The Sultry Sounds Of Spring

Before the free reign of sunshine and just prior to the rise in the mercury, the Pacific Northwest will provide some of the best indoor Spring concerts you can find. Until the giant summer sounds of U2, Coldplay, Tom Petty, & Dave Matthews flood the great outdoor venues, some wonderfully thoughtful and stormy sounds can be heard coming from performances at The Doug Fir Lounge, The Aladdin Theatre, The Crystal Ballroom, and The Wonder Ballroom in Portland, Oregon; and will typically cost only a fraction of admission to those mega summer attractions. With smaller venues and amazing line-ups, pre-sale ticket offers become more important than ever; regardless of the absence of reserved seating. So sign up for email updates from,, and That way you can be one of the first to catch a ticket to some great shows like...
