1. Fanno Creek w/ Sama Dams & Hands In
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $7
When: Wednesday, December 4th – 9pm
Why: The moment we all (well, a heck of a whole lot of us) have been waiting for has finally arrived! Fanno Creek’s debut full-length record, Monuments, arrives just in time for the holidays! So bundle up and get out there, Portland! With support from Sama Dams and Hands In you won’t want to miss this one!
2. Cate Le Bon w/ Kevin Morby
Where: Doug Fir
How Much: $10/$12
When: Thursday, December 5th – 9pm
Why: Cate Le Bon is stopping through town in support of her third full-length, Mug Museum. The Welsh singer’s haunting melodic vocals will surely bounce off the wooden walls of Doug Fir perfectly. If you haven’t grabbed your ticket yet, I highly recommend doing so now.
2a. Judah Friedlander
Where: Helium Comedy Club
How Much: $22
When: Thursday-Saturday, December 5th-7th
Why: You might know him as Frank Rossitano from 30 Rock or that tall dude with big glasses and a trucker hat, but after this weekend you’ll know Judah Friedlander’s true love is stand up comedy. The World Champion will be making Portland laugh for three straight nights at Helium Comedy Club. Get your tickets and get ready to laugh so hard you’ll cry.
3. Autonomics w/ Mister Tang, Foxy Lemon & Psychomagic
Where: The Blue Monk
How Much: $4
When: Saturday, December 7th – 9pm
Why: Why? Besides four bands for 4 bucks? C’mon, you can totally find that in your couch cushions! Autonomics, Mister Tang, Foxy Lemon, and Psychomagic are worth it, respectively. Oh, did I mention the show will be hosted by Ed Forman? Yep, now you’ve got more reasons to go than the dollars it will cost.
