McMenamins White Eagle Saloon and School of Rock Portland have joined together again to bring another fantastic youth event to our city! This Sunday, 3 young bands will blow minds and melt all-ages faces at a double EP release from 2:30-5PM. Niamh headlines the show, playing on a fantastic bill with Jamie Iwata and returning guests Pedestrian Death Gang. Niamh and Iwata will celebrate the official releases of their new recordings at this incredible show. Please note: this show is SUNDAY 2:30-5PM – happy hour: a special time to highlight the new releases and allow the bands more time to showcase their music.
We would like to thank all the partners who make these monthly events possible. Ole Latte Coffee and Stefanie Fisher/Windermere Real Estate have continued to offer both financial and physical support, along with John Guffey of School of Rock – who has continued to provide backline and stage management for the bands at every concert. White Eagle graciously hosts our events, donating the venue and providing helpful and enthusiastic staff. PDX Spotlight, Vortex Music Magazine and Teri’s Tunes PDX have offered amazing media support. Teresa Topaz Music has brought us information on tone and performance, courtesy of Guitar Center.
There is such a love of local music and youth here, but we still have much to accomplish – Music Millennium, Friends of Noise, SMART Collective, School of Rock , NW Music Experience, Ethos, PDX Pop Now, Rock and Roll Camp for Girls, PROWUS and Youth Music Project are all leaders in promoting local youth and their musical dreams. Please join Portland Notes in promoting and supporting all-ages events, local youth bands – check out Vortex Music Magazine’s all-ages calendar for family-accessible concerts, and Youth Music Project for weekly and monthly ways to get involved. Suggest a band for the next showcase, come to our concerts with a friend. Just have fun with us.
