And And And to Release Debut "The Failure" 1.15

Over the last half decade tat Portland's And And And has been bumping and grinding, they have become the epicenter of a bubbling scene of melodramatic dark-rock bands that make their home in the city's inner east side.  However, due to family troubles and self-admitted depression bogging down frontman Nathan Baumgartner, the band only managed to release two EPs and a few singles over the last five years. Though they still managed to earn themselves the title of Best New Band in 2011 by the Willamette Week, and are some of the most diversely active and friendly menbers of the local music community as a whole. 

Alas, these Portland staples are finally ready to unveil their long awaited debut full lenth. Out on Party Damage Records, And And And will celebrate release of The Failure on January 15 at Doug Fir with the support of Hosannas and Ah God.  But for now, wet your whistle on their brand new, silly ass hobo-fest of a video for the album's first single, "A Real Case of the Blues."

Lose Yr Mind This Weekend!

I'd be lying through my teeth if I told you there wasn't much going on this weekend. What I can genuinely state is that the Lose Yr Mind music fest should take highest priority. Over the course of two days, the AudioCinema warehouse located in industrial southeast will host a memorable party with an amazing lineup full of psychedelic, garage, lo-fi, alternative and grunge. 

This brand new event kicks off Friday, October 17th with Sun Angle, And And And, Talkative and Summer Cannibals. Saturday night, The Ghost Ease, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Clarke and the Himselfs and Naomi Punk will conclude the festivities. All mentioned above have created their own following for different reasons, but they all share in that none are forgettable. 
 
Beer will be served and spilled. People will thrash. Maybe someone will pray or whatever. Maybe that someone will be you once you realize how crazy things get. Maybe you don't even believe in god and this might be the one thing you can ever believe in. Either way, trust me on this. $10 each night, 21+, 8pm, cop yr tickets ahead of time here.

Rigsketball 2014: Rock 'N Roll 'N Basketball

It would be hard for someone to argue against the statement that Portland has its quirks. When you throw in​ creative individuals who desire a strong sense of community, you get magic. You get someone like Bim Ditson. He's gone on to be one of the stand-out innovators in the Portland music and arts communities. His invention? Rigsketball (and lots of amazing music and chainmail accessories).

You might've seen Rigsketball before, especially if you hang around local music venues. There's only one brightly-painted van with a hoop attached. The game is seriously defined as "a yearly bracket style basketball tournament played between Portland bands at locations across the city on a regulation height hoop attached to the back of a van." What happens next? Music.

Semifinals and finals will occur in the parking lot of The East Portland Eagles Lodge this Friday, July 25th at 5pm​. Live performances by six of our favorite Portland artists, Bearcubbin', Sons of Huns, The Ghost Ease, And And And, Talkative and Old Age and they can be experienced between two stages. Everything is free. Everything. See you there.
