Portland’s own Bruce Springsteen Birthday Bash, Bruce-Fest, is going down this Saturday, September 27th at Bubba’s Sulky Lounge. I’d link to their website, but it seems to be down at the moment – no matter, you know where Bubba’s is (ahem, 92 Portland Street). Bands performing the songs of His Venerable Bossness Of NJ include Elf Princess Gets A Harley, An Evening With, Dan Knudsen, Rick Wormwood and the Rumbling Proletariat, Metal Feathers, and more. All proceeds (there is a $5 cover) to benefit the Meg Perry Center and the Blackbird Collective, with doors at 9pm. All this info comes via a post on Craigslist with virtually no mention of the event on any of the performers’ websites, so I know as much as you do. Just show up and except to have fun.
This could be a nice prelude to next week at SPACE, which is basically a whole week of near-nightly unheard of awesomeness: These Are Powers + The Rattlesnakes! Dark Meat + Metal Feathers! Japanther + Matt & Kim! Liam Finn! I don’t know if I can handle it. Can you?
