Portland | City of Bands
As Jon Raymond suggests, artists, writers, filmmakers and musicians inevitably end up in the same party in Portland. In “The Indie City: Why Portland is America’s rock Mecca,” Taylor Clark tries to understand what draws all these very different talents––the Daddy Warhols, M. Ward, The Shins, Pink Martini (shown performing at the zoo), Viva Voce, Menomena, Richmond Fontaine, and more––to live in Portland. In the end his only answer is simple: “It's easy to live here.” We tapped a few of the local band members (who find it easy to live there) for our Five in Focus: “Portland Bands on Film Soundtracks.”
