Chris Young

Editor-In-Chief & Founder

A journalist, editor and advocate of his local music community, Chris is a native Portlander who's always finding ways to surround himself with beautiful, local noise and creativity. As a wide-eyed, industrious sixth grader, Chris devotedly caught his first concert at the Oregon State Fairgrounds where a shape-shifting, accordion-wielding, polka-playing comic set the live music bar high because, little Amlettes or not, the King of Parody (or “Suede”) doing his best imitation of the King of Pop will leave a lasting impression on a supple young mind.
