KZME Presents Stumptown Music Fest

Just when I was starting to think Portland music was winding down after an eventful summer, our friends at KZME put together an amazing Portland-infused lineup for the inaugural Stumptown Music Fest. This Saturday, Alhambra Theatre (formerly Mt. Tabor) will showcase 8 bands that have all had incredible past years and have made a sincere impact on the Portland scene. The mainly folky lineup starts 5PM and is slated to go on until 12:30, giving you a full night of amazing sets. Beginning acts will include the avant garde sounds of Billy Goat and Like a Villain. Sets by Portland’s vintage-pop heroes, the Lower 48 will be featured as well as PDX pop queen Sara Jackson Holman. The neo-folk sounds this city is known for will be diligently represented by the likes of Alameda and Bike Thief and the night will end back with the soulful rhythms laid down by Minden and the dance rock duo, Dresses. All of these bands had amazing accomplishments in 2013 and will mostly likely follow the trend in this next year. So come on out to support a night of Portland rock. - Colin Hudson

Dresses Sign to SideOneDummy

Dresses have spent the summer building momentum, spreading their indie-pop gems across the west coast and charming audiences with their bright compositions and heartwarming harmonies. Looks like all their work has paid off, as Dresses have just signed to SideOneDummy Records. The label will be releasing their new Sun Shy EP on CD and vinyl October 22nd and on Itunes September 3rd. This couldn’t have come to a more joyous, endearing and deserving duo; this will surely expand their audience exponentially and bring greater recognition to their upbeat anthems. Congratulations on the signing, Dresses, we can’t wait to see where your musical journey leads you next. - Benjamin Toledo

Dresses Debut New Music Video; Play Doug Fir 5.9

On May 9th Doug Fir will be indy-folk-popping with Portland based band, Dresses. Dresses have a sound that is 2 parts adorable and 2 parts cool. Mix it well with some electronic garnish and add a cool new music video and the result is the perfect sound for a summer day. Surly Portlanders will be bumping these sounds all summer while Dresses are doing shows with the likes of Kate Nash. The dreamy sounds of Field Mouse and the crystal clear Laura Stevenson will be sharing the bill that night. Keep an extra close eye on Laura Stevenson as she hopefully performs some of the heartbreakingly perfect songs from her new album, Wheel. Show starts at 9pm and tickets are $10 in advance or $12 in person. - Joy Pearson
