A Festival of Townes Van Zandt

Tonight you can watch Be Here to Love Me, the 2004 documentary of songwriter's songwriter Townes Van Zandt, but the real treat will be the set of covers performed live by some of Portland's most capable singer/songwriters, including Rebecca Gates of the Spinanes and Richard Shirk of Soft Tags, performing as the Glorious First of June. Australian troubadour Darren Hanlon will also be present—he's been spending plenty of time in these parts lately, slumming it with Portland musicians. His latest album, I Will Love You at All (recorded in Portland, naturally), is a tremendous collection on par with Van Zandt's own, so seeing one cover the other should be a treat. NED LANNAMANN
