Like to see live music? But maybe you're new in town or your tastes run wider than your friends? Join us to catch some great live music in Portland. We like indie rock and pop bands that are doing something new, and we'd like to meet up with others who love new music.

We'll be picking out live shows at local venues, and trying to encourage a bit of social interaction before the shows, to build up some community. Our tastes are pretty broad, so shows may range from indie pop to funk/R&B, world music to basic rock & roll. We'll try to provide some links so you can hear a sample of each artist, but of course everyone's taste differs, so it's up to you to pick something that appeals. Some venues that will feature here include Mississippi Studios, the Doug Fir Lounge, the Aladdin Theater, and plenty more.

The Ground Rules: these are obviously public events, and we are not buying tickets for meetup members in advance - you're on your own to get an advance ticket if that seems necessary. If the Meetup is indicated as "Hosted", a host will set up a place to meet in advance of the show, to have a drink and chat a bit - since that's always a bit hard once the music starts.  Most events will tend toward weekends, but some will surely land on other nights - pick the shows you'd like to attend! If the meetup is not indicated or marked "Unhosted", then it's just on the calendar to let people know about the band and there is no official group meetup before the show at the time of posting -- but you can make one happen by RSVPing and posting in the comments to see if anyone wants to get together beforehand!

We try to choose a variety of local acts as meetup events. But we may not hit everybody's favorites. So if you know of an act you think people would like to hear, please feel free to post it on the Calendar. Anyone can post. All it takes is setting up a meeting place and time at the venue, and getting to the show early as the host for Hosted events; and as simple as posting it to the group for Non-Hosted events.

In addition to regular meetups with RSVPs, etc, we'll add 'Notes' on the calendar for other shows or discussions about local bands that may be of interest to this group.

Thanks for joining the group, and we hope to see you at a show very soon!
