With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of stilt walkers, hoopers and Vaudeville-style dancers, MarchFourth! whips audiences into a celebratory frenzy with an over-the-top spectacle of high-energy compositions, colorful costumes, hilarious stage shenanigans, and irresistible charisma!
This is not a band that simply “puts on a show.” MarchFourth! delivers a multi-faceted, indelible experience for those who are lucky enough to be in attendance. If you have ever been to one of their performances then you know it is all this and more. If you have yet to see one, make it your week’s priority for this is one of the most entertaining shows yet! With a tour schedule of more than 100 shows per year, let’s give them a good homecoming by coming out to welcome them back to Portland.
