Ya, so this is another one of those weeks where the joys of radio station management prevented me from actually looking up many shows. There is the second night of Yo La Tengo at Wonder Ballroom (Oct 19th) that you could still catch! (Do remember though, as I found out last night, there is no […]

FFO: Broken Social Scene, Built To Spill, Joan of Arc, Pavement, Dinosaur Jr. On Monday and Tuesday, New Jersey experimental indie-rockers take to the stage at Wonder Ballroom. Yo La Tengo are a rare example of a band that has managed to stay true to a clear artistic vision over an extended period – decades, […]

This week was the 50th episode of Real Soon in Rose City! (In only two-and-a-half years of hosting a supposedly weekly show 50 seems a good effort… ) To celebrate we brought back Punk, Post-Punk, or No Punk and, of course, for this game we need a certain Welshman called Alsadair. He makes a triumphant […]

This Friday just gone was the first Real Soon in Rose City show back in the booth! To celebrate I forgot to prepare a show so this was one of those weeks where I just played the best tracks by the best bands (that are not necessarily playing Portland soon). We also hear from John, […]

FFO: The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Smiths, Built To Spill, Sonic Youth Buy tickets On September 11th, longtime Portland post-punk/indie-rock/shoegaze band The Prids celebrate the reissue their first two albums 2003’s Love Zero and 2006’s Until The World is Beautiful with a show at the Doug Fir Lounge supported by The Upsidedown and Koalra.

Plenty to go out and see, but don’t forget those vax cards…. Here are the upcoming events featured on this week’s show: Gogol Bordello: August […]

This week the show that plays you all the best tracks by all the best bands coming to Portland soon is, well, actually doing that again! There’s finally enough shows to pretty much a make a playlist out of them (with a little help from some new singles). Here’s what’s coming up Olivia Awbrey, Shaylee: […]

This week most of the shows are not really even in Rose City – they’re in Boise, Idaho for the Treefort Music Festival (Sep. 22-26). There are more Rose City shows getting announced and successfully rescheduled though – here’s the ones mentioned on this week’s show: Gogol Bordello: Aug 29 @ Crystal Ballroom Olivia Awbrey: […]

Many of us at KSPU remember SANDS from Sight & Sound event last November (wow, an in-person show?) Nina Bielawski’s roots go much deeper at PSU as the band’s leader and Viking alumni. Their set got us all on the dance floor with their blend of garage punk energy and easy to listen to surf […]

After an extended hiatus, Real Soon in Rose City (just like live, in-person music) is back! This week there’s the announcement of a few shows including Atomic Mamma @ Cully Park on Saturday (July 18th), Gogol Bordello @ the Crystal Ballroom on Aug 29th and, of course, the Jazz Festival this weekend in Cathedral Park […]
