For an update on the band's tour schedule, visit


“Despite not having a record label or major national press, Mipso have been performing to growing audiences across the country — mostly through word-of-mouth. Their new album, ‘Old Time Reverie,’ came out on Oct. 2 to widespread acclaim ... it's the proverbial big step forward for them, as they take traditional tools and structures and use them to enrich a thoughtful, provocative exploration of the contradictions and complexities of their own southern heritage.” Catch them Wednesday, Dec. 9, at the River City Saloon. River City Saloon, 207 Cascade Ave., Hood River; 541-387-2583.
