1. Holocene Turns 10!
How Much: Free!
When: Wednesday & Thursday, June 5th & 6th- 8:30pm
Why: Put on your red shoes and let’s dance! Come out and celebrate one of Portland’s premiere venues as they hit a 10 year milestone with two nights of awesome! Tonight with Shy Girls, Magic Mouth, Minden, Adventurous Sleeping (featuring John Bowers of Nurses) and DJs galore! Then get some sleep, hydrate, and come back Thursday for a second helping.
2. Mikal Cronin w/ Shannon and the Clams & Old Light
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $10/$12
When: Thursday, June 6th – 8pm
Why: Mikal Cronin, after his amazing self-titled debut on Trouble In Mind Records, has signed and released his sophomore effort with Merge Records entitled MCII. If we’re lucky, he’ll play a healthy mix of both records. Joining him on tour is the amazing Shannon Shaw with her equally brilliant band, Shannon & The Clams. If Portland knows what’s good for it, this show will definitely sell out!
3. Bear & Moose, Old Age, A Happy Death, & The We Shared Milk
Where: Doug Fir
How Much: $10
When: Saturday, June 8th – 9pm
Why: As if $10 wasn’t already one heck of a deal for this ripe bunch, that Hamilton will also snag you a copy of Bear & Moose’s second full-length, Inside The Eyewall. Adding to the night’s allure is the triumphant return of A Happy Death, fresh off their national tour and ready to rock your faces off. What’s this? Old Age and The We Shared Milk, too? Well hot damn, Saturday night is lookin all right!
