Dante's - Portland - With Sweet Water and Stereo Embers

So…if you had ears and were alive in the 90s, you likely heard one of Sweet Water’s hits on the radio. They were one of my favorite bands of that era for sure and they’re still all over my playlists today. We’re crazy stoked to get to share the stage with both them AND Stereo Embers from Seattle, this summer at Dante’s.

Purusa will open the show so get there early!

Soberlandia - Sans Bar 2019 Tour Portland - Q Center

Soberlandia - Sans Bar 2019 Tour Portland - Q Center

We’re honored to be a small part of Portland History with this event coming up! Sans Bar is a sober bar out of Austin, TX dedicated to fostering meaningful connection with folks, sans booze. This pop-up event in Portland is part of its 2019 national tour, and the event will support the LGBTQ community by benefiting Portland's Q Center.

Three of the four members of Purusa are sober, so this event means something special to us. Also - 1) This will be our first show with new bassist Dave Boyle and, 2) we’re doing this one full band acoustic, which we rarely do. If you’ve ever thought “man, I like this band, but they’re so F-Ing LOUD!” - then this is your show. Our tunes will be stripped down and quieter, a la Def Leppard VH1 Story Tellers. Yup, I just did that.

Q Center - 4115 N Mississippi Avenue Portland, OR 97217
