Tonight's the record release show for new Portland band And I Was Like, What?

Uh, what?

No, that's their name. And I Was Like, What? .... got it? The group includes members of other bands like AristeiA, Songs from the Rodeo, and Emma Hill, and the EP is called Grand Delusions. It's the sound of four friends who grew up in the PacNW, crusing from the coast to the forest to the desert, with some hints of pop, country, and indefinable Northwest flavor lining the rough-hewn songs. It's a really good listen. See listen for yourself:

And I Was Like, What? - "Selfish and With Good Reason"

The release show takes place at the Twilight Cafe and Bar, 1420 SE Powell, 9 pm, $3. Other bands on the bill: Someday Tricycle, Eighteen Individual Eyes, and the Oregon Donor.
