It's officially springtime, but Portland is still sodden. Still a good time for listening to music indoors! We've started a regular Sunday evening gig at the Muddy Rudder in Portland's Sellwood neighborhood. We're there from 6 to 8:30, so come by and hear us. Of course, there are other gigs coming up, so check them out below. Cheers.
