Concert

FFO: Young the Giant, Fitz and the Tantrums, Neon Trees The first Spring days are hitting the city and hibernation season is over soon. Now, how do we get our sleepy limbs moving again? Well, I couldn’t think of a better way than by grooving with Saint Motel at Roseland Theater! The band embodies good […]

Echosmith – that name probably rings a bell!? Probably because you heard a couple of their tracks before, as it was nearly impossible to get by the alternative pop band’s hits “Cool Kids” and “Future Me” some 7 years ago. Good news: Echosmith are back on tour with their sophomore album Lonely Generation in their […]

I have seen many concerts of all kinds of genres, but I believe it is fair to say that Saturday had been my first ever rock show. Frankly, it took me a while but at least I am certain it will not be my last one because The Amazons and Dirty Honey were putting on […]

FFO: Circa Waves, Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Courteeners Ready for some explosive rock from Reading, UK? Lucky you! The Amazons are coming to Portland, playing Polaris Hall this Saturday, Feb. 22nd in support of Dirty Honey from Los Angeles. As lead-singer Matt put it: “We realised we’re a rock’n’roll band. It might not be […]

Mic Crenshaw and Quelle Chris opened the stage for main act Homeboy Sandman from NYC at Mississippi Studios on February 2nd. Mic Crenshaw was already on stage when we entered the venue. His necklace carried the outline of Africa, his words emotion and thoughts on everyday life in the US. We should stop looking at […]

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 […]
