[RIFFS, BEATS AND BLUNTS] Those who see Portland as a mecca for precious, waxed-mustached folk outfits drenched in sepia-tones need to get out more. When I think of independent music in Portland, I think of the bands on this bill: White Rainbow’s trunk-rattling dance weirdness, the exceptionally stoned innocence of the Memories, Donnie Blossoms’ unlistenable Casio-funk, that gross album cover featuring Unkle Funkle’s shriveled balls and Rob Walmart’s musical ice cream van bringing parties out into the street. The city I love runs on pizza and marijuana, and these are the musicians who keep it running. Get weird with them.
