Hello! Here is my weekly list of some events happening around Portland over the next few weeks that I think sound like a good time. Have fun, everyone! Also, word on the street is that our beloved Heart Roasters is opening a 2nd cafe location in Alder & Co.’s old space on SW 12th–SO GOOD! West End PDX just keeps getting more and more awesome. ♥

Here’s a new music mix that I made, A Roll in the Meadow. It was inspired by the beautiful spring weather and it’s meant to be listened to while getting it on in a field of flowers. Or maybe it can be a transportive audio escape to conjure some daydreaming of pastoral lip locks. Or maybe you’ll just enjoy some good tunes! There are 20 songs including: My Bloody Valentine, Blur, New Order, Blouse, Gliss, Deathray & lots more! Find more of my mixes HERE.
Mixtape cover art by me. Don’t judge! I’m still learning Photoshop! Ha.
