Why You Won't Make It Big In Portland

Can a band really make it big in Portland? What does that even mean anymore? Issue #8 asks these question and explores possible answers. Really, it’s not that you can’t make it big here, but while you’re on your way to the big time, you should take some advice from those who have made it (featuring input from Storm Large, Chris Funk of The Decemberists, Hutch Harris of The Thermals and Zia McCabe of The Dandy Warhols) as well as those in the process of making it (like Robin Bacior, Mo Troper of Good Cheer Records, Annie Ostrowski of Riot Act Media and Jeff Bond).

Plus, find out about Northwest Fests in our summer guide, read features on Laura Gibson and Summer Cannibals, and learn how to book gigs from local experts!

Five percent of all pay-what-you-want subscriptions support The Jeremy Wilson Foundation's medical emergency efforts and your local music community.
