A message on Mississippi.

A message on Mississippi.

Wow what a CRAZY few months 2013 has been. Government’s kicking into high gear with empathetic bandwagon campaigns as well as personal loss and growth. The ambitions of a few are affecting the lives of many and we turn to our individual aesthetics to get us trudging through the rut of things. Headphones, sweaty garages of strangers, or a night with the wax takes us back to better times. As spring comes about the weather clears up and the festivals,street fairs, and outdoor performances come alive.

Live @ Lunch is a concert series on the campus of Portland State University hosted by Portland State Professional Sound. Tobin and his crew work very hard to bring the student body great musicians from the Portland area. Deli Magazine’s February artist of the month Just Lions as well as nationally know Y La Bamba’s female vocalist Luz Mendoza are just a few that show up to play. Interested in hearing math rock, jazz arrangements, or some EMD the park blocks is the place to eat your lunch.

If you like cozy, intimate, and friendly I would highly recommend checking out the Bing Lounge. They host KPSU 2013 Radio Revival as well as many mid-day events. Les Raquet from Brooklyn, New York to Portland’s very own Tiger Houϟe, the Bing’s stage has seen many musicians from across America. Being able to take part of these shows involves ‘liking’ their facebook page and emailing their coordinator when you are updated on a free show. The 21+ crowd is always treated to free brew from Lagunitas and the kiddos get pizza
