The Lords of Portland

After boldly throwing away three years of work only to start from scratch, Portugal. The Man are set to emerge with their most meaningful record yet—and stake their claim as the Rose City’s best band.

From emerging new artists to #PDXmusic veterans to Portland's reigning royalty, this issue includes a guide to Northwest festivals, our continual exploration of The Portland Underground, insights into music licensing, and, in honor of our third birthday, a playlist full of unreleased cuts—and we'll wash it all down with melodious, delicious beer.
