Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade and Live Again are proud to present Portland Is The Reason, a new event dedicated to local musicians and the music that inspires them!
For every edition of “Portland Is The Reason”, we’ll invite a band to take over Ground Kontrol’s DJ booth and spin the music they listen to – whether it’s nostalgic classics or current favorites, it’s their opportunity to share what they’re into and what influences their creativity. We’ll also be raising funds for Live Again, a local nonprofit dedicated to suicide prevention and awareness, with a portion of proceeds from sales benefitting their mission.
Our kickoff night features long-running Portland band The Thermals, who have been putting out high-energy, self-reflective punk-rock albums since 2003, developing a dedicated following reaching far beyond the Pacific Northwest. Members Hutch Harris, Kathy Foster and Westin Glass will be on hand for DJ sets drawing from the bands they admire, followed by the premiere of their brand-new album, We Disappear, out March 25th onSaddle Creek Records!
Grab a drink and play your favorite games while being among the first to hear the new album from The Thermals, all for a good cause. Portland Is The Reason we’re here, and without you, it won’t be the same!
