Radiation City - Coda http://smarturl.it/CODA-EP Radiation City formed in 2010 and ended in November of 2016, but there was an EP in the works so we decided to finish the mixes and release it. The EP is a swan song and also a love letter to the fans who supported us loyally for years. The details of the dissolution of the band are difficult to discuss in too much detail; it was a deeply personal thing to experience and we’ve laid bare too much of the personal stuff over the years. That’s why we never really discussed it when it initially happened. It remains equally hard to talk about now, and we assure you it is not a dismissal of what you all have done for us over the years, because none of us will ever forget the love you’ve shown us. We poured everything we had into this for 6 years and we had to make the hard choice to close that chapter and move on. Coda tells that story indirectly, if you choose to listen. It says, in short: “We’re sorry. We love you. We’re gonna miss you.” –Radiation City Check out everyone's new projects here: Lizzy - cardioidmusic.bandcamp.com Patti - pattiking.bandcamp.com Cameron - nightheronmusic.bandcamp.com Randy - becausepdx.bandcamp.com

Last, but definitely not least... Cam Spies. Without this human, this band would have fallen off a long time ago, and I would not know what I know without him. He has fought harder than any person I know for what he loves. It has been an incredible, unforgettable journey, mon ami. Tonight is bittersweet. ❤
This is Patti. Oh boy. Lady love of our lives. Patti King. This humble beauty is going off to be in The Shins. Her wings have grown tremendously and we are so proud of her. She is like a sister, mother, favorite pet, angel, etc. Talent does not begin to describe her abilites. https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/
This is Lisa. She is the feminine power within Sama Dams The first time we saw them was at the re-opening of Alhambra Theater, 4 years ago. Heart melt to the max. Hearing Lisa and Sam harmonize together is an experience in and of itself. We have stayed friends, and tonight we have the honor of sharing the stage with them. https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/
This is Riley. Hot damn. We love this guy to the max. He is hands down the most talented dude we know, and on occasion is known to be everyone's favorite guy in town. He's drumming with us tonight for our last show as a band. #casual Revolution Hall https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/
This is Chris. He drums for Sama Dams and conjures some of the most unusual/exotic rhythms in our fair town. As a trio, they produce such a visceral listening experience that everyone should experience. Tomorrow night y'all. https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/
This is Lizzy. She pumps blood through the heart of this band. Her voice is at once obsidian and velvet, cutting deep into you then laying you down in a soft place to die. This will be Radiation City's last show. Please don't miss it. https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/

This is Sarah from Pure Bathing Culture. We met almost 5 years ago at The Doug Fir Lounge, with a bill that also included Wild Ones and Pegasus Dream. The bill came together at the last minute and happened to be PBC's first show ever. Hearing her sing was love at first note. They've since become one of our favorite Portland bands, and we are honored to share the stage with them again on Friday. https://www.facebook.com/events/642377902606911/
