Top 5 Akron/Family’s Favorite Late-Night Tour Food.

By Miles Seaton

Being on the road is tough sometimes. Simple things like finding time to eat become quite difficult. Often it isn’t until after the show that the chance arises to relax with something (usually salty, often spicy) tasty. So at the risk of our name being changed to “Snackron/Family,” I bring you our Top 5 late night foods.Belgian Frites in­&mda...   More

CD Reviews: Alan Singley & Pants Machine, Leviethan

Alan Singley & Pants Machine Feelin’ Citrus
(Bladen County Records)

[WOWEE ZOWEE] Alan Singley is a uniter, not a divider. More than maybe any musician in Portland, Singley’s giddy, enthusiastic compositions and upbeat vibe seep into his songs—so much so, in fact, that even the sadder numbers still feel bright and happy. Feelin’ Citru...   More

CD Reviews: Commotion and SubArachnoid Space

Top 5 Actual Song Titles From Warped Tour Bands

A Day to Remember, “Colder Than My Heart If You Can Imagine”
The band name is almost worse than the song title, but they complement one another.

A Skylit Drive, “Thank God It's Cloudy Because I'm Allergic to the Sunlight”
Oh, wait till you hear the song—it's like a jigsaw puzzle forced together all wrong.

Warren Woodward's Top 3 Travel Spots That Totally Ruin Your Day

Prairie Dog Town, Oakley, Kan.
Advertised for miles as “home of the world’s largest prairie dog,” this place is a complete scam. Chris, our guitarist and resident prairie dog aficionado, really got his hopes up. There was a $7 charge to see the goods. Turns out, though they host several rattlesnakes, goats in heat, and a six-legged cow, they DO NOT host the world’...   More

More PDX Pop Now! Photos, Videos, and Words (Updated w/ New Pics)

I know we've already devoted quite a bit of space to PDX Pop Now! on this little blog, but sometimes it's tough to really know what to say until you've had a few days to sit back and reflect. Few music festivals capture the spirit of a city and its community the way that PDX Pop does, and th...   More
