State Champs & Mayday Parade @ Crystal Ballroom [Portland, OR]

Summer vibes and some sad tunes made for a remarkable evening at the Crystal Ballroom on Tuesday night. The Sad Summer tour made a pit stop in Portland, OR on July 30th, 2019. With co-headlining favorites such as Mayday Parade and State champs, it was sure to be a good time. Playing a heavy dose of their most popular tracks and with the help of the incredibly talented Mom Jeans & Just Friends it was a successful endeavor.

Sylar @ Hawthorne Theatre [Portland, OR]

New York artists have always struck a chord inside when it comes to my taste for music. Whether its a hip hop legend like Aesop Rock or a heavy hitter post hardcore rockers Sylar, there’s a special amount of energy these artists bring to their music as well as the stage. The Hawthorne Theatre brought New York rockers Sylar to the stage on May 21st. With assistance from Cane Hill, Varials, Bloodline, and Darkenside attendees moshed til they dropped.

The Macks & The Shifts @ Sessions Music Lounge [Eugene, OR]

April is a month jam packed full of holidays. You’ve got April Fool’s day, Good Friday, Easter, 4-20, and last but not least Halfway Halloween. That’s right on Saturday April 27th at the Sessions Music Lounge in Eugene Oregon, creatures of night gathered for an evening full of Halloween fun. I had the pleasure of stopping by for some shooting shenanigans and was lucky enough to snap some pics of my favorite locals – The Macks & The Shifts. The monsters mashed and the kegs they tapped, it was an awesome evening full of rock ‘n’ roll.

Movements @ Hawthorne Theatre [Portland, OR]

The punk scene is live and well in the Good ol’ U-S-of-A and on Monday night it was splashed with just a bit of UK magic.¬†California based Movements teamed up with punk rockers Boston Manor, Trash Boat, and Drug Church to tour these patriotic states. Performing for the wild PDX crowd, there was plenty of punks in the pit and these kids go hard!

Early 2000’s punk vibes and two albums performed back to back live?

Performing Tell All Your Friends & Louder Now both in their entirety, fans received a heavy mix of early 2000’s feels. With support from The Maine, the 20th Anniversary Tour was not one to miss.

Switchfoot @ Crystal Ballroom [Portland, OR]

We were Meant to Live for so much more than CD’s and vinyls, and while I may not have all of the answers – we were definitely meant to live for live music! There’s a refreshing energy when an experienced industry artist hits the stage and on Wednesday night Switchfoot delivered. The Native Tongue tour made a very special stop in the ever so lovely PDX with support from Colony House, and Tyson Mostenbocker. By taking requests from the crowd and then somehow making a 1,000+ attendee show feel small and intimate, Switchfoot left Portland with a very wholesome and memorable evening.
