Portland's Summer Scene: Catch These Shows Around Town!

It's official. Summer has arrived. 

If you're not listening to music while floating down a body of water or while relaxing on a warm beach — in the company of several hundred other people — is it really summer at all?

Whatever you decide to do over the next couple months, don't forget to support your local music scene. We've got the complete Portland list below so you can get up and go! For each performance, we've curated summer visuals to capture what each artist's vibe resembles.  Which one aligns with your summer vibe? 

Marmoset Tribe Mars

Who: Tribe Mars

Where: Mississippi Studios

When: July 6th, 2018

What the artist sounds like: Soulful and hip-hop rooted, Tribe Mars can best be described as smooth and easy-listening.  Walking on clouds, Tribe Mars creates a feeling of transcending above everything. Like a long sweat-drenched hike with no end in sight, there's an elated moment of tranquilness as you emerge above nature, the city, all life below you. Listen to  "Soul Syrup" to channel a revelatory change in scenery. 

 

 

Who: Jeremy Enigk

Where: Doug Fir Lounge

When: July 11th, 2018

What the artist sounds like: Orchestral rock, relish in the rebellious and carefree soundscape of Enigk's work. "Late of Camera" emotes that feeling of hopping chain linked fences to sneak into closed swimming pools — it's that adrenaline pumping moment before jumping into the cool water.

Lemuria Marmoset Summer.jpg

Who: Lemuria

Where: Holocene

When: August 5th, 2018

What the artist sounds like: Indie rock with a dash of punk, Lemuria is a group that's constantly reinventing themselves and their sound. Songs like "More Tunnel" make us feel in touch with our confident side. Just like being immersed in the vast ocean before surfing to shore, it's that moment of letting self-doubt go and owning the waves.

 

Who: Blossom

Where: Mississippi Studios 

When: August 24th, 2018

What the artist sounds like: Both fiery and cool, Blossom's vocals are timeless while still being at the top today's game. The laid back mood that permeates off of Blossom's music channels our summer cruising vibes. "Video" is that partial sun-kissed feeling with our feet hanging out of the car window — it's about kicking back and enjoying summer's fleeting moments.
