Ubergoth-purist musical selections notwithstanding, this is the most approachable, unpretentious goth night in Portland. The drinks are amazing, the food is decent & plentiful, and there's a patio you can smoke on. Plus, friendly spooky people. Five (dead) stars.

Oregon authors Matt Love and Willy Vlautin read tonight from their latest works in the intimate Broadway Books.

The raucous, brawling duo of Pure Country Gold are ready to foist their new album Tough Tuesday upon the world, and for the release show they're inviting all their closest friends to get blind drunk at their favorite watering hole. That includes you, so booze up and watch 'em blast the doors off legendary Northeast dive Club 21 which is just a stagger away from the legendary Northeast Mercury offices. Guess we're not driving. NED LANNAMANN Undoubtedly punk as all fuck, the unruly boys of Pure Country Gold are popping the tops of countless domestic beers tonight in celebration of their brand new album, Tough Tuesday. Bar bands come and go, but none can come close to the sloppy anthems and boozy rasp of frontman Petey Foss along with his drumkit-punishing partner in crime, Jake Welliver. PCG know what the ringing ears and bruised livers of its target audience crave, so the band initially stocked Tough Tuesday exclusively in the best dive bar jukeboxes Portland has to offer. Fittingly, tonight's show will be at the delightfully dumpy Club 21, where the PBR flows freely and the air is equal parts oxygen and tater-tot grease. EZRA ACE CARAEFF free
