May Day Music Fest Day 3 - Black Prairie

Despite their individual musical pedigrees, the seasoned musicians that make up progressive string band Black Prairie aren't moonlighting. The ensemble is pulled together from different corners of Portland, Oregon's remarkably rich music scene, and while the high profile of each musician in the band—which includes three-fifths of the Decemberists—ensures a certain amount of attention, it's clear that Black Prairie are in it for purely musical reasons. They're playing a brand of Americana that defies easy categorization, cross-pollinating a number of different styles while exposing the venerable, forgotten roots of folk and bluegrass.

The Lower 48

Sarah! Ben! Nick!
Born and partly raised in your backyard, comes the highly mysterious pop outfit named The Lower 48! Hailing from 3 major cities this 3-piece brings new life to the best decade since music. A turn of events and a twist of fate dropped these kids on Portland's doorstep in the summer of 2011. Vintage rhythm, bass, and catchy vocals being the only home the vagabonds knew, it was a smooth transition to the West for these operators. Between making audiences twist and shout, wearing ties, and a boatload of recording, the band looks ahead to an exciting 2013.
