Green Noise Reopens, Celebrates with DJs and Live Music

Portland is the kind of place where vinyl appreciation is taken seriously amongst much of the masses. While we've lost some of our beloved record shops, the few that are still around are special places that see much business at times other than just Record Store Day. Green Noise Records has lasted throughout the years, changing locations a couple times since its original southeast locale, but they've found yet another new up in northeast that they're celebrating throughout the weekend.

Starting today, Green Noise is hosting their own sort of welcoming party, slated with sets from djs and bands alike. Most of today's festivities, which started around noon, are dj sets. Patrons are invited to peruse the shop's offerings while enjoying records spun by djs like Vera Rubin, Erich Zann and Ken Dirtnap, or tomorrow's live performances from EMS, Low Culture and Davey Quinn

Admission is free and if you scope a few records you'd like to pick up, everything is 15% off the whole weekend. Come check out Green Noise's new space, some awesome bands and djs, and some new vinyl sounds as well.

30 Best Places for Music in PDX? Let's see!

 Clickit Ticket, a ticket resale marketplace that specializes in helping customers find sold out or otherwise hard to get tickets, has taken the time to compile a list of the 30 best places to catch live music in Portland. For locals, some of the names on the list aren't surprising. Places like Mississippi Studios and Holocene are essentially household names and recurring weekend haunts at this point.

Where the gets interesting is with its featuring of certain less popular-to-the-masses spots. They're not all by any means venues but certain diamonds in the rough, like Spinella's Off the Wall or Andina Restaurant, where patrons can catch more varied arrays of music.

Part list for newscomers and tourists, part reminder of places that haven't closed down yet for locals, Clickit Ticket's list is fairly well rounded. Look at it in full and see all the ones you've been to HERE.

Long Hallways celebrate new album & video at NWPRC showcase

Post-rock appreciators have waited years, four to be exact, to experience the followup album to local outfit Long Hallways' debut Live From Dystopia. Tonight, fans will get the jazzy, experimental rock answer they've been waiting for performed right before their eyes.

Long Hallways shared a taste of their newest instrumental narratives with "Crystal Forest," the first to come off of The Way Home. Seeing Long Hallways live is even more of a wanderous experience than what's given through headphones, which is why debuting their new tracks and first official music video (for their son "March of Knives") at the third installment of the Northwest Post Rock Collective Showcase (NWPRC) is perfect.

Take a journey with Long Hallways, their new songs, and the rest of the NWPRC showcase bands tonight at the Tonic Lounge, but give The Way Home a streamed listen below first.

Thelma brings her world of haunted beauty to Alphaville on 04.29

Have you ever wondered what the genre "alt-cherub" sounds like? Listen to Thelma to find out - these keywords are listed as the genre on her Facebook page. It's a pretty accurate description; her sound is sparse, though at times breaking into affected drum arrangements; falsetto gliding overlapping in canons and synths building drama make sure you never feel quite at ease in Thelma's world. The song "Peach" highlights that conundrum and puts inner turmoil into sound form, while debut album opener"If You Let It" (streaming) methodically builds itself in ways that are at once operatic and experimental. Check out Thelma live at Alphaville in Brooklyn on April 29th. - Geena Kloppel
