somewhat recent venture. They all met and started making music in November 2022. Holden, in his own words, was the “Nick Fury” of their beginnings. He — like Samuel L. Jackson in the Marvel Universe — recruited everyone, adhered to individual talents and skills and formed a band that was destined to be together.




Eugene musician Derek Sibert identifies as synesthetic, meaning that when he hears music, he sees colors. He sings, plays bass and is the primary songwriter in a new Eugene post-prog and indie-rock trio called [glazier].

Sibert played with the Portland and Eugene-based instrumental post-rock band called Childspeak, and he carries much of that sensibility into [glazier].

He left Childspeak in 2019 and needed a new songwriting project to occupy his time. Shortly before the pandemic hit, he brought the songs to Srack and Andrews, and without the pressure of playing live shows, they decided to record the EP in Andrews’ tricked-out drummer’s garage. The band worked up about a dozen pieces, whittling them down to just five songs. This no deadline approach was a relief for Sibert.




Avant-garde indie rock from Eugene.
