Chuck Ragan, Michael Dean Damron, Kris Orlowski

This event is in the past
Wed., June 8, 9 p.m. 2016
Star Theater Old Town-Chinatown (Portland)
Chuck Ragan's music recalls listening to good ol' country jams at the county fair. Its roots lie in solid songwriting and classic textures, while stories of love and the road shine through. But Ragan's long history with his band, post-hardcore staples Hot Water Music, isn't far from the surface. Like an American version of the Pogues, his music holds a sense of urgency that's imbued with punk. This is no surprise, as Ragan is one of the artists who helped define punk and post-hardcore over the past 20 years. Whether touring solo or with his impressive list of collaborators—including Rocky Votolato, with whom he co-released the EP Kindred Spirit last year—Ragan is not afraid to channel pure emotion in his skilled live performances, guaranteeing each set will be a memorable experience.
