MUSE is our CYY 25 "Artist of the Day." One of the bazillion reasons we love Muse is because they are an amazing live band. We worked so hard to get them to Portland and in 2007 we got them with My Chemical Romance. This was going to be an epic sold-out show and then BOOM. The band got FOOD POISONING from a gig at William and Mary College in Virginia. Band members reportedly became "violently ill" after the gig. Ugh. Shows in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and our Maine show were canceled. We're glad the boys ended up being ok, but we're still mad at the universe that the show never happened.

So, to make up for the fact we never got this amazing alt-rock trio to Portland, we'll give you this performance from London in 2007...just a few months after they were supposed to play here.

 

 

Listen for MUSE double shots at the bottom and top of every hour today. MUSE IS CYY.

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly unveil some pretty cool merch to celebrate our 25th anniversary of being Portland's Alternative Rock Station. Since that moment in 1995 when we played "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana as our very first song, we've always been here at One City Center playing Alt Rock and nothing BUT Alt Rock. We've never changed formats, and because of that, we're proud to be one of the longest-running Alternative stations in the country. There's not many of us left! (unfortunately)

That's all just a big lead up to....we have new kick-ass I AM CYY 25 T-shirts, hoodies and stickas for you.

WCYY

We got Men's and Women's styles for T's and Hoodies. Pretty damn reasonable too. The T's start at $20 and the hoodies at $40.

 

 

No matter how long you've been CYY, here's a great way to show the world that you have excellent taste in both radio stations and fashion. Break it in over the Fall and Winter so it can be your go-to concert wear next summer when we can start going to CYY shows together again! Thank YOU for being CYY
