    I'm telling you guys this a few days early, so you can fit it into your busy little lives: This Friday, director Richard Stanley will be in Portland for a screening of Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Dr. Moreau . If you remember 1996's The Island of Dr. Moreau , seeing a documentary about the making of that movie might sound like an awful idea.

    IF SUMMER CANNIBALS feel any sort of pressure - pressure to follow up their acclaimed debut album, No Makeup , after being named one of Portland's best new bands last year - they are not letting on. I ask if they felt any expectations or urgency with the recording and release of their sophomore album, Show Us Your Mind , and they laugh.

  11. Good Morning, News: Vengeance for Falsely Accused Black Shoppers,...Read the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Feb 24 | The Pordland Mercury

    Let's start out the morning with a little outrage: Sift through the particulars of six fairly egregious "shopping while black" suits local law firm Kafoury & McDougal have filed this month, and gape at the wild claims local shopkeepers will make when confronted with a black customer. All the city's news outlets are playing up the mugshot of a guy named David Bartol, who's accused of helping torture a man with a belt sander and other implements at a SE Portland body shop as part of some old fashioned East Portland white supremacist misdeeds.

    The general manager of Radio Cab had just looked on, agog, as the board that regulates Portland's taxi market decided to flood city streets with hundreds of new cabs in coming months.

    SABERTOOTH MICRO FEST: KURT VILE AND THE VIOLATORS, THE MINDERS, THE SHIVAS On the second night of the Crystal Ballroom's three-day Sabertooth Micro Fest, Philadelphia-based songwriter Kurt Vile drops by for a one-off tour date that should provide the perfect opportunity for him to unveil material off the eagerly anticipated follow-up to his 2013 release, Wakin on a Pretty Daze .
