Kevin Seconds, Sean Croghan, Sorta Ultra

CASEY JARMAN
8 pm., Sunday March 17 | Call venue for ticket information.
Slabtown
1033 NW 16th Ave.
 

[ALL-AGES] Kevin Seconds and Sean Croghan each brought the spirit of punk rock to very un-punk places: Seconds in Reno (and later his native Sacramento) with his fabled early hardcore band, 7 Seconds, and Croghan in Portland with a handful of outfits that were just a little too heavy and passionate for their drab Stumptown surroundings. But the most inspiring thing about these local legends isn’t that they stuck around their respective scenes, it’s that they stayed engaged and relevant while making their local scenes better. Both dudes can still kick out the jams, but expect to hear their quiet sides—Seconds just released a very folky and catchy acoustic EP called Van Songs; Croghan has been focused on his visual art and bands the Needful Longings and the Pynnacles, but he has plenty of tunes—at this intimate and inspiring all-ages alternative to all the St. Patty’s bullshit downtown.
