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 […]

Smashing Pumpkins first tour in nearly 20 years is happening now. They’ll be at Portland’s Moda center this Saturday August 25th. The Smashing Pumpkins album Siamese Dream was in heavy rotation during my tween angsty phase of not full-blown teenage hating everything but just hating most things. Re-listening to the album after the 2012 sound […]

Panic! At the Disco performed at the Portland Moda Center Sunday August 12th. High level theatrics i.e. big stadium show expectations were met in full. After the opening bands finished a large countdown clock appeared on the primary screen at the back of the stage. Considering the number of times I’ve stressed about making a […]

  Power rock/pop band Panic! At the Disco comes to the Moda Center this weekend. Music snobs (including myself) typically shy away from mainstream rock bands but Panic! At the Disco is an exception. While the music is your standard fun upbeat simple easy to digest rock, the musicians’ performance skills and relatable three-dimensional personalities […]
