Minus 5 / Derby @ Doug Fir – 10-July-2009

Made it out last night to the Doug Fir Lounge, getting there just in time for openers Derby to start their set.  Hadn’t heard of them before, a Portland pop band, they played a really good set.  I picked up the last CD, ‘Posters Fade’ and while it’s not quite to the level of the live set, it’s good too.   Check ’em out at:  http://www.derbyrock.com/.  I’ll try to see them again on Friday at a show at MacTarnahan’s Taproom, starts at 5pm over on NW 31st.

Headliners Minus 5 have a new CD out, called ‘Killingsworth’ (after a street here in the N/NE part of town.  Scott McCaughey led a solid set, complete with steel guitar and two backup singers, along with Peter Buck in the back on bass.  Here’s a short review from the Oregonian.
