The Parson Red Heads

'60s pop meets indie/folk

The Parson Red Heads

The Parson Red Heads are a rock n' roll band from Portland-by-way-of-Los Angeles. Over the past decade they have released three full length records (working with such legends as Chris Stamey of The dB's, Mitch Easter of Let's Active, and Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5, among others!), seven EPs, two 7" singles, and toured all across the country in every sort of touring vehicle imaginable.

Every New Years Eve The Parsons perform a special concert, where they play one classic album from start to finish. In previous years, they have performed Tom Petty's "Wildflowers", The Beatles "Hard Days Night", Weezer "Blue", and JJ Cale's "Naturally".



Melodic Pop-Rock Powerhouse


Recently selected as Portland Oregon's Best Emerging Alt Rock Band by The Deli Magazine, LiquidLight has momentum and they aren't stopping any time soon. Their recently released first full length album, Uninitiated, showcases a band with tremendous potential as a pop-rock powerhouse. Referencing post-punk and alternative bands such as Husker Du and The Replacements, LiquidLight has been described as "melodic, thoughtful and jingle-jangly as well as shred-crazy and powerful".

In an age where popular culture pushes to "out-extreme" the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism. "LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your eardrums lately" - Eleven Magazine

Songwriters Anthony Medici and Cory West, both Berklee College of Music alums, honed their craft while performing with bands in Boston and along the East Coast. They are each highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists backed by an explosive and versatile rhythm section. Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.




Rainstorm Brother

Rainstorm Brother

John Isaac Watters has long been among the most cerebral, although underappreciated, purveyors of folk music in Los Angeles, his spare meditations fraught with the fragility of his own humanity (and yours). During his 2016 residency at the Hi Hat, Watters unveiled the new collaboration Rainstorm Brother, which finds the singer-songwriter working with keyboardist-producer Tyler Chester to achieve a sound that might be described as cinematic freak-folk ... or, at least, experimental and

Rainstorm Brother's Pt.1 is the perfect marriage of solo artist (and former architect) Watters' pensive, spare acoustic numbers and producer/keyboardist Chester's deep, dreamy soundscapes. Across the six songs, Watters' work as a folk/country balladeer is juxtaposed to intoxicating effect with Chester's synthesizers, layered strings, modular electronics, sequencers, 808s, live drums and electric guitar, casting his music in a lush and challenging new

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
