Concert

It was my first concert attended at Crystal Ballroom and yet again I entered a venue, surprised how much bigger the room turned out to be from what I had expected coming into the building. That seems to be a theme in Portland: Impressive venues hiding behind unflashy facades. Something similar could be said about […]

FFO: Kikagaku Moyo, Dolphin Midwives Minami Deutsch crushes negativity, sorrow, and depressive energy. It’s their first time doing that in North America, in support of their EP Can’t Get There as a follow up and extension of 2018’s With Dim Light. They combine the best of psychedelic music with a delicate touch of Japanese music tradition. On their […]

Only shortly after Ned and I got to the Bunk Bar, Cat Clyde came in from her van to join us. She had spent 11 hours on the road that day, which made it even more special that she agreed to do the interview. Since the Bunk Bar doesn’t have a backroom, we found ourselves […]

FFO: Valerie June, Angus & Julia Stone, Julia Jacklin Arguably one of the most exciting voices of her time: Cat Clyde comes with a unique style and sound. With two full-length albums Ivory Castanets and her newly released Hunters Trance, the Canadian artist from Stratford, Ontario is making her way across the USA and Canada […]

Three bands in one night – a long, yet highly entertaining one with Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside. What an exciting evening! Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside played their first show in a long time with their original line-up of Sallie Ford, Jeff Munger, Ford Tennis and Tyler Tornfelt. An image hard to […]

FFO: Courtney Barnett, Alabama Shakes, Shakey Graves Sallie Ford is a Portland icon, her music carries the attitude and feel of the city. All that makes it hard to believe she wasn’t born a local but moved here around ten years ago from North Carolina. Shortly after she came to Portland, she met Tyler Tornfelt, […]

“Noah Gundersen is an American indie folk singer-songwriter from Seattle”, is the description one finds when looking up his name on the internet. That must have been true for previous albums, as his newest release Lover from August 23rd of 2019 seems far from being a folk album. It still has a folky side to […]

Infected Mushroom played at the Roseland Theater on Friday November 8th. They have been touring for about 20 years. My dad introduced me to IM and since then I’ve been a fan of theirs. The show began with Randy Seidman’s DJ set. About an hour into the show he swapped with LOWSH. After that OPTIKOS […]

FFO: Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch, Peter Bradley Adams The Brother Brothers: Identical twins David and Adam Moss honor contemporary aches with the nostalgic tenderness of another time on their debut full-length album, Some People I Know, which was released October 19, 2018 on Compass Records. Their palpably fraternal stage presence and wonderfully familiar heart have earned repute among a modern folk scene. Having […]

The Smashing Pumpkins first tour in nearly 20 years made their Portland appearance on Saturday August 25th. Heavily touring in the early 90s through the first part of 2000s they have a seamless stadium show that lasts over 3 hours. Guitarist James Iha debuting a fabulous pimp worthy white suit warned the audience of the […]
