Trumans Water, "5-7-10 Split," O Zeta Zunis (Asthmatic Kitty)

I can't say I am intimately familiar with Trumans Water. The 19-year-old schizo-guitar-pop outfit, often billed as more Pavement than Pavement—wilder, less sensical, more angular—has spent most of its lifespan in relative obscurity, where it was safe from latte-sipping, Hummer-driving douchebags like me.

Aside from being a total blast, it introduced me to a few new acts to keep an eye on, with Starparty standing out. I'd write about the band at length shortly thereafter. "Sleep When You're Dead" is the kind of song that made me excited about Starparty in the first place. Catchy, ...   More

It's a River Par-tay: University of Portland Willamette River Fest April 15

We have a vested interest in maintaining the welfare of this river. That's why the University of Portland's Ecology Club, crew team, and others will ...   More
