Welcome to the inaugural episode of Pleased to Meet You! Hosted by Nilina Mason-Campbell, each weekly episode of Pleased to Meet You showcases emerging Portland bands, taking them to unusual and, in some cases, oddly appropriate locales for a quick get-to-know-you session.

First on the docket is Pictorials, the five-piece led by frontman Morgan Nicholson. Fittingly, we took Pictorials to the Sears Portrait Studio for an interview and photoshoot, where we learn about their influences, sound, relationship with Black Moth Super Rainbow, and future ambitions. It's especially timely, too, because after over 60 years in business, Sears Portrait Studio is closing its doors on April 18.

Tune in every Thursday to see who's next up to the pitch...
