You may have heard by now that the guys in EASTWAVE RADIO were in an accident while on tour in Canada and wound up pretty seriously injured. So, of course, the local scene has stepped up to put together a show that will raise money to help the guys out. That’s turned into a two-day event now, and one thing to look for is the debut of the PRESSURE POINTS, a new reggae band that features all kinds of local-reggae luminaries: SCOTT GIROUARD (TRUMYSTIC, MYSTIC VIBES, THE I-RATES) on lead guitar, KEVIN WARD (Mystic Vibes) on guitar, REGGIE BURROUGHS (Trumystic) on bass, DUANE OCH (Trumystic, Mystic Vibes) on keyboards, and GARY GEMMITI (The i-rates, ROYAL HAMMER) on drums.

We know you’re all desperate to go bowling in Bayside at the BAYSIDE BOWL. Well, how about seeing some music while you’re at it? MARIE STELLA’s EP release show on June 12 will be the first gig. Don’t miss it.

Wait. What? June 12 is shaping up to be pretty sweet. The reinvigorated COLEPITZ will be releasing their new album, No Tomorrow Tonight, that night at the Empire. WHITCOMB will be there. The heavy rock in Portland is on the upswing right now.

HUDSON EAKIN, last seen with FASTER! FASTER!, has a new outfit he’s calling JENOVATRON, with an album expected by late summer.
