As well as having a wonderfully rowdy Thursday night karaoke sesh, Montavilla Station has live music Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. It’s awesome that there’s even more live music nearby, and I’m happy to help spread the word. After spending more than a few minutes scouring the Internet searching for their schedule, the following photo is the extent of their (old school cool) promotion. It’s a little hard to read so:

Fri- Billy Hagen

Sat- Bonnie Lee Plan B

Sun- Bolt Upright Blues Jam



As part of FESTIVAL LATINO, “Inside Out” (Spanish with English subtitles) will be the outdoor movie shown on the big inflatable screen. It’s a Pixar film exploring the perspective of a girl adjusting to a cross-country move. Grupo Antifaz, will open the show. Glenhaven Park, NE 82nd Ave & Siskiyou St * band 5:30 pm., movie 7:30 p.m.


At Duff’s Garage: ThunderFUNK is the hottest jazz/funk hybrid mini-big band experience to ever rock this corner of the world. 2530 NE 82nd Ave * 9 pm * ???


Both Montavilla and Lents have regular farmers markets on Sunday… on the map below, it’s clear most of the farmers markets are close in. Farmers markets are a proven concept, and I hope to see more popping up in East Portland and Gresham in the near future.

Gresham does have a Saturday farmers market— and its celebrating its 30th anniversary this season. Downtown Gresham, NW Eastman Parkway & NW Burnside * 8:30 am – 2:30 pm

So does Rockwood! Plaza del Sol at SE 187th St between E Burnside & SE Stark * Sunday, 11 am – 3 pm
