Patterson Hood and his family are trying out Portland for a spell. A cold, dark, wet spell. The idea is, if they can get through a winter and still love Portland, the rest of the year should be a snap. In the meantime, Hood has a residency at the Doug Fir this month; his band Drive-By Truckers is playing the Roseland on April 24.
The Monolith Agency is bringing Portland bands up to Alaska to play all around the great northern state. It's a great way for Portland bands to get out-of-state gigs and see Alaska at the same time.
And a fizzing Faygo bottle's worth of Up & Coming shows.
