here's why i like the towne lounge-
1. chantelle is portland's nicest booker.
2. juliette is a rad bartender and did shots of tequilla with us when dark skies played there.
3. small room, small stage
i agree it's somewhat of a difficult club cuz no p.a., bad location, but like petey says, it's sort of the best we got.
the know is great, we've played there a few times, but they only book weekends so it's hard to get a show there.
sabala's is rock and roll, but unless it's a dead moon show i think that room is too big.when we played there with the champs it was cool, though.
i haven't checked out the tonic lately. last time i saw a show there it was all fuckin' joeys.
food hole has no drinks and is a show space, not a bar.
dunes smells like cocaine and has no cheap beer. but can be fun. usually i feel too clostrophobic in there.
we're about to play at the doug fir with the immortal lee county killers, so hopefully we can scuzz up the place a little with beer, sweat, and riffs. it seems like a yuppie bar for hipsters, but we'll see.
and cort, portland is a totally different town these days. there's still cool stuff but it aint a freak scene like it was back then. but there's always dead moon.
