MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment, blending brassy funk, rock, and jazz, with a visual dazzle of acrobats, stilters and more. Their fourth studio album, Magic Number, was recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana with Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael "Count" Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Galactic, Trombone Shorty) at the helm. The album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you'd expect from M4, plus a healthy dose of New Orleans magic, with guest appearances by Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums), and Matt Perrine (sousaphone). The album was fan-funded through Kickstarter. See MarchFourth live at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre
Sunday October 22, 2017 / 5:00pm (Doors open at 4:00 pm)
An American folk icon, Tom Paxton graces the Alberta Rose stage with his original and timeless folk-song repertoire, classic voice and presence. Paxton has become a voice of his generation, addressing issues of injustice and inhumanity, laying bare the absurdities of modern culture and celebrating the tenderest bonds of family, friends and community. As Pete Seeger said, "Tom's songs have a way of sneaking up on you. You find yourself humming them, whistling them, and singing a verse to a friend. Like the songs of Woody Guthrie, they're becoming part of America." The DonJuans is the long-awaited performing duo comprised of Grammy-winning songwriters Don Henry and Jon Vezner. Enjoy this folk concert at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre.
