LIVE & LOCAL
Fans of EDM can certainly get their fill this Saturday, April 8th at Flask Lounge. Local DJs Kreitzman and Cole Horne will be rocking the beats for a four hour B2B house set.
For those that don’t know B2B (back-to-back) is when two DJs are set up to play simultaneously playing back and forth from track to track. That means for four hours these two talented Portland-based artists will be bouncing house music tracks off of each other to keep you moving all night long!

UK-based rockers The Heavy Heavy are making a trip across the pond and stopping in Portland for an intimate performance at Portland House of Music & Events on Tuesday, April 11th.
The feel-good five piece is known for pumping out good vibes and great tunes with their music, which often gives a nostalgic nod to the rock and roll of yesterday, drawing a ton of inspiration in their music from that of the late 60s & early 70s. You can be sure you’ll have a good time and be in a great mood dancing along with any of the tracks they choose to play from their extensive catalogue.

Speaking of intimate, don’t miss out on your chance to get up close and personal with New York-based rapper Homeboy Sandman at Gritty McDuff’s this Friday, April 7th. Returning for his second performance at Gritty’s, Homeboy Sandman has gained a loyal following for his sharp lyrics and melodic flow.
This is perhaps the biggest artist to perform at Gritty’s, and judging from his appearance last year, you can be sure that this will be an amazing show you won’t want to miss. Add in the fact that you get to see this big name artist in such an intimate venue, without paying anything to get through the door, and you should be ready to mark yourself as busy this Friday night.
