More music picks for Saturday

I should have given you all a heads up for the annual Music Millennium Customer Appreciation BBQ that starts at 11 am and runs until 6 pm.  While there, enjoy lunch on them, enjoy free live music (including Stephanie Schneiderman, Truckstop Darlin', Jon Koonce, Cal Scott & Jack McMahon) all afternoon, and by all means head into the store and shop for some music!

Besides The Bite, McMenamin's Americana Music Festival at the Grand Lodge, and a few other weekend events I mentioned yesterday, Saturday's choices include ...

Excellent Cuban band - Dina y Bamba Su Pilon D'Azucar -  will have the Washington Park Rose Garden Amphitheater hoppin' ... 6 pm, free

The Bridgetown Sextet at The Blue Monk ... 9 pm, $7

New Monsoon and the Quick and Easy Boys at the Alberta Rose Theatre ... 9 pm, $12

Jimmy Mak's has the Alan Jones/Randy Porter Trio  ... 8 pm, $10

The Old Yellers and Ezra Holbrook will be at the Press Club ... 8:30 pm, no cover

Guitarist Alan Hagar is at the Muddy Rudder ... 8 pm, no cover

Get up and get out!

a big headsup for all who like the texas singer-songwriter "americana" ...

former Oregonians from Idaho RECKLESS
KELLY will be at the Crystal Ballroom
this (next) Tuesday, along with Micky & the MC's -- they are phenomenal in concert --
and this should be interesting to see them in a different venue as we have seen them many times at the DOUG FIR


and btw, the NANCI GRIFFITH show (almost a month ago) with great openers THE KENNEDY's was phenomenal at the TRIPLE DOOR in Seattle...
great acoustics and venue, although
the jury is still out on whether combining table service dining with a live music show is that great of an idea...

heard her show at the Aladdin was
equally great!
