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. $8

JELLY BREAD; 45th STREET BRASS BAND; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a powerhouse quintet with a high-energy calling card that delivers a high-energy, chameleonic playlist all over the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert twang meeting the urban tones of funk and rock. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.
45th St Brass is a horn-centric project that just wants to make you dance. They started out in a four-piece “brasswind” configuration, comprised only of the four horns. The arrangements and that spirit was captured on their first EP, The Mothership and the Other Ship, recorded live in studio in early 2016. They’ve also been working hard at expanding the band and have regularly included guitar, drums, percussion, and bass and/or sousaphone and are excited to share the new product on a recording soon. 45th will be joining Jelly Bread for their set, so come down for some Thursday funk! $8

VOODOO LADYBOYS, LESSER BANGS; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

When Ween shockingly called it quits in 2012, a gaping hole was left in the hearts of all who worshipped at the holy altar of the Boognish. Their end marked a devastating blow to lovers of rock, comedy, social experimentation, and all things brown. But on Halloween night of 2013, a group of Portland musicians joined together to host a black-mass resurrection of the band’s spirit at Club 21. As the night progressed, a wafting aroma of pork roll, egg and cheese began to emit from the stage amplifiers and some in attendance swear they say a spiky-haired stallion emerge from the fog machine. The Boognish spoke to the musicians that night, and instructed them to bear the torch of his legacy – they would no longer be known as men, but rather as The Voodoo Ladyboys. As such, the VLBs not only pay homage to the spirit of Ween musically, but also through their embrace of the absurd. Sonic annihilation hasn’t felt this good since the liberty bell first cracked.
Lesser Bangs are set to reclaim the massive power of rock and roll that has begun to quietly fade in the era of samples and laptops. Inspired by the valiant battle for rock’s soul that Lester Bangs championed in his writings, Lesser Bangs embody their namesake’s passion for truth in music. Forged in 2012 by keyboardist Adam King and guitarist Sean DeGregorio, LBs finds the pair’s like-minded but unique takes on rock and pop fusing in harmonic splendor. Endearing hooks are gracefully attacked, and the potential for psychedelic expansion lies within each melodic turn. Rounded out by bassist Scott DeWitt and drummer Justin Birge, Lesser Bangs make music that’s more electrifying than a toaster in a bathtub. Let Lesser Bangs reignite the sonic quiver of your soul. $7

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

Over the last few years Sugarcane has evolved into one of the top Bluegrass Rock bands on the West Coast and is showing no signs of slowing down. A sweet mix of Country, Caribbean, Blues and Bluegrass; the band can move both ass and mind. Sugarcane is led by the soulful, powerful, and charismatic singer/songwriter Eric Schwieterman, who has toured the byways of the United States for the last 17 years. “Big E,” as Eric is lovingly nicknamed, is an Indiana-grown songwriting prodigy who gives the band a “Country Gentleman” touch. Holding down the beats are Justin Fulbright on the Drums, and Josh Casey on Bass. When you put the two of them together you get an unstoppable force that drives a dancefloor all on it’s own. On the Acoustic Guitar is the uber-talented Stefan Andrews. Reminiscent of Rick Danko but with a bluegrass flair, Stefan has a compelling voice and is also a principal songwriter for the group. On Mandolin is Derek Hofbauer, a powerful player whose personality gives the band a comedic and entertaining edge. Derek is truly one of a kind. Rounding out the band is Noah Bell on lead Guitar. Hailing from Springfield, Missouri, Noah is one of Portland’s finest guitarists and amazes audiences with his skill and technical prowess whether with the slide, acoustic, or one of his many Telecasters. To sum up, Sugarcane is a fine group of gentlemen and a damn good band. Come see and hear for yourself! $7

LEFT COAST COUNTRY, TOMMY ALEXANDER, EVAN LANAM; Doors @ 9, Music @ 9:30pm

Left Coast Country is a modern string band formed in 2010 from the exploding newgrass scene in Portland, OR
Their debut, Dark Down and Blue features the group’s high-energy, hard-driving originals and their contemporary take on the old bluegrass sound. Their second, self-produced and self-titled album propelled their versatile, dynamic sound onto the never-ending tour circuit of North America. Dedication to their craft has made Left Coast Country one of the hardest working, up-and-coming acts in the Northwest. The statement “for LCC pickin’ is not a hobby, not a job, but a way of life,” (B. Salmon – Bend Bulletin) could not be any more accurate.
Originally from Santa Barbara, CA, Alexander had never written or played music until he got a guitar as a gift for his 21st birthday. A highly ranked amateur baseball player at the time, Tommy quit the sport, dropped out of college, and threw himself into writing and performing music full time.
Alexander focuses on “basement indie” sound with influences from American folk music that reflects his personal songwriting style. “I focus on poetry and music and my inspiration, and from there I just let it all flow through me.” In the era of synthetic electro-pop, audiences from across the country have connected with Alexander’s intimate sound..
Over the past two years alone, Tommy has been fortunate to share the stage with acts such as Michael McDonald, Kevin Devine, Rising Appalachia, People Under the Stairs, Milo Greene, Johnnyswim, Night Beds, Spirit Family Reunion.
“The downright truth about Alexander is that he is an expression of rebellion in a society that is trapped within institutional conformities and down-the-road retirement plans. Filled with an introspective and strikingly truthful style of songwriting, his music can be downright mind-bending — especially for those of us who have grown used to Pandora’s corporate jukebox and the cultural clichés that run with it.” $5

NYE with SCOTT PEMBERTON TRIO (Downstairs), SOUL STEW DJ’S (Upstairs); Doors @ 9:00pm

We’ve got two levels , so why not two shows? Downstairs (doors at 9) we have The Scott Pemberton Trio. In the upstairs pub we’ll be hosting the sweet funky sounds of the Soul Stew Dj’s, starting at 9pm.
Scott Pemberton’s sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker “Timber Rock”. Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific Northwest– the deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues/roots and West coast funk. It’s all there, and often all in the same song. After more than a decade of weekly shows at the goodfoot (we stopped counting at 500) Scott hit the road in 2011 to spread his music from coast to coast. Along the way he has become a regular performer at festivals such as High Sierra Music Fest, Jamcruise and Waterfront Blues Fest, as well as sharing the stage with artists as diverse as Fred Wesley and Railroad Earth. He still joins us for the big ones, and NYE is always a grand affair at the goodfoot!
In the upstairs pub we welcome goodfoot stalwarts, The Soul Stew DJ’s. Portland’s longest running DJ Dance Night, Soul Stew delivers deep and delicious cuts of funk, soul, disco & break beats on vinyl 45′s. DJ Aquaman (aka Eric Hedford, former member of The Dandy Warhols and 2014 Oregon Music Hall Of Fame Inductee) joins forces with DJ Brad Vachal and The Soul Mechanic to help you dance yourself right into 2017.
Please Note: The shows are separate events on separate floors. it is $20 downstairs for Scott Pemberton and $20 in the upstairs pub for Soul Stew. Advanced ticketing for Scott Pemberton here. Soul Stew has no advanced tickets and will be day-of-show, at the door only.

TALKING DREADS; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

Talking Dreads began as a project born from the audacious notion that hardcore Heads-lovers wouldn’t mind a tinkering or two with their favorite Talking Heads tunes, and there is a lot of great music here that will make you stop, listen and smile a little bit more as you’re grooving along to the joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of the island vibe. Talking Dreads is the brainchild of Head Dread, Mystic Bowie, a Jamaican artist whose long and close relationship with Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth, founding members of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, began when he joined the latter group as a singer in 1996. He then recorded and performed with Tom Tom Club for nearly twenty years and continues to bear fruit from their unending collaborations.
This inaugural effort from Talking Dreads features an amazing lineup of stellar reggae stalwarts including Freddie McGregor [‘Rastaman Camp’, Bobby Babylon], ska-guitar master Ernest Ranglin (session player and arranger of Millie’s smash ‘My Boy Lollipop’, the Melodians ‘Rivers Of Babylon’, and countless other tracks], and Tarrus Reilly (’Start Anew’, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’) as well as a little help from punk-pop diva Cindy Wilson of The B-52s (‘Rock Lobster’, ‘Love Shack’). $10

THE HEAVY PETS, BROTHERS GOW; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

The Heavy Pets are an American rock band that blends rhythm & blues, jazz, funk, disco and reggae with rock & roll. Called “a living, breathing, force of nature” by Relix Magazine, the Pets are known for their soulful songcraft and powerhouse live performances. Riding high on the success of their most recent studio effort, Two Horses, look out for The Heavy Pets as they continue to hit the road hard.
The group became an instant Sirius radio sensation in 2007 with the release of their double-disc debut album, Whale, driven by hit tracks “Operation of Flight” and “Sleep.” First embraced by the jam scene for their raw talent, their crossover sound that is showcased on their self-titled album, also dubbed a “Top 10 Album of 2010” by The Huffington Post.
The San Diego quintet Brothers Gow combines rock, funk, jazz and reggae influences with thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and an ear for improvisation that keeps each show fresh and unique. With more than 500 shows under their belts, this well-seasoned band started off in Flagstaff, AZ, and since moving to Southern California, has developed a more dynamic sound, adding strong vocal harmonies and complex arrangements to their guitar-driven rock. Add to this mix an awe inspiring light show, and you have a recipe for a memorable concert experience! $10

PERT NEAR SANDSTONE; Doors @ 9, Music @ 10:00pm

It was roughly a decade ago that Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album, ‘Up And Down The River.’ So much has happened since then: highs and lows, personal struggles and artistic triumphs, new faces and new sounds. The winding road they’ve traveled over the years makes it all the more meaningful for the band to come full circle on their dazzling new release, ‘Discovery Of Honey,’ which finds them once again recording in a basement and reuniting with founding member Ryan Young, who’s spent the past seven years touring the world playing fiddle with bluegrass stars Trampled By Turtles. $10
