Rock for Pete: The James Low Western Front, Sean Croghan, Casey Neill and the Norway Rats, Colin Meloy, Black Prairie, Lewi Longmire and the Left Coast Roasters, the Dharma Bums
128 NE Russell St.
[FOR PETE'S SAKE] One measure of a man's life is how his friends, his acquaintances and even strangers react in his time of need. If that's truly the case, Pete Krebs' life has clearly made a major impact. Since word got out about his cancer diagnosis a few weeks ago, the Portland music scene has rallied to the side of the multifaceted singer-songwriter and former Hazel frontman, raising money to help pay his medical bills and organizing a series of benefit concerts. The lineup is somewhat besides the point, but it is an impressive collection of Portland songwriting talent—you already know Colin Meloy, and you should probably recognize Casey Neill, Black Prairie, and the Dharma Bums—which all by itself tells you everything Krebs has meant to this community.
