Norwester Sky

Norwester Sky

Western jams from Portland, OR. Come out for an evening of original alt-country music from Norwester Sky at McMenamins' cozy basement bar Al's Den on Sunday, February 12, 2023.

Stripped down to let it breathe with a little country twang in the vocals to fill the air. Swirling with lyrical guitar jams that take you places. And a thick swampy groove to sit back in, nod your head, and stomp your foot all night long. Sometimes the sky will open up and let it pour out.

Playing together in various formations for more than a decade, Norwester Sky fits like an old baseball glove. Original tunes that feel timeless, these fellas take great pride in their craft and love to jam. The outfit consists of Christopher John Mead (vocals, guitar), Mac Brown (vocals, guitar), Brian Bottigliero (bass), Spencer Finnan (keys) & Austin Stewart (vocals, drums). You might recognize these fellas from several other Portland groups, including Dead Sometimes, Five Fingers of Funk, Christopher John Mead, Austin Stewart Quartet, and Cow Paddy Stompers.





About Al's Den

Head downstairs at the Crystal Hotel to hang out in this music venue named for Al Winter, Portland's 1940's gambling overlord.
Al’s Den is an intimate, speakeasy-style space where live music fills the air, but we save the dancing for our larger venues.

The menu features local ingredients, house-baked breads, desserts and pastries from the Crystal Bakery, a specialty cocktail menu and an affordable yet approachable wine list, while a well-trained waitstaff provides a comfortable and welcoming guest experience. No reservations are necessary; stop by for a quick business lunch, a pre-show drink or an evening date night.
