MAYORAL INQUISITION!—Normally, when we do endorsement interviews, we pack candidates into our most claustrophobic conference room and shut the door until it's done. Not this time. When we chat with mayoral finalists Charlie Hales and Jefferson Smith, we'd like YOU to join us. So we're having it at a bar and inviting special guests to ask questions, too. Including yours! DCT

LOST SUMMER—Summer's almost over, and if you haven't seen Lost Lander you've failed as a Portlander. They're one of our city's breakout artists of 2012, and for good reason! Their debut album, DRRT, features some damn infectious tunes—they'll get you out of your seat regardless of your mood. So go see 'em and redeem your rep. LC
