The road to Austin, Texas, is 2,055 miles long, and that's without any detours along the way. Which means any Portland band that wants to play the annual South by Southwest music conference/festival/clusterfuck has their work cut out for them. Every year, though, a clutch of Portland bands valiantly make their way south for a hard-earned slice of that SXSW pie. And for the second year running, there's been a Portland home-away-from-home—a special showcase for many of the Portland acts that find themselves down there. It's one of the best parties in a week of very good parties, and tonight's a fundraiser to help the organizers get it done. Funk-party purveyors the Chicharones and rockers Rags and Ribbons and 1776 will be there, along with Electric Ill, the new nocturnal-synth outfit of Viva Voce's Kevin Robinson. NED LANNAMANN
