Why have one measly record release show when you can have a whole week's worth? That's what the good folks at Banana Stand are doing to mark the release of their Live at the Banana Stand, Volume 2 compilation. (For info on Volume 1 and more about Banana Stand, check out our feature article from last year.) The upcoming album collects live recordings of various top-notch Portland bands who've played at Banana Stand's secret house venue over the past several months, and officially hits the streets on Tuesday, September 3. Take a listen to Radiation City's contribution, a live performance of "Eye of Yours."

From September 1 to September 8, scheduled around and during MusicfestNW, Banana Stand is hosting nine shows at various (public) venues around town—all but one of which are free. Take a look at the super-rad schedule they've cooked up, which also includes an opening art reception at SoHiTek gallery for photos, posters, and artwork from Banana Stand's collaborators; the exhibition will be up all through September. Best of all, you can pick up a free copy of Live at the Banana Stand, Volume 2 at any of these shows.
