This week there were 2 more priority hit and runs, an injury accident at 37th & Hawthorne, as well as 5 traffic stops.

All the “Q” (Quality of Life) calls are wanted persons or suspicious vehicle or persons. Most of the “PP” (Proactive Policing) calls were welfare checks, community policing, or pedestrian stops. There was one traffic stop at 50th & Woodward. There’s a lot to learn about these “Q” and “PP” categories.

THIS WEEKEND!

FRIDAYKNRK 94/7 FM Portland presents PASSPORT APPROVED - LIVE

There’s that wonderful moment where you learn to trust a venue’s booker. A small venue like Jade Lounge doesn’t get enough attention, but it’s been a solid place to see small shows for years. “Beware of the Crows“… how could you not want to listen? The Goatee Brothers (tag themselves as freak folk / alt country) sound like a good time. (The Goatee Brothers were linked on the show’s entry, so maybe it’s from another project? The lack of basic promo acumen in this era of easy-to-use interfaces like Soundcloud and Bandcamp perplexes me. /rant) Landon Jenkinson, Lauren Kershner, Gareth Harman 2342 SE Ankeny St. * 8 – 10:30 pm * free

Doug Fir’s hosting Passport Approved, with Death by Chocolate (Switzerland), Evol Walks (Australia), Sean Kelly. It’s a $1 show, so knowing Doug Fir it’ll probably sell out.

SATURDAY

Goodness from Beachmaster & Citizen Patrol. Please follow this link for an important message from (our) Citizen Patrol. The Lovecraft, 821 SE Grand * 8 pm – 9 pm * ?? 

Rock n roll with Patrimony, Don Quixote, Boat Race Weekend at Firkin Tavern. 1937 SE 11th * 7 – 10 pm * free 

SUNDAY

Sunday is for the Timbers. I know you really don’t follow sports… but the lads are on a roll. They made the playoffs and have to win against the Vancouver Whitecaps to advance. MLS does a two-game aggregate for their playoffs, but since the Cascadian rivals tied 0-0 last Sunday, it’s a winner-takes-all scenario.  Here’s the scouting report for Sunday’s game.

Richmond Police Calls: 10/27 – 11/2

There were two more hit and runs this week. Both listed as “priority”, whatever that means. I have plenty of questions for Portland Police about what these categories mean specifically, the difference between a priority and a regular call, and how to track crimes on a weekly basis. It seems like most vehicle accidents are hit and runs… probably because drivers know they’ll probably never be caught.

I emailed the PPB media rep about getting a description on the vehicle / driver for the hit and runs from last week, but he didn’t respond. Looks like I’ll have to enlist help from the neighborhood groups. Basic information on all the nonsense that goes down every day in our neighborhoods is not too much too ask. We’ll keep you posted…

THIS WEEKEND!

FRIDAY 

Black Water is a vegetarian metal bar with plans to brew its own beer. I guess that could happen other places, but it perfectly suited for this town. Tonight has cover-band costumes with: Last Rockers [as vice squad], Dripping Jaws [as la’s x] 835 NE Broadway * 8 pm * $3

SATURDAY

Builders and the Butchers are playing Bunk Bar tonight in celebration of ten years since its founding. Opening is Hillstomp, an awesome roots / blues band that usually plays bigger rooms. 1028 SE Water Ave. * 9 pm * $13

Built without city approval 25 years ago, Burnside Skatepark is one of Portland’s best example of DIY community and ingenuity. As part of the quarter century celebration, the skatepark’s board of directors wants to raise $40,000 on gofundme for “new additions, lights installed, a new door way, and paint for art and surface care.” Nearly $32,000 as been raised as of this posting, and their deadline was Oct. 1st.

Beginning at noon, 10 bands are scheduled to play. Donations are accepted, but it’s free to skate. The skatepark is under the eastside of the Burnside bridge, so it is protected from the rain— helpful for the bands as well as the skaters.
