Some of Portland's most famous '80s rockers will unite in honor of legendary club owner Tony DeMicoli. In the early 1980s, Portland experienced a golden age of homegrown live music where fans filled clubs to listen to local bands that would soon sign major label deals and tour internationally. At the center of it, DeMicoli was one of the most respected club owners and promoters of the era—starting with his essential punk and art rock venue The Long Goodbye, followed by Luis’ La Bamba Club, and then finally Key Largo, which he owned and managed for over a decade. DeMicoli provided a stage for hundreds, if not thousands, of artists over his club career, and now three of the biggest draws from the '80s—Nu Shooz, Quarterflash and Jon Koonce of Johnny and the Distractions—are getting together for one night only! Relive those glory days in tribute to Tony DeMicoli and recognize the impact he had on live music in Portland.
