Do you like fun pop rock with thoughtful lyrics, an upbeat air and just a hint of bluegrass? Yes? Well then, you’re going to love the Ascetic Junkies’ newest album, “This Cage Has No Bottom.”
If you’ve heard of Monotonix, you know that their name is synonymous with rollicking, crazy live shows, raw sound and unbeatable energy.

Morning Teleportation might look like your average band of Portlanders, but the minute the members open their mouths, you can tell they aren’t from around here.
Oh the elusive Deelay Ceelay. For a while, the band was playing a lot of shows. Then it went on tour this summer with Starfucker (yeah, the group dropped the name PYRAMIDDD. Thank god.)

Kelly O has made a name for herself in the Pacific Northwest shooting photos for Seattle’s The Stranger. Famous for her column “Drunk of the Week,” she currently has a show running at the IGLOO Art Gallery entitled Floater.
Thanks to Ape Machine, classic rock isn’t dead yet. The local rockers are injecting heavy doses of old-school bluesiness and metal-tinged rock into the indie rock and electro-dominated local scene.
