Berbati's Pan Founding Co-Owner Ted Papaioannou, RIP

The local music scene just can't catch a break. On Monday night Berbati's Pan owner Ted Papaioannou died, just weeks after the announcement that the club will stop hosting concerts starting next year. Papaioannou, 56, immigrated from Berbati, a village near Argos, Greece in the Peloponnesus, when he...   More

Destroy Nate Allen: Like a Dozen '50s Diners Threw Up (Portland to Spirit Lake, ID)

We kicked off our tour at The Sea Shanty, our favorite house to play in Portland. This was our last hometown show of 2010, and it was great to see all our friends one last time. Right before our set the cops showed up after they got a call from a neighbor, but they only stopped in for ...   More

Marnie Stern’s Top 5 Tour Survival Items.

We try to buy cartons when we’re in the Southern states because they’re so cheap there and ideally that will last us for a while.Priceline.com
You can “name your own price,” and often you can get something like a four-star hotel room for as little as $75. That means hot showers; big, comfy beds; and free breakfast!Fig, my dog

DJ Shadow Wednesday, Oct. 27

What does DJ Shadow’s soul look like?
by Jenny Tatone

[FREE-RANGE TURNTABLISM] Funny. I’ve always thought of Josh Davis, better known as DJ Shadow, as a composer whose music comes not from him, but through him—whose otherworldly tracks could somehow exist without the person. “I’ve always felt that the mix is strongest when you put yourself...   More

CD Reviews: Wow & Flutter, Super XX Man

Wow & Flutter Equilibrio!
(Mount Fuji Records)

[REJUVENATED POST-PUNK] Local post-rock trio Wow & Flutter is hardly a new band. In fact, this isn’t even its first incarnation; starting back in the mid-’90s as a five-piece led by singer-guitarist Cord Amato and drummer Jack Houston, Wow & Flutter has been mining the same squalling guitar feedback and...   More

Live Review: NeverShoutNever, The Maine and Friends, Wednesday, Oct. 20 at Wonder Ballroom,

For this very special live review, I have enlisted one of my rock journalism class students from the Pendelton School of Rock, 16-year-old Melody Justice (which, as the Maine's publicist noted early on, is an "amazing music writer name!"), to review NeverShoutNever's Harmony Tour. She did a ban...   More

CD Reviews: Boom!, Quick & Easy Boys

Boom! Boom!
(Hovercraft Records)

[PUNK ROCK, FUCK YEAH!] The Portland music scene, despite its virtues, often takes itself too seriously. In 2010, it seems like every new band has a fancy MySpace page and a business plan, an open Kickstarter account and an album full of polished songs. Whatever happened to just getting together with your buds in a seedy basement and scrapp...   More

CD Reviews: The Ascetic Junkies, Wax Fingers

The Ascetic Junkies The Cage Has No Bottom
(Timber Carnival Records)

[NEWGRASS] The idea of mixing acoustic instruments with electronic flourishes is not a new one. For years, artists like Four Tet, the Books and the Notwist took a knife to sounds normally associated with folk-music tradition—sparsely picked guitar; chiming banjos; found sound—and cut them into...   More
