The Food, Drink and Music Issue

Portland has a fine palate for food, drink and music. In issue #17, we take a look at the intrinsic connection between the purveyors of food and drink in this city and those who make the sweet sounds that fill our ears, exploring food and music pairings at Pickathon and Serenade as well as the band-beverage connection. Read the musical histories of Voodoo Doughnut's Tres Shannon and Pok Pok's Andy Ricker, plus learn how touring musicians eat healthy on the road, which venues have the best eats, and plenty more.

We also hear new music from metal stalwarts YOB and Witch Mountain alongside rising talents Chanti Darling, No Kind of Rider, Fritzwa and Samuel Eisen-Meyers and look back at the career of blues legend Norman Sylvester.
