Making a bid to officially convert Portland to "Rock City" with the sheer sonic force of one show, the folks at Dante's have assembled something of a familiar line-up in these parts--but don't let familiarity dilute the fact that these hard-working gentlemen do their damndest to BRING IT everytime. And for that, they deserve your respect.

Black Swans

At Music millennium

From the creative well-spring of Columbus, OH comes the bleak prophecy of the Black Swans--a stripped-down orchestral folk ensemble revolving around vocalist Jerry DeCicca. I've heard the band described as a cross 'tween Bonnie "Prince" Billy and the Tindersticks--and while that might set something of an impossible standard, it's the most apt a description I can imagine for DeCicca's maudlin delivery.

Thorn City Improv

At conan's

After over two years at the Ash Street, booker Anthony Sanchez has jumped ship for Conan's--and he's taking Thorn City Improv with him. As city's most established weekly hiphop event, Thorn City Improv has spent the last two years focusing on the continued pursuit of Portland's hiphop voice--with regular representatives from Boom Bap Project and Oldominion, among others. Tonight they're joined by Cool Nutz, DJ Chill, and Santotzin.
