A little relief for NorCal tonight

Northwest locals were devastated when fires took over the Columbia River Gorge over the summer. Seeing destruction of that magnitude happen to your hometown is simultaneously saddening and numbing, but does sort of strengthen the community. Bearing in mind that many of us moved here from another place anyway, it makes sense that we'd do what we can for those who've just experienced this in Northern California.

Last month Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Butte and Solano counties were hit with a series of 21 wildfires that devastated wine country and surrounding NorCal terrain. This slew of fires included one of the most destructive in California wildfire history, the Tubbs Fire, so there's much about the area that needs to be rebuilt.

A few Portland bands are getting together shortly to help raise some funds, with some raffles taking place in-between sets. A few of the musicians playing tonight have called California (but more specifically, Northern California) their home at one point in time, so this benefit show is a bit more personal. Enjoy some harsh hardcore punk from Worws, Phantom Family and Dead Tropics, along with a bit of a bluegrass twang from the Lonesome Valley Pussyfooters. Art and other fun things from Green Noise Records, Scapegoat Tattoo, Grizzly Tattoo, Oddball Tattoo and Josh McQuary will be raffled away betwixt the bands, and all proceeds will be given to UndocuFund. Seeing as tons of undocumented families and workers have been affected by the fires and won't be receiving federal aid, they are some of the most vulnerable beings in cases like these. 

Music for tonight's NorCal relief benefit at Tonic Lounge starts at 9pm. Entry is $8 with larger donations being accepted, with raffle tickets running one for $3 or two for $5.





New Ronnie Vega EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Lost Vega Vol. 1 is the new EP from Ronnie Vega. It unifies the grimy immediacy of punk and hip-hop, two genres that have historically crossed paths. Echoing the daily grind, these tracks shake with a sense of focused desire and desperation. Vega & Co. are slated to perform at LAVA Space this Wednesday, November 8, as part of a lineup that also includes Todd Killingz, Cult Objects, and Ohioans Vacation.

New Hound LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Born Under 76, the new LP from the hard-rockin' trio of Hound, was recently released, with Let's Pretend Records handling vinyl and cassette formats, while CDs are available via SRA Records. Oozing an inherent vocal-commanding, riff-galvanizing, classically heavy sound, a loose, energetic clarity resounds. Saturated in fuzz and quaking backend, the band finds a manner to channel its, at times, psych-inflected, adrenaline-laced tone, while maintaining a tank full of fun. That dynamic groove/riff combo seeps into your skull, and won’t let go.





Debut Hellrad EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Counting Sins is the new album from the trio of heavy, known as Hellrad. Featuring former members of JavelinaEat The Turnbuckle, and Jail, the band submerges one in a brutal bass-quaking, percussion-smattering onslaught. Nonstop, cavernous grooves weld with guttural, guiding vocals and thunderous riffs, producing an ever-advancing brand of sludge. Currently in the midst of a stretch across Europe, Hellrad will be back in town at Century on Friday, November 17, on a lineup that also includes Traitor, Night Raids, and Suppressive Fire.
