Local Portland Music Scene
Portland is part of the Pacific Northwest Region that has produced many successful artists. The metro population of Portland is over 2.2 million, according to the 2010 Census. Large campuses include Portland University, The University of Portland and Reed College. The local scene is covered by Oregonlive.com and Oregon Music News.
The history of the Portland music scene has included The Kingsmen, Everclear, Decemberists, Quarterflash, Nu Shooz, Dan Reed Network and Dandy Warhols. KNRK has been the flagship radio station for local music and is where Everclear began their climb to national fame. Some of the venues where Portland artists developed include Aladdin Theater and Satyricon. Certain times in history the Portland and Seattle scenes have worked together to create a national buzz about the Pacific Northwest region, as in the 60s with The Kingsmen and Paul Revere & The Raiders, who both recorded in Portland.
