[ONE-OR-TWO-HIT WONDERS] If you were gonna peg Oregon to a musical decade, the ’80s mightn’t be your first choice, with our hippie rep and position within the blast range of the ’90s grunge explosion. But taking the stage tonight are three early MTV-era hitmakers, all with Oregon connections. Tommy Heath of Tommy Tutone was a longtime Portland resident post-fleeting fame, though he’s since decamped to California. Swapping states with him was the Motels’ scratchy-voiced chanteuse, Martha Davis, long tied to the L.A. scene but now the owner of a 72-acre Oregon farm. And hard-working Portland musician Bill Wadhams must draw a few “don’t I know that guy?” stares around town, as he once sang of his “Obsession,” in heavy rotation, with Animotion. This show kicks off “’80s Weekend” at the Crystal.
