On the radar screen for this week:
At the Muddy Rudder on Monday March 19th it's an evening of stellar country blues from one of Portland's favorite sons - Lloyd Jones performs from 7:30 to 10:30. It is categorically ALWAYS a treat to listen to Lloyd do his 'thang' on Mondays at 'The Rudder' Satisfaction Guaranteed!
At the Aladdin Theatre on Tuesday March 20th - 'There is a fat man, in the bathtub, with the blues.' http://youtu.be/sjZ7LS67YWU No it's not your blog substitute host, Dave Johnson - (I prefer to shower) It's Little Feat w/ The Villians this show starts at 8:00pm and if you're a fan, you're likely to have already been aware of this show. The band is in Portland at least every other year and is a breath of fresh air for those of us who remember 'Dallas Alice.' http://youtu.be/xrCMlSWlDX8
On Wednesday March 21st - at The Crystal Ballroom get ready for an evening with The Drive-By Truckers. Doors open at 8:00 and the show starts at 9:00
|Listen to 'Women Without Whiskey' at the link below|
On Thursday March 22nd at Halibut's you'll find Lisa Mann and Her Really Good Band. This woman can S-I-N-G and she's an intelligent and thoughtful bad ass bass player too. Listen to her cover the quintessential Etta James tune 'At Last' http://youtu.be/p6VXj7LRnOU
On Friday, March 23rd at Mississippi Studios - Of Montreal headlines a three act evening of nouveaux pop brilliance. Doors open at 8:00 and the show begins at 9:00.
I hope this will help you with your musical decision making for the week. And once again, thank you for supporting 'live' music in our fair city - Portland, Oregon.
