World Kindness Day


Performing at Genos Rock Club with Project VII and Bukura

Hoboe will perform atGenos Rock Club, 625 Congress St. with alt-rockers Project VII and heavy blues-rockers Bukura, on Saturday, November 13 which has been designated "World Kindness Day," to promote more kindness around the world. The show starts at 10 pm, doors open at 9 pm. Admission is $6, 21+.

World Kindness Day was established by the World Kindness Movement along with a Declaration of Kindness with a mission to inspire individuals towards greater kindness and to connect nations to create a kinder world.. "In acknowledgment of the fundamental importance of simple human kindness, ...we pledge to join together to build a kinder and more compassionate world."

This will be Hoboe's third time sharing a show with Project VII and second billing with Bukura. "The Project VII guys are real kind guys," says Hoboe's Zen Ben, "and Timmy Gangbang from Bukura can be kind of kind sometimes, too."

Attendees are urged to bring a heightened sense of compassion and understanding and to be expressive with their acts of kindness. Gestures such as hugging, holding hands, giving compliments and buying friends (and the bands) courtesy beers are all highly encouraged!
Hoboe will ring in the next day at midnight with some mean riffs, bad ass beats and maddening jams, but kindness will still be encouraged and/or tolerated.






"They don't just dare to be different, they rock it out." --Todd M. Richard, Portland Magazine

Hoboe is a new rock paradigm featuring amplified oboe and various odd and end bizarre eccentricities in a genre-bending steam train to your strangest desires.

Oboe is centerpiece to a cross-rock sound with hints of metal, punk, classic, psychedelic, jazz, alternative, folk, grunge, prog and pop. A 21st century post-rock Jethro Tull.
