Live Music Nightly. Never a cover, always awesome! #RockthePickle
We add to our calendar as bookings are confirmed.
Austin Quattlebaum - March 1 + 2 @ 7pm
Austin Quattlebaum brings more to the table than just music. With his warm infectious smile he brings people together, encouraging comradeship and building community. Though it's undeniable that he loves the music and he’s a hell of a banjo picker to boot. Offering rowdy singer/songwriter solo shows, he blends gritty originals and tasteful covers, weaving together 3 finger banjo, clawhammer and flat-picking guitar songs into his sets. Sung with a bit of gravel in his throat, his sultry tunes are sure to keep the crowds attention.
Hollis Peach - March 3 + 4 @ 9pm
“...the perfect fit for our show and venue. Their music, vibe and connection to the audience was palpable, profound, and a true joy for all"
— Shannon Talbot, Bend Summer Concert Series
Malachi Graham & Jamie Stillway - March 5, 6 + 7 @ 7pm
Malachi Graham presents punchy female-fronted alt-Americana. Malachi's forceful, nuanced electric guitar and unaffected voice is backed by Jamie Stillway on bass. On her debut EP Selfish (2015), Malachi channels female voices that are intoxicating, self-sabotaging, mesmerizing, and not preoccupied with being liked.
Wanderlodge - March 8 + 9 @ 7pm
Matt Cadenelli is a longtime Portland musician and member of such bands as The Don of Division Street, Fernando, Brothers & Sister, Dr. Theopolis, Portland Country Underground, and others. Weaving together musical styles from Wilco to Nick Lowe to The Kinks to Neil Young, his sounds feature song-centric, melodious vistas aligned with insightful lyrical musings.
Boy & Bean - March 10 + 11 @ 9pm
Boy and Bean, local swing/jazz trio, has made a name for themselves with their faithful covers— with a modern twist— of Depression-era songs from the ’20s, ’30s. Husband-and-wife duo Luke Short and Amber Short harmonize beautifully on vocals, with Luke also on guitar, and Andrew Jones on bass. Covering songs by The Mills Brothers, The Boswell Sisters, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and crooners of days-gone-by. Boy and Bean give Depression Era classics a youthful energy that gets audiences of all ages smiling and tapping their toes.
Hip Hatchet - March 12 - 14 @ 7pm
Like many folk songsmiths before him, Hip Hatchet staggers the intersection of romanticized love and everyday trials. Bronchtein’s witty lyrics and sincerity allows him to visit these classic folk tropes and emerge unscathed by the cliches. A musical jack-of-all-trades, Hip Hatchet pulls from his variety of musical experiences, including jazz piano, bluegrass, country, chamber music, and the American singer-songwriter tradition, to create a dynamic, original, and candid sound. Hip Hatchet layers on harmony in a way that builds on the carefully crafted sound to reveal the beauty in our messy, complicated lives.
The Horsenecks - March 15 + 16 @ 7pm
With influences that range from the Skillet Lickers to Earl Scruggs to Dolly Parton, the Horsenecks play the tunes that make them go. Made up of some of Portland's most stalwart Old Time musicians and a couple of new arrivals, they came together naturally in the fall of 2014 and have been playing together ever since, sounding like they've been playing together for years.
The Get Ahead - March 17 + 18 @ 9pm
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, The Get Ahead puts a modern edge on a classic sound. Drawing from the roots of Soul, R&B and Rock, The Get Ahead will send you to the dance floor. Get to a show. Bring your dancing shoes. Unbutton that top few and let's get loose.
The Last Revel - March 19 + 20 @ 7pm
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. The Last Revel trio utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, 5-string banjo, harmonica, kick drum and three-part vocal harmonies together to consistently deliver “Bombastic live performances,” as well as delicate and haunting folk ballads.
McDougall - March 24 + 25 @ 9pm
With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back. Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.
Lewi Longmire - March 26 + 27 @ 7pm
Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own original compositions - Lewi Longmire & the Left Coast Roasters.
Pretty Gritty - March 28-30 @ 7pm
Pretty Gritty is the serendipitous joining of the talents of Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Wolff, both born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. Although they originate from different rock bands, fate brought them together at local “open-mic” nights, where it became evident that they shared an interest in writing and performing songs that mix country, rock, blues, and soul. It’s said that she brings the “pretty” while he brings the “gritty”, combining for an engaging alt-country duo with seducing harmonies and addicting acoustics.
