As I climbed up the grungey stairwell of the parking structure my car was waiting for me in, I formed the expectations of what my night would be. The thing about house shows that makes it such a separation from venue shows is that you never know what to expect, whether you’re part of the […]
HAPPIP HALLOWEEN!! Today’s show was ~spoopy~ themed complete with creepy, hard garage rock songs and ones with eerie titles. I gave some last minute, cheap costume ideas to throw together if you don’t have a costume yet. If you’re looking for something to do tonight, every year at Burnside Skatepark there is a huge, wild […]
Bonjour mes petits amis! Today’s show was a spécial français, as an ode to my charming trip to Paris this summer. Started off with the banger Ca plane pour moi by Plastic Bertrand, followed by some classic upbeat Brigitte Bardot. Then, we added some beats in there with some remixes that added new twists to […]
Never outlive your energy to do what you love. Started off the night by playing a banger by Lizzie McGuire, then played some gnar garage/surf rock bands from Portland, LA and Australia. “Moose” by local to Portland’s Riled and “Eyes of the Muse” by King Tuff were played to give you a taste of some […]
After running into the members of The Garden at Goodwill this week, I played a song from the duo’s new album, Mirror Might Steal Your Charm. I also played a song from Enjoy, a Garden member’s side project. I also played some Tijuana Panthers, who played alongside The Garden at their Analog Café show this […]

Hello, sweet cherubs! Tonight, I talked about finally letting go of the toxic deadweight in your life (example: molding pumpkins from October) and the killer house show this weekend. To give you a taste of that show, I played “King Fling” from headliner Fire Nuns and “Record Store Babe” from Florida’s Ben Katzman’s Degreaser. Along […]
Yew! Started off the hour with “The Luck You Got” by The High Strung, a song most of you who watch the show Shameless probably recognize, but haven’t had a chance to appreciate in its entirety. I also played the fun “Meat Wallet” by local-to-Portland band Ladywolf. In honor of the event Burger-A-Go-Go held […]
