[LOCAL GOLD] Were there a naturalization test for new Portlanders, at least one Richmond Fontaine question would make the Scantron test. Perhaps: “Is Richmond Fontaine A) One of the tightest and most face-melting groups in Portland, B) Fronted by arguably the best lyricist in the city, C) An alt-country institution coming up on its 20th anniversary or D) All of the above.”  (Psst, it’s D.) While a small cabal of die-hard local fans—and a few curious followers of frontman Willy Vlautin’s excellent novels—always come out in support, the reception at home pales to the crowds that swell to see the band in Europe. Just back from a quick jaunt to Ireland and Norway, Richmond Fontaine will happily play an inspiring set of ludicrously well-written story-songs about hard-luck gamblers and recovering alcoholics at Dante’s whether the club is loaded or hollow. But I cannot think of a Portland group that more deserves a packed house. Make it so.
