East End Five Year Anniversary: Austin Cook, The Lovesores, Tanya, Gun Party, Defect Defect, Di Di Mau, Youthbitch 

When: Sat., Dec. 22, 9 p.m. 2012
For five glorious years, underground Portland bands and music fans alike have found a loving home at the East End bar and music venue. The club carved its niche in embracing an aesthetic and sensibility that hearkened to London's hallowed "East End" scene at the height of its hipness, and has flourished due to excellent booking, staffing, and an atmosphere conducive to maximum rock 'n' roll. They're marking a half decade by recreating 1976's seminal 100 Club Punk Special festival: and Portland's own will cover legendary bands of yesteryear. It's the perfect way to celebrate what's been done and what's yet to come with a fitting lineup of local acts, including two that essentially embody the East End vibe—Di Di Mau (performing Damned songs) and Youthbitch (taking on the Buzzcocks). Both bands are equal parts performance and punk, alternately sullen, snarling, and vivacious, all descriptors that could also apply to a certain side of our city. MARANDA BISH
