Hello, fellow partiers. Let us all revel in the summer heat and become as nocturnal as our jobs will allow. See you down by the river with a 40 of OE. Or choose your own path and click here to search our entire events calendar.
Trivia is back at the Badlander! Prepare for Jugs McGee to slaughter. (Actually, every time I say that, we lose horribly.)
Tuesday trivia has long been dominated by Sean Kelly's, but KBGA is now hosting a trivia night at the VFW. This week featuring all-American factoids. I think it starts around 7.
Old Crow Medicine Show plays the Wilma. This show has been sold out for weeks. I'm guessing the afterpartying will be at the Top Hat.
Um, hi, it is mu'fuggin Independence Day. Eat pancakes. Host a barbecue. March against the status quo with Occupy Missoula. Protest government intrusion of privacy. Drink beer. Eat ice cream. Eat nondairy ice cream. Drink more beer. Watch fireworks. Listen to dubstep. All are equally American-type things to do.
It's First Friday! Don't overdo it with the wine and crackers, 'cause later rad bands play Sean Kellys and the Top Hat (free shows) and VFW (like $5, I think.) The VFW show includes some Portland rock bands, our own Shramana and brand-spanking-new band The Hounds (members of Rooster Sauce and Tidal Horn.)
The fun continues when Wartime Blues, who you may remember as being an excellent Americana-type band, plays a one-off reunion at Stage 112 with Travis Sehorn and Butter.
If you aren't just plum rocked out by now, The Stone Foxes play Stage 112.
