With the powers of love and unity we can move mountains. Only until recently has the atrocities at Standing Rock come into the scope of the masses. Our government has an ugly history of conquest and murder, and a very unhealthy relationship with Big Oil. The time has for us to join together to fight the good fight. Sometimes that means banding with our community and making beautiful music! Sometimes it means giving support in the form of money. The direct point of contact for these funds is Candi Brings Plenty. Candi Brings Plenty, is a Two Spirit identified queer Indigenous woman, who is a strong community advocate and activist for both the Native American and queer communities of Portland. She is an organizer and Two Spirit International leader. She has a grandpa, uncles, a niece and loved ones who have been camping since for the past two months. Her family has been involved in protecting their sacred water for years. As of one week ago today, she has decide to take on this leadership role, journey to Standing Rock and be our local point of contact and join her traditional warrior societies. This concert series will provide her with the funds, donations and supplies she can hand deliver directly, from our community to hers. It will feature speakers, musicians, and artists. Admission is $7-$77 sliding scale. All proceeds go to the cause. We will also be hosting a silent auction, where you will have a chance to bid on music, art, and jewelry donated by artists and musicians from all over!

Juno What 9pm // 21+ The Goodfoot Juno What?! is a shameless dance party based in the music mecca of Denver, CO. This powerhouse quartet delivers a deeply satisfying mix of live electro-funk and high-energy disco booty jams. The band formed in 2008 as an outlet for Joey Porter’s (The Motet) organic-meets-electronic dance compositions and since has released three independent albums (Late Night, Shameless, and Late Night Live). Touring regularly since 2009, Juno What?! has shared the stage with funk luminaries such as Ohio Players and Bernie Worrell, and most of the top of the crop of contemporary groove masters. Juno What?! audiences are treated to a band that appreciates both the classic pedigree of vintage vinyl dance cuts as well as futuristic sternum-bumping anthems. The band consists of Joey Porter (keyboards, talkbox), fellow Motet-eer Garrett Sayers (bass, synth bass), Denver guitarist at large Dan Schwindt and first call drummer Tyrone Hendrix. This core group is often augmented by special guests taken from the best of the gigging groups on the scene (including founding member Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic). These musicians have gathered their collective talents to focus on this mission of making the world a better place… to dance!

Buddy Jay’s Jamaican Jazz Band 9pm // 21+ The Goodfoot The Buddy Jay Jamaican Jazz Band was formed in 2012 by Saxophonist Buddy Jay Kieffer and Trumpeter John England Fisher. Destiny and a love and deep studious respect for all music Jamaican brought them together. After amassing an all star line up of Portland based musicians including Dr. Joe Cruz, and Joe Marquand amoungst others, they set out to do the ska. Writing original Jamaican jazz and rocksteady instrumentals designed for dancing has been the delight of both band members and audiences across the northwest. Buddy Jay and the band’s unique take on the genre of Jamaican jazz have allowed them to feel equally comfortable sharing the stage with bands performing a meried of styles including, Cumbia, Afro beat, Soul, and R and B to name a few. The current lineup features members of All The Apparatus, Love Bomb A GO GO, 78 Griots, The Isrealites, The Dr. Joe Trio, Raffa De Alaska and the DCB, and more. The Band recently finished recording their first demo record live in the studio of the map room, and is currently writing music for a full length record to be released on vinyl later this year. These heavy hitters always bring the party and never play a room without a dance floor (the horn players often join in the dancing themselves, circling the crowd and rocking the audience in a second line spiritual fashion). Stay tuned folks because Buddy Jay is here to stay!
