Yesterday's Bernie Sanders rally at Moda Center had no shortage of highlights.
The Portland music scene, in particular, made a strong showing. Dandy Warhols' Zia McCabe gave the opening remarks, declaring her support for Sanders "as a woman, a mother and a feminist." In addition, long-running Portland pop-punk band the Thermals also played a song before the senator from Vermont began his speech, an acoustic rendition of "Now We Can See," the title track from the trio's 2009 album. Watch it here:
Of course, everyone ended up getting overshadowed by a damn house finch. But it's still pretty cool.
The Thermals' new album, We Disappear, is out now. It's good.
