CROSS-POLLINATION CXXXIII - TUES MAR 13TH - 7:30-10 PM
NICK JAINA
DAN COSTELLO

Nick Jaina is a well-respected member of society in Portland, Oregon. When he drinks wine, he drinks white wine (although he recently discovered sulfite-free red wine.) He's a straight-shooter. He is a member of the rock band Binary Dolls, where he plays the Fender Rhodes and sings rock-type songs. On his own, he plays guitar and piano and sings yet more songs. He is lucky enough to have the cream of Portland's musical community play in his "solo" band, which has now grown to a revolving cast of perhaps ten or so people. Members of the bands Horse Feathers, Heroes & Villains, Point Juncture, WA and others are all in the revolving cast. Every live show is a different band and an entirely different experience.

Dan Costello is one bad ass mudda, who don't take no crap offa nobody. He also likes the movie Cool Runnings, and plays Folk Hop, which is acoustic hip hop at its folkiest..he also plays piano "like Randy Newman in a whorehouse at gunpoint." Someone smart and clever said that.

"Folk Hop Pioneer...leaves you wanting more, which is a good thing."
--Urban Folk

"This folk-rapper-poet is magically in-your-face in a pleasant way (but not too pleasant). Humorous social criticisms percolate tastily throughout his songs, a refreshing blast of lyrics in a songwriter climate of confessionals and narcissisms."
--Gabriel Levitt, jezebelmusic.com
