    A grandmother, two rock stars, and a laptop walk into Jackpot! Recording Studio -is Keep It Like A Secret some new kinda joke? Inside the guitar-laden central chamber of a sound-baffled workshop painted a bright shade of honeydew we'll call Weezer Green, a dressed-down cross-section of upper-echelon indie Portland sat expectantly as Larry Crane balanced a laptop on music stand near large microphone. Watching the Tape-Op publisher and legendary recording engineer nimbly fiddle with A/V cords arouses certain masterclass thrills, but first time visitors to comedy showcase Keep It Like A Secret might've figured he was the world's most over-qualified roadie for a tech-themed prop comic.

    The offbeat workplace sitcom Parks and Recreation has always found humor in the dullness of government work, while also celebrating the world of music. From '90s hitmakers like Ginuwine and Letters to Cleo to indie-rock heavyweights the Decemberists and Jeff Tweedy to Pawnee's own Mouse Rat and Duke Silver, musical subplots were constantly on the horizon.

    Feb 12, 2015 |

    Wild Child's gentle, folk-inspired pop-rock combines the fey, understated, orchestral warmth of the Decemberists with the willowy old-timey gypsy-jazz grace of Jolie Holland.

    Feb 16, 2015 |

But then Portland's finest proponents of articulate, intellectual and evermore interesting indie folk-pop have probably always been trying to avoid the obvious with good cause.
