There is some music that is just made for enjoying with a side of Mary Jane, and it doesn’t get much better than the sounds of Sublime. While Sublime (or Sublime with Rome, at least) won’t be in town, you can get the next best thing with nationally touring Sublime tribute band Badfish performing at the State Theatre on 4/20!
Badfish have made a name for themselves across the country for continuing the legacy that Sublime left with the untimely death of frontman Brad Nowell. The spirit and energy these performers bring to the stage has kept the spirit of Sublime alive and well on stage, and they will surely be ready to party and celebrate the “holidaze” with you this Thursday.

Don’t miss your chance to catch an intimate show with folk artist The Dead Tongues at Oxbow Blending & Bottling. The Dead Tongues’ Ryan Gustafson is stopping in Portland during a Northeast tour and will be playing hits from his five albums, including the latest, “Dust,” which he calls his best. Finding itself somewhere between American jamband and his typical banjo-centric folk, Dust tells the story of his rebirth into music, after nearly giving up the lifestyle just before the creation of the album.
Catch this unique folk lyricist in an intimate venue Tuesday, April 25th. Check the link below for full details.
If you find yourself a bit low energy on 4/20 (and who could blame you?), you’ve got a chance to go all out on Friday, April 21st at Citrus with their 4/20 Afterparty!
Partnered with Fire on Fore, Citrus will have tons of giveaways and specialty drinks, and beginning at 10PM, get ready to rage to tech house music with WessUp and Dionamic straight through to last call. Use all that energy you saved while melting into your couch the day before, and go ham to bass and beats all through the night. Click below for more information.
