The new film "Merely Observations" might just be the most beautiful thing you'll see today

The new film Merely Observations from Gnarly Bay is anything but. Get ready for a journey into the soul.

From the opening scene to the last, each moment is a moving portrait. Through a series of scenes pieced together like memories, there is a serene narration that washes over you with humble pontification.

The hopeful and inspiring track "Frygar Dreams of Sunshine" sways with the film as it makes one statement: Life is beautiful.

THIS SATURDAY: Set The Summer On Fire at Hott Summer Nights!

It's time again. We're excited to announce our 4th Annual Hott Summer Nights Party. THIS SATURDAY beginning at 2pm at Marmoset HQ (2105 SE 7th), we're ending the summer right with good company: a killer lineup of bands, food carts and you.

With doors opening and fun starting at 2pm, we'll be hosting hott performances from the likes of King Tuff, Magic Sword, The Donkeys and Willis Earl Beal among many others on two stages, including one on our brand new patio. Each set will rotate back and forth between the two stages -- meaning non-stop live music all day and all night.

What goes hand in hand with summer? Complimentary ice cream scooped from Salt & Straw? Check. how about ice cold beer that flows like a river, courtesy of our friends at Basecamp Brewery? Check. Not to mention our very own specialty poured drinks featuring handcrafted gin and whiskey from our friends at Portland's House Spirits? We got you. Hungry? Boké Bowl will be one of three food trucks, serving their delicious dumplings. We'll also have games like corn-hole and ping-pong, a photo booth (for evidence), and yes...clowns.

Doors and fun starts at 2pm, live music from Hustle & Drone begins at 3pm sharp.

Wanna hang with us? Reach out to our Community Ambassador, Stirling Myles for an invitation at: stirling@marmosetmusic.com

Acts like Marmoset Band, Hustle & Drone will be blowing minds at the party. Check out their amazing music video for "The Glow" as they take over The Moda Center -- home of our beloved Trailblazers.

Make sure to catch Marmoset Band, The Domestics as they prove why they're one of Portland's most acclaimed bands (ranked #2 in Willamette Week's Best New Bands of 2015). Listen to their cover of Leonard Cohen's track "Memories" that's pure fire.

You don't want to miss the baddassery and experience that is King Tuff. Prepare to get your face melted multiple times with songs like "Black Moon Spell."
