Veronica & Luke’s Picks:

Femmes Fatales: Sarah Wild, Courtney Noe, Laryssa Birdseye


From their Facebook Event Page: “We may be in the age of boss babes like Beyonce and Rihanna, but the music business is still very much a boys’ club. That’s why three up and coming Portland songstresses are taking matters into their own hands. On Saturday, July 29, Sarah Wild, Courtney Noe and Laryssa Birdseye will bring Femmes Fatales to Kelly’s Olympian, an evening of original pop, rock, and indie performances designed to prove the future is female.”

Inessa’s Picks:

Movie: American Valhalla
When: July 28-Aug 3
Where: Living Room Theaters 341 SW 10th Ave

The fusion of acclaimed independent films, casual cuisine and a full bar offers us a documentary about a musical collaboration:
American Valhalla

“Directed by Andreas Neumann and Joshua Homme, AMERICAN VALHALLA tells the story of an unlikely musical collaboration between two mavericks of American rock: Joshua Homme, frontman of Queens of the Stone Age and Iggy Pop, the Godfather of Punk. The film, co-directed by Homme, follows the recording of Iggy’s final album ‘Post Pop Depression’ in the California desert, with his band comprising of Homme, his QOTSA bandmate Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys’ drummer, Matt Helders, as well as the explosive tour that builds to a crowning performance at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall. Featuring stunning cinematography and intimate access, American Valhalla reveals the growth of an intense bond between the musicians who have taken to heart the mantra: “you risk nothing you gain nothing”.

Music of the Revolution is a benefit concert to raise money for El Programa Hispano an organization that helps support undocumented Latino immigrants and assists with housing, education, employment, elder services, tax services and domestic and sexual violence support, serving 13,000 Latinos per year.

Teri’s Picks:

Artists often use their talents as a platform to help give voice to people and causes as a way of giving back to their communities. This weekend, three esteemed Portland musicians (Fernando, Lisa Mann, and Michael Allen Harrison), have organized benefit concerts for organizations they are passionate about.


Friday, July 28th Music of the Revolution at Laurelthirst

Fernando Viciconte from Fernando Band, has organized a benefit concert, Music of the Revolution, to raise money for El Programa Hispano, an organization that helps support undocumented Latino immigrants by assisting them with housing, education, employment, elder services, tax services, and domestic and sexual violence work. They serve 13,000 Latinos per year. Fernando was once an illegal immigrant himself so knows how difficult and stigmatizing it can be for these families and tries to do what he can to help. His band, along with Trujillo, and Tin Silver will perform.
