After the blues festival ...

I've taken to using the blues festival to mark the transition to summer in Portland and the plethora of outdoor music events going on in and around the city. Today kicks off a summer full of music in Portland parks with the first of five shows at Sellwood Riverfront Park. Performing tonight is the wild and crazy eastern European sounds of Chervona.

Music begins at 6:30 pm ... and there should be a great breeze off the river to cool down the heat ... so come on out!

And a quick heads up ... James Low is back in Portland for a few weeks and a great slate of performances. Welcome back, James! First show this week is Thursday, 9 pm at the Laurelthirst where he'll be backed by Alan Hunter and Chet Lyster (it's the "Acoustic Wreck" show!).

Oh, and some guy named Costello (Elvis, not Lou) is playing the Schnitz on Wednesday ...
