You only turn 80 once. That’s why hometown soul legend Ural Thomas is inviting all of Portland to see him into his eighth decade in style. Thomas, who began his career working alongside icons like Otis Redding and Mary Wells, has spent the past seven years churning out sweet, soulful tracks as the front man for Ural Thomas and the Pain. For his birthday party, Thomas will join the Pain for a hip-shakin’ set alongside performances by local hip hop artist Covi. (who also happens to be Thomas’ nephew), R&B crooner Nick Waterhouse, comedian Adam Pasi, and pillars in Portland’s soul community, Paul Knauls, Sr. and Calvin Walker.
