A week ago, the 6th edition of Local Cut's Portland Lounge Series went down in front of an absolutely packed Towne Lounge. All three performers put on ridiculously awesome sets, and all three did a fine job of answering my ridiculously awkward on-stage questions. Scout Niblett (implicitly) warned of the dangers of Portland's bar oversaturation. Oh told us why she's on probation. And, We Quit revealed exactly what they're quitting, and why they're not so loud about it anymore. Then, the crowd joined in for a scream of "we quit!" Fine times indeed. Take a listen below. Seriously, all three of these bands/bandles killed.
Also, as you go through this two hour set, please understand that the playback speed isn't fucked up as you get towards the end. That's called "slurring." [Also we've gotten way better at audio since this show, I think this one came out in mono. Sorry! -5/08]
