Live at the Bross – Damien Jurado
with special guest Chris Pureka
August 2, 2022
The Bross Hotel is thrilled to present the next in an intimate concert series with independent music stalwart Damien Jurado, whose prolific songwriting has stood the test of time with unassuming grace. Damien’s 25+ year career has ranged from his early releases on the iconic Sub Pop record label in the 1990s to his 17th (and soon to be 18th) studio album on his own Maraqopa Records, and he continues to enthrall with stories populated by ghosts, killers, cruel lovers, and the occasional UFO cult or false messiah. His past collaborations include Richard Swift of The Shins and The Black Keys, Moby, Dolorean, Josh Tillman, and English dance music group Faithless.
Opening for Damien is Portland-based Chris Pureka, whose versatile melding of folk, Americana and indie rock genres has garnered comparisons to Chan Marshall, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. Over many years of touring on both sides of the Atlantic she has shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as The Lumineers, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Cowboy Junkies, Haley Heynderickx, and Ani DiFranco.
