“Echoes of the Past” with FRED & TOODY COLE . . . on the birth of garage punk and DIY in the Rose City
From the press release:
It’s quite possible that no other group or musician fully encapsulates the ethos of NW independent music more than Fred and Toody Cole. From Fred’s early years with the Weeds and Lollipop Shoppe (when he opened for The Doors, Janis Joplin and Jefferson Airplane, among others), to his fateful meeting with Toody, and their formation of the Rats, Dead Moon and Pierced Arrows – the Coles have rarely slowed down in their 45 years of rock n’ roll, touring and living life on their own terms.
Tickets are $12 (with special deals for existing and new Dill Pickle Club members – check the website for details).
Oh, and what the hell is The Dill Pickle Club?! It’s a creative cultural center dedicated to providing an experimental forum for critiquing contemporary culture, politics and humanities in Portland, OR.
