DILLY DILLY may not be done with music, but she is apparently done with Portland. Soon she'll be swapping coasts, heading for California and whatever it is she finds there. She could use a couple of bucks for the move, though, so hit www.dillydillymusic.com, download her excellent Of Art and Intention, and throw her a donation in exchange.

• Here's a band that plan ahead: heavy rockers LOKI will release their new EP, recorded with JONATHAN WYMAN, April 20. The disc will feature six new songs, along with a making-of documentary and an eight-page booklet with new artwork by tattoo artist DARK ALICE. Hit www.lokifever.com for more details.

• Long-time sideman ZACH JONES, he of the buttery guitar in AS FAST AS, the PETE KILPATRICK SUPERGROUP, and others, will take to the spotlight March 16 for the release of Fading Flowers, his debut solo disc. He wrote and recorded it in San Francisco after moving there in early 2009, with help from AS FAST AS mate ANDREW HODGKINS on drums and everyone's bassist, STU MAHAN. Expect plenty of classic rock and R&B sounds. No word yet on a release show.
