Yo! Get Ya Noise On, Homie!

There was this noise-music show that would come on after the news at the college radio station in Eugene. The hosts would come in with this huge mixing board, delay pedals, even a vacuum cleaner, and basically just play around, improvising noises over CDs, often playing more than one at a time. The show was (and is)...   More

Band Name of the Week: Kin Keezy

There have been some real winners when it comes to Band Name of the Week responses. But, let me tell you, last week's BNotW crownee, Portland's own electro-industrial outfit Digustitron, came back with one of my all-time faves. It started with an em...   More

WTF of the Month: Thermals and YACHT at Backspace...and it's Free!?

God damn, you know why I love the Thermals? Besides the obvious reasons (like that they're the best melodic punk outfit since Bad Religion), I love 'em because they either:

a) don't understand what a big deal they really are


b) don't give a shit how big a deal they ar...   More

Band Name of the Week: Disgustitron

At long last, Band Name of the Week returns! My sincere apologies for the few-week hiatus (you missed our little BNotW column, didn't you? Well, at least "Don," of recent comments fame missed it). So, without further adieu, the rumored-to-have-AC/DC connections Busin...   More

Adam Gnade: Something for the Ghosts (United Kingdom)

I've thought it over plenty how I should end this thing. Was thinking about doing a wrap up where I re-charted the dates and covered the whole five weeks in a tidy summary. Also wanted to do something where I included all the stories I forgot—Graeme's love adventures, our days off at Sim's farmhouse in the Eng...   More

A Sour End For Grapedrink

Looks like all-ages venues and Portland just don't mix. Grapedrink, the Southwest Portland venue that legally admitted minors but served alcohol, has closed down, citing pressure from investors and the OLCC as reasons. Tonight will be the venue's last night.

LC PODCASTS: These are the Days with Arya Imig (Nov. 1, 2007)

Things start out normal enough on These Are The Days 12, with the anthemic blaze of Red Dons and the primal stomp of the Wires. Recent Portland transplants Purple Rhinestone Eagle, from Philadelphia, carry the torch of normalcy too, but it all goes a bit Pete Tong from there with Fist Fite and Mattress throwing confe...   More

Hang the DJ: DJ Koolaid

DJ Koolaid comes with dreams of DJing a party at the next Olympics and claims that he has been to another dimension. If you come to PALA Fashion Lounge on any third Thursday, bring your friends and dance to whatever electro he's playing, it becomes Kool and the Gang! Bad joke, fine DJ.

How did you dec...   More

Wrap 'n' Roll: Slabtown's Rock Photo Silent Auction Ends Sunday!

As is the way with silent things, you may not have heard about Slabtown's month-long rock 'n' roll photo show and silent auction, but it's time you did--'cause the Northwest-side garage-rock haven is wrappin' things up this coming Sunday, Nov. 4, at midnight (that's less than week away!).

Viva Voce: Getting "Er" Done (Raleigh, NC)

So we're in full swing. Playing in front of hundreds of texting people each night! Arriving in one piece was good enough...but I'll give you the run down:

1st Day.
Got the rental van. Noticed the aroma & sleuthed from the air freshener that something was askew. Cleaned up fish scales in the bac...   More
