Here's what we know about the Portland Music Awards: it's run by a shady dude (the shady Craig Marquardo), it's getting bigger every year, and someone convinced Daniel Baldwin to host the 2010 edition. The only other question that really matters: Who are you wearing? Back for the third year in a ...   More

Gossip Saturday, Oct. 24


Brace Paine talks U.K. media attention and life amid the eternal tour.

Through all of the changes Gossip has undergone in the long journey from Arkansas garages to clubs the world over, it’s never been overburdened by recorded material. “Four LPs in 10 years,” guitarist Brace Paine admits. “Yeah, we’re not exactly the Fall.” The trio’s new a...   More

Mic Check: The Pogues


See the full interview here.

The Pogues never should've existed. Not in 1982, not forcing tin whistle and accordion on the pogo-ing faithful. And it seems faintly miraculous the famed Celtic punk outfit's core members stayed together for nine years and five albums. Late-to-the-party devot...   More

Fernando Friday, Feb. 13


A Portland rock icon finds his voice and drops his label.

[AMERICANA TROUBADOUR] Friday's show isn't, actually, a CD-release party for Fernando Viciconte's seventh album, True Instigator. In fact, there is no CD, unless the Americana icon's fanbase burned a disc. Instead, Viciconte will offer the self-released album as a free download from his website for the next three months.

Little Sue Saturday, Nov. 22


Susannah “Little Sue” Weaver talks cross-alt-country journeying.

[COUNTRY-ISH] Susannah “Little Sue” Weaver grew up in West Virginia and, amid the late-'90s No Depression boomlet, was arguably the Portland face of y'allternative. “I'd never heard country until I moved out here,” Weaver says. “I certainly didn't plan on doing alt-country to m...   More
