Scotland Barr Memorial Show: The Slow Drags, I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House, Steve Wilkinson 

When: Sat., July 23, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
When pancreatic cancer took Scott Moritz from us in 2009, it left a life unfinished. The 43-year-old Portlander might be most fondly remembered at every meal, as he was the founder of the addictive crack-in-a-bottle hot sauce known as Secret Aardvark, but he also had another side to him as well. Under the alias of Scotland Barr and backed by the Slow Drags, Moritz was a wonderfully prolific musician whose Americana tunes were an essential piece of Portland music. Years in the making, his delicate rasp returns in We Will Be Forgotten, an ambitious double-disc release that includes posthumous tracks with Moritz on vocals in addition to songs where his friends (Chris Robley, Morgan Geer from Drunken Prayer, and others) step in and sing with the band. Not only is We Will Be Forgotten a heartwarming collection of songs from an artist who was taken from us far too soon, it's a celebration of one man's life and art. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
