Jukebox of Guilty Pleasures: And And And


As you may have noticed last week, LocalCut has a new column in which the members of a local band divulge their musical guilty pleasures with the aid of YouTube videos. For the second installment, the roisterous rock quintet And And And ...   More

Jukebox of Guilty Pleasures: Blue Cranes


There's a beauty to the jukebox. My favorite resides at the Springdale Tavern. The bar is located just outside of Troutdale and when you walk in, everyone turns to look, keenly aware that you're not a local. The jukebox there has a diverse catalog of both current and past hits and on one particular $1 well drink Wednesday, I plugged quite a few quarters into the machine. And while everyone in the ...   More

Live Review: Fin de Cinema, Tuesday, Jan. 3 at Holocene

Tuesday night marked yet another installment of Fin de Cinema at Holocene, at which bands compose and perform an all-new score to soundtrack the film of the evening. This night's screening was of Cassandra Cat, a loopy and colorful Czech classic featuring a magical cat in sunglasses. I arrived at Holocene to hear a very animated and punchy chorus of horns and strings as I made my way up the aisle...   More

New Year's Resolutions From Your NYE Entertainment


As is tradition, the end of a year is a perfect time to reflect and to set resolutions for the upcoming year. With that in mind—and the fact that nearly every venue in Portland is offering up a solid New Year’s Eve bill—we decided to ask this year’s New Year entertainment for their New Year’s resolutions.
We received a slew of responses from many of the talented musicians that will b...   More

Holiday Awkward Memories from Portland Musicians


It seems like the holiday season is always the perfect recipe for awkward moments. Be it the coming together of people that may have not seen each other in awhile, the egg nog, the booze-infused holiday parties between co-workers and friends or the awkwardness of gift-giving, the season is ripe with opportunity. With that in mind—and with many of us coming off some awkward holiday moments of our...   More

10 Holiday Recipes from 10 Portland Musicians

food luvvvv

[This post was originally meant to go up before Thanksgiving, hence the Thanksgiving references. Still, it should work just fine for gatherings of the Christmas/Hannukah variety. Enjoy! -Ed.]
It’s that wonderful time of the year to sit down at the table and have a good meal with family and friends. But how to get from Point A to Point B? You can’t sit down without good food on the ta...   More

Fargo Records: A Slice of Portland in Paris


I don't normally expect to feel like I'm at home when I'm abroad. Sure there are little reminders of the Rose City from time to time—be it walking by a show poster advertising a Nurses gig or just the fact that Berlin has a very similar and affordable creative scene—but typically it's a cluster of foreign words and food, new sights and new sounds, regardless of the country.

However, if...   More

Photo Review: Radiation City and Lost Lander, Saturday, Dec. 10 @ Doug Fir Lounge

rad city

Saturday night marked the Portland return for local acts Radiation City and Lost Lander after a six-day tour that brought them down south and into the California sun. Both bands noted that it was good to be back and a very appreciative crowd seemed to echo the sentiment. 
Each act also made a dedication from the stage, with Radiation City leading everyone in a round of "Happy Birthday" for...   More

Vintage Live Review: tUnE YarDs @ Wonder Ballroom, Nov. 21 (with photos)


Globe-trotting reporter-at-large Nilina Mason-Campbell sent this live review to WW in late November. Her editor, stuffed with turkey and booze during the Thanksgiving holiday, completely spaced it. Better late than never [-Ed]

On Monday night I arrived to the Wonder Ballroom just as opening act Pat Jordache took the stage. When I first maneuvered myself up to the front of the stage, I found...   More

Photo Review: Glass Candy in Paris

ida no/ glass candy

Just after 2 am on Saturday, Glass Candy took to the stage at noted Paris club night Flash Cocotte, to a rabid audience that rivaled the hometown crowds that gather at Rotture whenever the pair plays the Rose City.

Opening with "Digital Versicolor," front-woman Ida No was nearly unrecognizable with her new brunette hair-do and heavy '60s-style makeup. Of course, the moment she slipped off ...   More
