For a small city, Portland has produced a large number of music greats. The Decemberists, Gossip, The Dandy Warhols, Elliott Smith and Floater all cut their teeth in this city of thorny roses. Even the infamous Courtney Love called Portland home at one time. That said, Portland knows music and for six glorious days in early September, Portland was THE place in the world to see live acts in small venues.
