Award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Robin Jackson, known for his wild, theatrical contributions to bands like Vagabond Opera and the March Fourth Marching Band, draws upon the moody spirit of his rain-soaked, Portland, OR home to create an eclectic brew of dreamy, vintage folk-pop in he debut album Dust Diaries.

He celebrates at his Portland release party featuring an all star band with members of The Portland Cello Project, The Eels, March Fourth Marching Band and Vagabond Opera. Y La Bamba’s own Luz Elena Mendoza opens the night. Also featuring a interactive wish making station and more special guests. Admission includes a CD/download card of the new album.

    It’s been years since I saw some live music. Seeing this act in a place I had no idea hosted music would make for a great night out!

    I have been here in Portland for just over two weeks – my first day I stumbled upon Luz at Zeus Cafe and I went back four straight nights-
    Now all I want to do is find the best music that Portland has to offer- this sounds like a real showcase of just that!

    Can’t wait .

    Because I djed at the first show that Y La Bamba ever performed live at, and I’d like to see how far she’s come.

    I’d like to win because I’ve never seen a show at Secret Society (and I love that bar) and I’ve loved Y La Bamba ever since I saw them with The Robinsons at The Woods and because I’m a winner (?). ;)
