Passion, a little bit of whiskey, and blind faith. Formed in late 2012 by vocalist Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, Blacktop Mojo's fiery blend of heavy post-grunge grooves, classic rock guitar riffs, and Southern Metal shredding falls somewhere between Soundgarden and Lynyrd Skynyrd. After their debut album "I Am" in 2014 and a few years cutting their teeth in dive bars, dancehalls, and honky tonks, the band decided to go all in. In 2017 they teamed up with famed Muscle Shoals Sound producer Jimmy Johnson (The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Seger) and his long time engineer Steve Melton for their sophomore outing entitled, "Burn The Ships" at Sound Emporium in Nashville. During the recording of the record, the guys took the leap and quit their day jobs, moving into a small house together in Palestine, Texas where they all still live today. The house created an unbreakable fellowship between the band and a culture of constant creativity. Released via their label Cuhmon Records, "Burn The ships" yielded two top 40 Billboard singles on the Mainstream Active Rock charts including "Where The Wind Blows" (#27) and a cover of the Aerosmith classic, "Dream On" (#31). The album cycle saw a heavy bout of touring where the band shared the stage with a wide range of heavy hitters including Bon Jovi and Sammy Hagar as well as festival appearances at major rock festivals around the US. After the touring concluded, the guys returned home in October of 2018 where they locked themselves in the band house for six months to write their third record "Under The Sun". Recorded in 2019 at Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX with long time friend and producer Philip Mosley, "Under The Sun" is a semi autobiographical account of going through young adulthood and the pitfalls that come with modern romance. The music draws on a multitude of genres and styles to form a hodgepodge of throwback sludgy rock and metal mixed with sensual and at times even, carnal blues. The lead-off single, "Can't Sleep", due out June 21st of this year, is a tale that most are unfortunately all too familiar with. The song centers around a couple's tumultuous relationship, in which one person notices the other is acting strangely, not coming home, and obviously harboring a dark secret which will tear them apart. "I think everyone has dealt with harboring a secret in a relationship at one point or another. Whether that be cheating, being cheated on, or just simply dealing with the heaviness of knowing there's something wrong with your person and they won't tell you. A lot of times we just seem to have this innate ability to pick up on those things before they're even said, and that's what "Can't Sleep" is about." - Matt James

The Bleeding Hearts are a group of experienced Portland musicians, who come together each year, for one night only, to play their annual Valentine's Day show, The Bleeding Hearts Ball.

The Bleeding Hearts Ball, founded in 2013, is a celebration of all aspects of love, from the very best to the very worst, with no emotions left untouched. Each year the Bleeding Hearts tackle an entirely new collection of well-curated cover tunes originally performed by your favorite musicians in the soul/R&B/pop music genres.

This is a charity event in honor of our departed friend and bassist, Ben Rougeou. Proceeds go to Pass The Mic, a free week-long music camp that connects experienced local musicians to immigrant and refugee youth, mentoring them into learning instruments and writing original songs.

Johnny Franco

Walk down any street in Portland, Oregon and you are sure to encounter a mustachioed Brazilian spaghetti western rock and roll troubadour named Johnny Franco. Recently moving from Sao Paulo, Johnny has developed a cult following in Portland for his high energy street performances and stylish music. Signed by music producer Sterling Fox (Lana Del Rey, Elle King) on his label Blanket Fort, Johnny has put together a debut EP that feels instantly timeless. The debut single "Treated Like Grass" combines Dylanesque vocal stylings with a unique jangly Brazilian influenced beat. The EP Experience Report #1 is due out in early 2020.

Not only is Rx Fest a means to raise money for those organizations but also another opportunity to provide a platform for community outreach and engagement where representatives from each nonprofit can speak directly to the public about their respective missions and services.

Through this one of the foundational cornerstones of the festival is apparent, to engage and assist the dialogue of health, both mental and physical, and wellness in our community by not only connecting individuals to the services available through the festival's selected nonprofit partners but also through one of the most healing environmental sources, live music and community.

We strive to make the fest as inclusive as possible and work with a number of individuals directly involved in our local music community to co-curate. This year we are beyond excited to work with Papi Fimbres / HomieFest, Slim Moon / Kill Rock Stars, NW Post Rock Collective, DeAngelo Raines / GHTOBLST and more.

We hope you'll join us as we continue to build slowly and get our feet wet (figuratively and likely literally) to kick off what we hope to be an event we'll all continue to look forward to with enthusiasm and excitement for the many February's to follow.

Be our Valentine! XORX

Portland, OR - Bruce "Bruno" Berger, a pivotal figure in the early years of independent alternative rock music in Portland OR, passed away on January 3rd, 2020. A memorial concert and benefit has been planned in his memory.

Bruno was best known as a bouncer, bartender and booker of the "new band" nights at the legendary Satyricon nightclub from the mid-eighties well into the nineties. He also promoted a series of "Rock 'n Shop" events at larger venues (Pine St Theater). These combined eclectic line-ups of local indie rock with local artisans selling their goods. Many Portland musicians credit Bruno with giving them their first show. He was a gregarious and larger-than-life personality. Sometimes polarizing or gruff, he could also be quite charming and was certainly well-known throughout the city. He was one of the infamous "Satyricon Seven", those who were arrested and charged in the legendary "Satyricon Riot" of April 1990.

To commemorate Bruno, share stories, and enjoy musical memories, and otherwise bring together the remaining community that created the existing Portland music scene, a memorial Rock 'n Shop has been planned at Dante's on Friday Feb 21, 2020.

Here is the line-up for this not-to-be-missed event:

Toody Cole w/ The Spurs doing Dead Moon songs

Chris Newman and friends doing Snowbud songs

The Mistons (w/ Sean Croghan of Pynnacles/Crackerbash)

Monica Nelson and The Jack London Trio doing Obituaries songs

Steve Wilkinson and Paul Brainard

Pander Brothers

Plus stories, memories and reminiscences by friends


Doors will open at 8pm, with entertainment starting at 8:30. Cover charge is by donation, starting at an 80's throwback rate of $5, but those who can are encouraged to contribute more to help the family with expenses.

The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world since 2008 with no plans of stopping. Started by four teenagers in Las Vegas, they're driven by a hybrid of 50's rock and roll fused with blues and the most exciting elements of rockabilly. The band's haunting but powerful voice Chris Moinichen constantly keeps the songs fresh. Andrew Himmler on guitar often drives the songs with guitar singes while Greg Garcia on Stand-up Bass and Kirk Highberger on Drums sway the dynamic of the band up and down. The Delta Bombers continue to take on month long tours of new and distant places such as Russia and the Czech Republic supported by four studio albums including their newest self-titled album "The Delta Bombers" (2014). The Bombers have played some of the most renowned Rockabilly and Psychobilly festivals including Viva Las Vegas, Psychobilly Meeting (Spain), Rockalavera (Mexico), Sjock (Belgium) and High Rockabilly (Spain). What started as a teenage dream has now come to fruition as a worldwide rock and roll expedition, one that should be witnessed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of music!
