Tonight in Music: Y La Bamba & Rigsketball

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Jul 24, 2013 at 2:47 PM


Y LA BAMBA
(SW Main & Park) This time of year, you may as well re-purpose everything you love to the out of doors, and music is certainly a prime target. You can ordinarily catch bands like tonight's performer Y La Bamba in dark clubs—this time, take in their final show before the band goes on hiatus at Music on Main Street, which runs as a weekly series through the end of next month.

RIGSKETBALL FINALS: THE WOOLEN MEN, WOODEN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND, MINDEN, GRANDPARENTS, GAYTHEIST, THE WE SHARED MILK, MISTER TANG
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Unless you're living under a rock or really don't care about local music at all, you know that PDX Pop Now! took place last weekend under the sizzling hot sun in Southeast Portland. Opposite the main stage, you might have noticed a brightly painted van adorned with a basketball hoop—AKA Rigsketball. This highly conspicuous vehicle belongs to Bim Ditson of And And And, who has made it his mission to figure out just which Portland band is best at slamming three-pointers and coming up with their own inventive Rigsketball moves. After three rounds, it all winds down tonight, when the winner band will be crowned. But we're all pretty much winners when we can celebrate this growing tradition with a free show, a killer lineup, and a van decked out with a collapsible basketball hoop. This is gonna rip!
