Nothin like spending fourth of July with a band from Berlin!
After 77 years of world-history Modern Pets are still part of the cosmic joke!
With their shy-style mongo attitude they´ll get you to give them your last cigarette, your keys and all your cash...
Along with Autofick they stab your back with a blast of new wave hipstershitpunk.
"Fortunately, there ain't nothing modern about the rotten Pet Sounds of these lose cannons... They lit their snot-filled crackerjacks on their cigarette butts and throw them straight into the face of all the yuppie scum and career advisors, covering the cities in good old Punkrock slime."
Our first music break is from Play/Start titled 'The Alibi'
We welcome Samuel, the Mastermind behind the festival, to the show and he shares all the important details of this upcoming event. The Portland Queer Music Festival welcomes 24 LGBTQ and allied bands on July 22 at two venues, with shows starting at 2pm. The all ages show is at Backspace and the 21 and older show is at the Someday Lounge.
We pulled up the garage door and made some room next to that 55' Chevy we've been working on so that The Potons could set up and play for us. They had a little problem, when the lead guitarist DNA found out her had a bad cable, but they kept on rockin'.
Jaime Leopoldand The Short Stories( Walter Cryderman,Aaron Lowe and bassist Jim Miller) came by the studio to perform a couple of songs off their new CD. Thanks to Just Jeese and Devin for handling the engineering duties on this show.
Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man. Kelly reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.
Cuddle Magic were touring the country this spring, having also played in Denver and Seattle before coming to the Sidedoor last night in SE Portland. While they were in the studio, they mentioned that part of them are from Brooklyn, but the other members are from Philidelphia. When they said they met in college, I had to test them with a musical joke that only actual music students laugh at. A wonderful band, with electronic keyboards, trumpet and a bass clarinet among others instruments.
We loved them so much when they perfomed for us last Febuary,<http://kboo.fm/node/34030>, that we had to have them come back. In fact we were flooded with calls from listeners, last Monday, wondering when they would come on. I did have another band ready to perform, but the gals brought me an order of french fries, so we moved them right into the studio!
