Migration. Hibernation. Liberation.

Something about the rain. It seems as the sky gets darker and the ground danker, bands begin migrating to Portland. Along with the turning leaves and southbound birds, fall inevitably brings some of the best shows to the city of roses.

Maybe it’s just a swift stopover between Seattle and San Francisco, but this week alone TV On The Radio, Art Brut, Cold War Kids, Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah and the Scissor Sisters are gracing our stages.

That’s not to mention the horde of bands that don ponchos and galoshes everyday as Portland locals, such as M. Ward, Antlerand and Agalloch. These are just a smattering of the musicians around, but they cut a wide swath across the musical landscape. And thanks to them hibernating can be as liberating as migrating.

To keep the surf theme alive and kicking, listen to a tune from Christopher Willits' Surf Boundaries.

Along with migration, one should certainly partake in libation in order to have a better hibernation. Thanks for the linkies!
