Welcome to Front Row
We all know Portland is a great music city. Our brilliant homegrown bands help set the world’s sonic agenda, whether it’s Sleater-Kinney coming out of nowhere with a staggering comeback album or RAC remixing Foster the People into something we actually want to listen to again. International stars constantly parade through our many local venues. Really, the only problem is figuring out what’s happening, where, and when.
Pull up a seat at Front Row, Portland Monthly’s new one-stop-shop for all things music-related in Stumptown. This is where we bring together all the best venues in one place, as well as playlists, ticket giveaways, and music news and features from our team of writers and critics.
So how does it work? Click on your venue of choice and you’ll find all the shows lined up over the weeks ahead, with direct links to tickets for the ones that tickle our fancy. Or skip the bit where you pay for ‘em, and enter one of our giveaways. Up for grabs this week? A pair of tickets for UK’s indie rock legends The Charlatans, with support from Portland psych-pop supergroup Eyelids. Enter before Tuesday, November 17 to be in with a chance.
You’ll also find all our music coverage—interviews, playlists, concert picks, and reviews—collected here for your reading (and listening) pleasure.
Have at it, Portland!
