Yes — the past few weeks have been filled with an onslaught of announcements of national acts coming to Portland (thanks to Lauren at the State Theatre and other bookers). Here are a few national acts coming to our city this spring and summer that we think you should checkout — unless it’s a sold-out show (looking at you, Neutral Milk Hotel). . . . → Read More: The HillyTown Portland National Preview
Predictably, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper had an excellent, crowded show at SPACE Gallery, which she always talks about as being her home venue (we’ll never forget that time she hushed a sold out, talkative crowd there before she was even very well-known locally). It’s always great to see her back on that stage, and . . . → Read More: Lady Lamb and Kaki King Played SPACE [12.4.12]
Today, VICE premiered the video for Sontiago‘s song, “Muscle Car,” featuring Therese Workman from Oh My Goodness (who we’ve been harassing forever to play a show, and will continue to do so). It’s a fun track and the video is just a big old Portland love fest for us with so many familiar faces making . . . → Read More: New Sontiago video – “Muscle Car” + Lady Lamb news
Noticing a theme here? On Wednesday, December 15, Lady Lamb and The Milkman’s Union (who have been recording together in Brooklyn) kicked off a brief tour at Union Hall in Park Slope along with their local pals Cuddle Magic.

One of the first acts to really land on our radar at HillyTown and make a big impact was Lady Lamb The Beekeeper. It’s been a couple years now since that first show we caught at Slainte, and Aly Spaltro has since toured extensively, gotten amazing press, and moved to Brooklyn. This week, I . . . → Read More: Lady Lamb Brooklyn Studio Visit, SPACE Saturday!

This past weekend, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper won the award for “Best Folk Artist” at the Boston Music Awards. That poll’s “Artist of the Year,” Amanda Palmer, went on a bit of a Twitter spree about her love for the new young artist. Today, Aly Spaltro (who has obviously not quite settled in NY . . . → Read More: New Lady Lamb Album + BMA
This time it’s a bit more official than the shaky live video I posted the other day. Apparently Aly has made it down to Brooklyn, where she filmed this single-take video for “Between Two Trees.” Check it out:
