THE RUMBLE: PORTLAND returns to Holocene TONIGHT with an incredible line up of Portland bands + a traveling act that make this FREE party something you can't miss.

First up is 1776, a band we got turned onto by our partners at CRAVEDOG, and then after listening we understand why this band was recently signed to the Dandy Warhols' label, Beat The World Records, because this band has the songs, and tonight we'll see their live chops.

The band playing through all The Rumbles is the SF based duo, THE FEROCIOUS FEW. Since first meeting frontman Francisco Fernandez (that's a lot of F's) at a Rumble SF party by the DJ booth, and FF talking the most smack I had ever heard, we've been fast friends ever since. They've graced the Rumble SF and Rumble LA in past years and played our first Hollywood BrewFest last fall. They are supporting the instant classic - 'Juices' - and it's memorable that they are all official and on a label after all these years selling thousands of CD's on the street corners out of their guitar case.

Portland Mercury darlings, MONARQUES round out the night, as this seven piece are set to bring their sunny, 1950’s inspired indie pop. We're pumped that they are playing the party this month indeed.
"Portland's Monarques churn out sunny bubblegum pop that would feel equally at home in a '50s sock hop as it would in a cramped basement show in 2010. What's most impressive is that Oh Captain, My Captain's Josh Spacek pulled the whole project together in just a matter of months." - Portland Mercury

We'll also be having TRUMER PILS beer specials all night long!

As always, the party is FREE, and is brought to you by Future Sounds, Pampelmoose, Music Millennium, Cravedog, XO Publicity, Trumer Pils and Spin Earth.

This is indie supporting indie, so come out and join all of us and these incredible up-and-coming bands.

Holocene is located at 1001 SE Morrison Street
