When The World Goes Dark, Music Is Our Light

In a blink, Covid-19 devastated the music industry. Together, we'll adapt and evolve.

During these times of uncertainty, it's more important than ever to shine a light on information that provides hope and offers perspective beyond overwhelming coronavirus stats. We will continue to tell stories of our #PDXmusic community.

Plus, this issue also features new music from Sir Nai, Isabeau Waia'u Walker, Frankie Simone and Gaytheist as well as the 40th anniversary of Wipers' debut LP Is This Real?
