Into the Woods Celebrate America with MFNW


Tecate and cigarettes and fire escapes, oh my! The latest Into the Woods video—in partnership with Willamette Week's own MusicfestNW—captures the epic Fourth of July block party hosted outside of East End. And Red Fang's performance of the vicious "Prehistoric Dog" is as awesome as ...   More

The Quiet Storm


Blitzen Trapper lets its music do the talking.

Blitzen Trapper’s Eric Earley is alarmingly quiet in person. Sitting outside the Satellite Cafe in Southeast Portland, it’s almost impossible to hear him talk about his band and its new album, Destroyer of the Void, amid the whir of cars, cyclists and one particularly loud couple’s argument. But suddenly, after...   More

Wolf Parade Tuesday, July 27


Spencer Krug and Dan Boeckner don’t come to blows—they just write perfect rock songs.

[SYNTH ROCK] Spencer Krug wastes no time opening Wolf Parade’s third album, Expo 86, with a declaration of intent. The second you press play, Krug’s sinewy voice hits you. Four minutes later, “Cloud Shadow on the Mountain” still hasn’t let up, though...   More

Few places do one-pot meals better than Pambiche. The Northeast Portland favorite does the Cuban staple ajiaco some serious justice: a hot cauldron simmering with moist corn dumplings, slices of pork and beef so tender they fall apart in your mouth, tropical roots and a delicate topping of white ric   More
