Fanno Creek

The group hasn't played a live show in Portland since returning from tour with the wonderfully talented Animal Eyes this fall, so we're in for a treat.

Tiger House

Friends for life, these righteous dudes will release their second live album with us at the Doug Fir this December. Look for details soon!


We can't wait for this group to get all the respect they deserve. Following a recent show with Hustle and Drone at Bunk Bar, they're on the right track.

Once again, the show is free, it benefits a great nonprofit, features great bands and prizes from sweet businesses in Portland. There's no reason to miss the show if you'll be in town, so RSVP on Facebook and come say hello as we give thanks for being blessed with so much.

Huge thanks to Nalin from Kelly's Olympian and Revolver Studios for helping put the show together, to Brenna at Last Broadcast Design for the post, to our gratious sponsors who have terrific products you should purchase on a regular basis, and to all the bands playing for a great cause.
