I'll assume that you are already well versed in the glory that is Pure Country Gold, a two-man amalgamation of all the finest, footstompin'-est elements of rock and roll, country, and rhythm and blues our city has to offer. Tonight's lesson, then, is to get to know Club 21. A long-standing bastion of Northeast Portland dive culture, Club 21 served throughout the '90s as the unofficial lounge to neighboring punk rock/strip club EJ's, a source to get boozed up before/after shows. Alas, EJ's is long gone, but Club 21 remains—still so beloved by Portland musicians for its stiff drinks and unassuming atmosphere that a compilation CD was made in its honor (to which tonight's performers contributed). Experience the magic for yourselves tonight.
