Boomslang: Grails came together decade ago while playing with other bands

Much like the music they create, some bands come together almost by chance. For instance, take Grails, which will be among the many featured acts at this weekend's Boomslang festival. A critically heralded instrumental ensemble with a sound that often suggests prog-laced psychedelia, its members came together a decade ago as moonlighters from other bands (Holy Sons and Om among them) within a fertile Portland, Ore., music scene.
