STRFKR, Oregon’s sensational indie rock artists are bringing their signature sounds to Newport Music Hall!
STRFKR was formed in Portland in 2007 as a solo project by vocalist and multi instrumentalist Joshua Hodges. He would soon turn the project into a band by recruiting Shawn Glassford (bass, keyboards, drums), Keil Corcoran (drums, keyboards, vocals), and Patrick Morris, (guitar, keyboard, vocals). They initially called themselves Starfucker and Josh explained why in an interview: "I was around all these people who were kind of douchey, the kind of people I would never hang out with, and one of them bragged about being a 'starfucker.' I thought, 'Who are these people? What is this world?' That's why I chose the name: because it represented all I didn't want to be a part of, all I didn't want to do. So it does hold us back, but that was the point, originally.” The name was shortened to STRFKR in 2012 and Patrick left the band that year to make it a trio. Their musical style falls under the genres of indie rock, electropop, neo psychedelia, and Josh describes it as “dance music that you can actually listen to, that's good pop songs, but also you can dance to it.” They’ve had a stellar career with 5 studio albums, 4 extended plays, and 7 singles.
