Drink 2008


Food Reviews & Stories
If it takes you a while to get past the pretension of a place marked with an ambiguous logo—the bar’s only signage is a silhouette of, presumably, owner Ron Toms wearing a propeller-clad backpack—instead of a proper name, you’re not alone. Kinda smacks of “If you’   More

Drink 2008


Food Reviews & Stories
I know I’m not the only PDX resident who’s originally from the Midwest (or another region where most folks drink crappy domestic beer), so let me say this: Morrison Hotel is just like those bars you used to go to in order to drink good (meaning European) beer. And its mostly bottled-beer   More

Drink 2008


Food Reviews & Stories

Apparently, it takes at least three days to recover from WW's Best New Band showcase. Yeah, it was that good. So good, in fact, that all I've been saying for the past few days is "all three bands were on top of their games" and "best Best New ...   More

LEAK: Autopilot is for Lovers, "No One Will Know" from forthcoming Sore Eyes EP (Stereotype)


If there's one singer I consistently hear other musicians rave about in this town, it's Autopilot's Adrienne Hatkin. Okay, I hear about how awesome the Builders and the Butchers are an awful lot, too—but they're a band, not a singer, OK? Oddly enough, though, Hatkin happens to be an ex-...   More

BNB Twofer: Loch Lomond, "The Trumpet Song," and The Builders and the Butchers, "When It Rains," both from split 12-inch (Bladen County Records)


Well, whadya know? Two of this year's Best New Bands—The Builders and the Butchers and Loch Lomond—like each other so darn much that they recorded a split 12-inch together last fall. Which makes it pretty easy for us...   More

Best New Band 2008


Spitfire pseudo-preachers, sexy-spastic frontwomen, ghosts and dream weavers—they're all here in Willamette Week's fifth annual Best New Bands issue. But first things first: Just so we're clear, WW does not pick the winner, or even the top 10. Neither do most of you. That task is left to a...   More
