Ok so there was a time when some of these bands were playing arena's, that time was the 90's. Although I'm sure some of them wish that was still the deal, I'm ok with it! Selfishly speaking, seeing bands like Soul Asylum, Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket in Portland clubs last year was a blast. 2014 is looking to be another great year for throwback shows. Here's what's on the calendar so far:

3/6 Tonic and Vertical Horizon at The Asylum. With special guests Dishwalla.

3/23 Ed Kowalczyk (former frontman of Live) - I Alone Acoustic tour at Port City Music Hall.
