Alberta Rose Theater

The Last Waltz is considered one of the greatest concert documentaries of all time, and whether or not you are a fan of the Band, it was undoubtedly a monumental musical event, with guest appearances from Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Joni Mitchell, and more. The original performance took place on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, and it will be recreated for the second year in a row over two nights by some of Portland's own rock stars, including Kevin and Anita Robinson (Viva Voce, Blue Giant), Jenny Conlee-Drizos (the Decemberists, Black Prairie), and Calico Rose (AgesandAges, Black Prairie). The night is a benefit for Oregon Food Bank and the Jeremy Wilson Foundation, which is dedicated to helping uninsured and underinsured musicians in the Northwest. With Levon Helm's passing in April, it seems even more important to keep musical collaborations like these alive. So, since you have finished stuffing yourself silly, bring some cans to donate and rediscover why every all-star concert since 1976 has ended with "I Shall Be Released." RACHEL MILBAUER
