The House of Sarcasm #35 – Music Made in PDX

Written by on February 22, 2019

Today I played music discovered on a Ranker list of “Famous Bands From Portland.” Although they are considered famous, I have personally never heard of a lot of these bands until I put together this playlist. Are they new for you too? What does it even mean to be “famous” in Portland anyway?

I guess it’s cool that we live in a town with so many bands that a DJ who only plays local music can go almost a year without having heard of a bunch of local bands that are considered famous. I kind of tend to live in an underground bubble. Next week we will dive back into that, I think.

Thanks for going on this adventure with me, by the way! Join me next Friday, March 1 as we celebrate the ONE YEAR anniversary of this show!

Here are some upcoming events:

Chris Newman Deluxe Combo / Atomic Rust / Misery Men – Fri. Feb. 22 at Dante’s
