Ben Meyercord's Live Picks for April 22nd

Hello Dear Readers,

Remember me? I am Ben I used to write about all the show that are happening in the Portland area. Then I went out for awhile. But I am back now. Looks like there are some shows that are happening this week.


It's Earth Day! See a show in Celebration.

  • Roseland is having a show with Bloc Party and Menomena. I think that Bloc Party makes some pretty good songs. I think that Menomena, on the other hand, makes some pretty amazing songs. They don't play all the time so, why not try to see them when they do?

  • Holocene is having a Sleepy Eyes of Death, A Cautionary Tale, and Grey Anne. It is the CD release for A Cautionary Tale, a band I know for a fact Goldie Loves. I think Grey Anne is great. There for it stands to reason that this show will be a good one. Its only$6. It starts at 9 PM.
  • The Know is having a a FREE show with Stiffwiff and Neighborhood Stars. Stiffwiff is the sweet "jam" band featuring members of Graves and Carcrashlander. As I said the show is FREE. It starts at 8 PM.
  • East Burn is having a show with John Vecchiarelli. He is a dud that I have heard and read about for some time. The show is FREE and starts at 10 PM.

So if you see me at any of these shows, please say Hi. I have been gone for a while. It would be nice to see you.


This is an example of what A Cautionary Tale will look like tonight at Holocene
