VARIOUS ARTISTS: Mix It Up, Vol. III: Cassette

May 17, 2013

Another volume of the regional, Portland-only comp that benefits, a well-loved and oft-used online resource guide to shows in the area. Like most regional comps, it’s crafted out of love and is a mixed bag. Genres abound here, but it becomes quickly clear there are tons of great, active bands in this town. My personal standouts are Shitty Weekend, Drunk Dad, Pageripper, Raw Nerves, and Freedom Club. Twenty-eight bands.
