The first Tuesday of March was not only Fat Tuesday, but also happened to be the latest installment of Red Bull Sound Select: Portland. This show featured local favorites And And And and The We Shared Milk. The headliners were Chicago indie pop musicians, Maps & Atlases.
The We Shared Milk played first and absolutely rocked the Doug Fir Lounge. With their fuzz jam-rock style of music, TWSM everyone started feeling warm and cozy.
Next up was And And And. These punks have got an ill-defined indie rock sound to their music. They are the perfect band to get drunk, head bang, and have a grand ol’ time to. This was one of And And And’s best shows that I’ve been to.
Last up was headliners Maps & Atlases. These guys I have not heard as much, but their sound was pretty good live. Pretty pop-y, with a little indie dance. Honestly it sounds like most of the “alternative” music that gets played on the radio too much. They had a good show though.
