PALO VERDE (Portland, OR) is an all female, psychedelic, sludge-rock duo comprised of Lauren K. Newman (LKN) on drums and Terrica Kleinknecht on guitar. They have been actively performing throughout the U.S. and Northwest since 2006.

Palo Verde initially formed as experimental double-drum duo "Stickitin" but evolved into the current guitar/drums incarnation. They have performed extensively in the Northwest and have embarked on several U.S. tours, sharing the stage with bands such as Jucifer, Thrones, Black Elk, Japanther, and Kusikia.

Palo Verde have self-released several albums recorded in their home studio. They released their first official CD, History for the Rest of Eternity (recorded to 2" tape at Type Foundry by Lauren K. Newman), in May of 2010 on their own Drunken Beagle Records. Palo Verde  toured in support of History for the Rest of Eternity in Summer/Fall of 2010. Palo Verde's current discography includes a split 7" with Hot Victory and a track on 12" vinyl compilation album with five other bands for We Made These Records (both released Fall of 2010). The band's epic recording, Zero Hour, will be released Summer 2011 on Phratry Records (Cincinnati, OH). Engineered by Christina Files (drummer for Victory At Sea and Mary Timony; recording engineer for Tara Jane O'Neil, Shipping news; live sound for Shellac).
