Episode 2: The Future of Our Independent Music Venues
In this episode, we speak with the leaders of Portland’s music industry about the future of our independent music venues. Independent venues are the fabric of Portland’s music culture, providing a powerful platform for emerging and independent artists, and connecting live acts to thousands of fans, at an affordable rate. With venues at risk for permanent closure due to the COVID-19 shut down, our guests talk about what’s needed – and what’s being done, including emergency state funding – to save them. Featuring guests Jim Brunberg, Meara McLaughlin, Lori Hughs Killen, and Malachi Graham.
