Portland’s Burning – A Tribute to The Clash

z-mofuckingclash.gifLast night a friend and I hit the Clash tribute at The Doug Fir. What a fun event! Each band played three songs or so and the set changes were pretty quick. The show still lasted until after midnight, but I hardly noticed. After all, Thursday is the new Friday! The crowd was a little more push-and-shove than normal for a Fir show. In spite of standing back by the soundbooth, it seemed like I was being bumped a lot.

There was a band with a couple of horns that I particularly liked but I have no clue who they were. All I can really say about them is that they had a ska vibe going on and sounded good. All of the bands seemed to be having fun and some were better than others but since I have no idea who any of them were, it’s pretty tough to say anything else about it. I was also maybe a little distracted by conversation during a lot of the show, but heck, if I’d wanted to be in my own little world, I’d have gone by myself!

Big thanks to the Doug Fir for hosting such a fun event for free!
