King Harvest (Levon Helm and the Band tribute)

AP KRYZA
9 pm, Thursday August 16 | $7
Goodfoot Lounge
2845 SE Stark St.
 
[TRIBUTE] When Levon Helm succumbed to cancer this spring, mourners took a cue from the rootsy music Helm resurrected as the backbone and voice of the Band and in his own folk records: They celebrated his life through music. One of the most influential musicians in the modern Americana movement, Helm set the world ablaze with his immediately distinct voice and precision drumming, and now it's Portland's turn to host a wake celebrating the stalwart. Taking the stage of the Goodfoot, Juno What and Radula key master Steve Swatkins has assembled a team of musicians, including members of the Druthers and Cherry Poppin' Daddies, to help carry the weight of mourning the way Levon would have most appreciated—with a straight-up jamboree that'll have feet stomping so hard it should be heard in the heavens.
