The Accidental Venue

Exit Only fills a void in Portland’s all-ages scene.


Here Comes Your Fan
Last Monday night, I found myself wandering under the Fremont Bridge’s industrial east side. The block I was pacing—between North Albina Avenue and Tillamook Street, just off the MAX&rsquo ...   More

Shelley Short Christens Hinah's Parisian Flat

Ghostland Observatory at Crystal Ballroom, April 3, 2008


(Photos by Brian Lee) Before last Thursday, I'd only ever seen Austin electro-pop duo Ghostland Observatory in the light of day (at last year's Sasquatch! fest). So, when the guy at the door said, "Don't look into the lasers," when I arrived at the Crystal for t...   More

I find it kind of hard to believe that I've never posted a Cut of the Day by ex-Kissing Book frontman Andrew Kaffer, but a cursory LocalCut search confirms it. So, here's a laidback, loungey electro-acoustic number from 2006's Idle Idol, Kaffer's proper solo debut. You might recognize his voice f...   More

Here Comes Your Fan: What A Fool Believes


The late '70s and early '80s were extravagant times: The economy was booming; high-style party drugs like cocaine were in vogue; hair was big and bodified, and beards followed suit. The music? Well, the music was smooth.

And what smoother—or more indicative of excessive wealth—than sailing?...   More
