In a short statement on social media, the Pérola Negra Club, already fully recovered after last month’s flood, will welcome US Avalon Emerson on December 6, Friday. So far, the club has not provided further details on the lineup or tickets.

Avalon grew up in the desert area of ​​Arizona, although his house cannot be said to be arid at all. Inspired by the Detroit techno and adding a naturalistic and futuristic feel to it, its tracks are always expansive and well-designed, with clean melodies coupled with a propulsive rhythm.

She moved to San Francisco, her hometown, in 2009, where she started performing at house parties. In 2014 came the first physical release: the EP “Pressure / Quoi!”. Two EPs followed at Spring Theory and the first international sets: in Canada, Germany and Netherlands. In 2015, she moved to Berlin, where she has been a regular at Panorama Bar since then, performing in Europe, North America and Asia. The following year came full recognition with the EPs “Whities 006” and “Narcissus in Retrograde“. Her latest studio release dates to 2017: the EP “Whities 013”, the most futuristic and tribal of all Avalon productions.

This is Emerson’s second performance in Porto, after playing last year at NOS Primavera Sound. She also played at Lux Frágil and at Neopop and Semibreve festivals.
