One reason I wanted to move to Portland so many years ago is I wanted to live in a town where all my favorite bands actually played. Turns out, I see even fewer concerts here than I did living in the South. Maybe that's because I'm becoming old and prone to early bedtimes, but I also think it's because it's hard to choose between all of the good shows. Lately, I've been making an effort, though. I saw two Wild Flag shows, and this weekend I'm going to see Tennis with Dirty Mittens.
But here are some photos from one pole that shows just what a typical week of concerts in Portland looks like.
