Updates, Updates, Updates

Lots of good news from Eternal Otter Records recently. First off, we were recently featured in a Free Press article about Portland record labels - check it out here.

There are also a lot of great Eternal Otter Records-approved shows coming up over the next few days. Tomorrow (Wednesday), SPACE Gallery is hosting a Johnny Cash tribute night to benefit prison literacy programs. Jesse Pilgrim (nominee for Best Folk Act in the Phoenix's Best Music Poll) will be playing a number of Cash Classics with his band The Bonfire. Also expect an appearance by Waisely "Scar" Lighthead, Panda Bandit. More info here.

Also on Wednesday, Johnny Fountain & Dominic Lavoie launch their West Coast Tour. Check the sidebar to see their upcoming dates. I'm sure they'll be looking for a place to sleep and a warm meal from time to time, too - so help these traveling musicians out! And take the chance to see these great Portland acts outside their natural habitat.

On Thursday, back in Portland, our good friends in Dead Man's Clothes (nominee for Best New Act in the BMP) will be participating in the Live and Local taping; They will perform at EMPIRE and the show will be taped for public broadcast. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (nominee for Best Local Act) will play the Saturday May 1st show, also at EMPIRE. More info here.

On Sunday, we'll be taking a week off from the Red Telephone to participate in our first vinyl vendor sale. Novares Res, Portland's Best Bar, is hosting a "Vinyl Education" featuring various vinyl vendors (including Eternal Otter Records). The event is also a fundraiser for schools in Tanzania. So, come out and support a good cause, drink some beer, and pick up some cool records! More info here.

Don't forget to keep voting in the Phoenix's Best Music Poll. Vote now.
