If you’re a fan of authentic hardcore punk, you won’t want to miss TREE at Sun Tiki Studios this Friday, March 10th at 7:00PM.
TREE made a name for themselves leaving their Boston homes in the 90s and touring across the country, and they are back at it in 2023, uniting fans new and old through their heavy riffs and grooving breakdowns. This week, they’re in Portland, playing alongside prog rockers Sunrunner and Portland’s own Exclave.
