Indie rock band Blind Pilot is set to play this Saturday at The Stache. Formed in Portland Oregon by college friends Israel Nebeker and Ryan Dobrowski, Blind Pilot broke onto the scene in 2008 with the release of their debut album 3 Rounds and a Sound. The single "Go On, Say It " was selected by iTunes as a single of the week. The album would subsequently climb the Billboard album charts reaching number thirteen.  

During the creation of the debut album, Nebeker and Dobrowski embarked on what they called a "bike tour". taking them by bicycle from Vancouver to San Diego with stops to play shows and sell EPs. Following the success of their debut, the duo expanding to a six-piece, adding a lushness of their sound for the follow-up album, 2011's We are the Tide.  It would be another five years for the band to release their follow-up And Then Like Lions, which hit number seven on the Billboard alternative charts. 

 

The Blind Pilot duo is joining Moose live in-studio in the noon hour of our Saturday fund drive.
