Nuggets Night


Slabtown (map) Northwest
Sat., Dec. 15, 9 p.m. 2012 21+

Slabtown's Nuggets Night is one of our city's coolest annual music-related events. Every year, assorted Portland power-pop/punk kinfolk gather under the bar's roof to pay tribute to the indescribably influential '60s US garage compilation, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968, an album whose curator, Lenny Kaye (later of Patti Smith's backing band), incidentally coined the term "punk rock" in reference to the bands on the record. On top of simply being an awesome premise for a covers show, the event has always been for a good cause; it began as a benefit for none other than Question Mark himself of ? and the Mysterians, and this sixth Nuggets Night is no exception. Proceeds will go toward the Oregon Music Hall of Fame's scholarship fund, and a portion of bar sales will be donated to WFMU and legendary garage label Norton Records, both of which were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
