Join us for our new First Monday Monthly with Ural Thomas and the Pain! Ural Thomas is, and forever will be Portland’s pillar of soul. He started singing beneath his mothers knee in church at the age of 3. By high school he led the doo-wop group the Mono Rays, breaking hearts and taking names at Jefferson High and Irvington Park along the way. Ural’s voice and songwriting soon gained national attention and he found himself sharing the stage with the likes of James Brown, Otis Redding, Johnny Guitar Watson and “Little” Stevie Wonder. He played the Apollo 44 times. He backed the Northwest’s biggest soul and garage outfits of the1960s (The Kingsmen, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Cavaliers Unlimited) and he never for a moment stopped teaching, singing and loving soul music. Now Ural is poised to represent Portland on equal ground with contemporaries like Lee Fields, Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, all of whom ultimately gained their dues in their golden years. To ensure the legacy he’s backed by a 9 piece band comprised of the some of the most recognizable session and solo players in town. Band leader/drummer Scott Magee (aka Cooky Parker) has arranged a setlist compiled from the gilded age of soul and R&B and Ural originals, all with a sharp focus on moving the dance floor. The foot stomping days of Jump Town, USA have returned and Ural Thomas & the Pain are here to lead the way. $5

CORAL CREEK, GROOVE CABIN; Doors @ 8, Music @ 9:00pm

Coral Creek is a Colorado band featuring a diverse catalog of original music spanning the genres of rock, country/bluegrass, cajun, folk and island music. While the new self-titled album sits squarely in the Americana category, CC’s live performances transport audiences from the beaches of the Caribbean, down to the bayou and back up high into the Colorado Rockies – with instrumentation ranging from mandolin and fiddle to congas and steel pan.
The counter-balance to McKay’s fiery piano is the acoustic guitar of singer/songwriter Chris Thompson, stylistically blazing new trails inspired by Jerry Garcia and Tony Rice. Rob Garland (bass) and Scott Llewellen (drums) lock down the rhythm section, while Nathan Peoples elevates the music with a soaring bluegrass “saxo-fiddle” and high lonesome vocals. Since forming in 2010, CORAL CREEK has performed on festival main stages, concert series and clubs across the US, Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean, sharing stages with distinguished musicians including Sam Bush, Peter Rowan, Bill Nershi and members of The String Cheese Incident, Leftover Salmon, Railroad Earth, Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Infamous Stringdusters and other fine acts. With the addition Bill McKay on keyboard and Nathan People on saxophone, CORAL CREEK is a rising tide in the swirling jamgras sea.

ADDverse EFFECTS, ALL-STAR OPERA, RADIO PHOENIX; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Channeling all the nostalgia of the Golden Age of Hip-Hop with genre-bending live instrumentation and blending it with all the energy of a punk show, ADDverse Effects aims to bring artistry and integrity back to the craft. Formed in Norman, OK the 5-piece (6 when DJ Timmy B joins the mix) was initially conceived by drummer/singer/composer Boyd ‘B-Side’ Littel and lead MC Joshua ‘Fiji’ Rehanek, in late summer 2012, after the 2 landed a short-notice opening gig with a couple other local musicians. With only 3 days to practice the band threw together a 45 minute set that went over like gangbusters. Littel and Rehanek instantly knew they had something special and decided to see the project through. In June 2014 the band relocated to Portland, OR in a move to bring their unique style to a larger market. Since moving, ADDverse has added local Portlandians Vincent Jaime on Guitar and Spencer Finnan on Keys and co-founded the Hive Mind Collective with Portland Hip-Hop/Jazz acts Korgy & Bass, Two Planets, Tribe Mars, The Pariahs.

All Star Opera is a collective of artists balancing a diversity of talents and influences. Two emcees and a four-piece band play back and forth navigating an alternate reality inhabited by unfamiliar feels, dynamic composition and warm flowing soundscapes.
The diverse interests of the Portland-based funk / hip hop / R&B trio range from backdoor Internet programming (keyboardist Benjamin Spriggs) to theories of perception (bassist Zac Alden) to the history of R&B, Soul, and hip hop (drummer Lee Hauser). The band picked the name “Radio Phoenix” as the term refers to a galaxy that has formed from the collision of two previous galaxies – and space is awesome. $7

OBJECT HEAVY, KLOZD SIRKUT; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

California’s Object Heavy draws from the sound of soul music! Inspired by the parameters of rock, funk, blues, R&B and hip hop, the band features two singers, whose lyrics remind us of a world in need, a world to love, and a place to be free. Their self-titled debut album features Bill Summers, percussionist of Herbie Hancock’s acclaimed “HeadHunters”. DJ Logic shows up on two tracks, and you’ll get to hear the Legendary Fred Wesley (James Brown Band, Parliament) with his signature trombone. Sleep and Zone (Macklemore) of “The Chicharones” and Raashan Ahmad of the “Crown City Rockers” are featured, as well. As a touring outfit they have backed these artists and many other legendary performers and their past goodfoot shows have been serious get downs!

The members of Klozd Sirkut utilize unique hybrid electro-instrumental setups, effects and pre-recorded loops. The live performance is layered with a hard grooving, beat-driven framework creating Klozd Sirkut’s undeniably signature sound and dynamic live electro performances. Trumpet player, Chris Littlefield performs regularly with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and has shared the stage with Angelo Moore (Fishbone), Phil Lesh, and a plethora of other exceptional voices— including James Brown.

Nick Werth (Yak Attack / Ghost-Note) serves up Hip Hop-inspired beats with his solo project, Galaxe.
What makes this incredibly unique is that he does it all live using a Xylosynth. Based in the Pacific Northwest, the Galaxe sound is deeply inspired by nature and psychedelic experience, with nods to J Dilla and Flying Lotus.
Drawing from heavy influences in post-rock, shoegaze and math rock, Signal Bath puts forth an electronic sound derived primarily from the use of heavily effected guitar riffs, loops and improvisation. Each sound is built from random anomalies found in improvisation and loops. $8

HUMAN OTTOMAN, STIG; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Human Ottoman is Susan Lucía (drums), Julian Kosanovic (cello), and Grayson Fiske (vibraphone). After meeting in Oregon as music school misfits, they joined forces, quickly creating a repertoire of raucous, rhythmically dynamic music which combined their enthusiasm for music of all cultures with classical backgrounds and modern genre-mashing-jazz sensibilities, characterized most of all by their unique instrumentation.
Their first album, aptly named “Power Baby”, was independently released in 2014 and received an Independent Music Award in the “Instrumental” category. Their second full-length record, Farang, was released in 2015. Since then, they have been actively ear-pillaging throughout the west coast. From brain-crashing cello solos and atomic vibraphone drops to drum solos that scholars are still struggling to understand, Human Ottoman is bringing polyrhythmic rock to the masses.
Stig is an all-instrumental, progressive jazz/funk band from Boston, MA. Consisting of 5 close friends, Stig aims to bring people together with their music. The tight communication and positive energy shared between everyone in the group brews a raw and exciting experience at every show. Stig came together during their time at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. They spent most of their first year together playing sweaty, overflowing basement shows in Allston, the student filled neighborhood in Boston. Their music is all original and is
always written as a group to draw from everyone’s genre-crossing
influences. $5

SNEAKY PETE and THE SECRET WEAPONS; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Sneaky Pete and the Secret Weapons is a collective of musicians channeling original music through a lens of hazy funk and unending groove, all witnessed and interpreted from the peaks and valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Their genre-blending sound of funk, rock, jazz, and hip-hop moves from the streets of New Orleans to smoky jazz dives, intergalactic spaceships, and late-night laser-filled clubs. Initially drawn to Jackson Hole with a shared passion for skiing and mountains, the group formed in late 2011 when friends Jack Tolan (guitar/vox) and Sam Lowenthal (bass) got together with the vision of “making funk noises,” and featured a rotating cast of ‘Secret Weapons’ playing small gigs in Jackson, WY. With the addition of Bobby Griffith on trumpet, the band had their breakthrough performance on December 21st, 2012, a legendary party known as “the FUNKapocalypse.” By the next fall, with the addition of keyboardist Galen Karnatz, it was time to hit the road and take their sound beyond the towering walls of the Tetons. They quickly built a reputation for high-energy performances and sweaty dance floors across the western US. $7

AMENDOLA vs. BLADES vs. SKERIK; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Wil Blades and Scott Amendola conjure various sonic deities though only a duo. For the past 10 years, their live shows have been generating a buzz around the San Francisco Bay Area. The two got their start as a group when Scott had the vision of performing Duke Ellington’s “Far East Suite” in duo with Wil. While quite a daunting task translating a suite (originally written for a big band) into duo, the Hammond Organ had previously been used in the 1940’s and 1950’s to emulate the sound of big bands. With Wil’s knowledge of this tradition and Scott’s desire to push boundaries, they were able to pull it off in an explorative, yet cohesive manner. The duo continues to perform pieces from the Ellington suite, while also developing their original material. Their live performances are fun and playful, yet deeply musical. They can cover everything from Avant Garde to Funk, Bebop to Rock, sometimes within one song. Joining them this evening is world-renowned sax master, Skerik, whose resume goes on for days. This will be like a master class in musicianship that should not be missed! $10

SHAFTY; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Shafty is the country’s finest Phish tribute band! What began as essentially a goof – a chance to throw down some familiar dancey beats and jam for whoever felt like listening – ultimately lit a spark under the off-the-radar powder keg of Phish fans in the Portland music scene. Brett McConnell (bass) and Rob Sipsky (guitar) spent more time talking about the possibility of putting a Phish tribute together than actually practicing, prior to that first performance at the goodfoot, in February of 2012. Expectations for attendance were moderate at best, yet before the band played the first note, there was a line out the door, culminating in a jam-filled celebration of the music of Phish to an over-capacity crowd! The demand for a repeat was high, and Shafty was born. If there’s a motive, it’s to recreate the energy of a Phish show, with the attitude of playful band-audience interaction at the forefront, sharp musical skill acting as a behind-the-scenes glue to hold it all together.
Over the first year alone, the band played 83 unique songs, ranging from spoken word moments such as Lengthwise, to epic compositions including You Enjoy Myself, Reba, David Bowie, and The Curtain (With), already to multiple sold-out and near sold out audiences. Classic Phish gimmicks are in full force: trampolines, megaphones, choreographed dances, vacuum cleaner solos, instrument switching, and the secret language are alive and well at a Shafty show. $10
