I took a new approach to finding those hidden gems that some call vandalism this week. Usually I have a neighborhood in mind before heading out, but this time I decided to drive until a tag caught my eye just simply heading south on the east side of town. A few blocks into the Hosford […]
They say that baseball is America’s pastime. Getting “taken out to the ballgame” is somewhat of a childhood obligation in this country, which I am certainly proud to be a part of, nonetheless, we enthusiastically stroll out in mass numbers to watch nine players on each side, stride and slide, gallantly in a baseball uniform, […]
I first met Jesse Malinowski after my sophomore year in college, while I was working at Inner City Empire screen printing in Seattle. Jesse was my manager there and between teaching me the craft, told me about the record company he had started. I was new to the scene, but respected his hustle and […]

E+E ran into the King of the Northwest, Luck One, down at SXSW and chopped it up. We caught a couple live shows and heard what he had to say about Harlem vs. Portland, how he really feels about SX and the recent controversy over his show at the Blue Monk!
While down at SXSW, we linked up with the homie from Vancouver, D Worthy, who was fresh off of a live show. We chopped it up about his plans for SX, his team, the Blow Up Kids, and what to bring for a perfect experience in Austin. Check out our chat plus footage from his […]
During our trip to Austin, we met up with Cassow after his show at The Lodge to talk about the PDX hip-hop scene (or lack thereof), Danny Seth and Been Trill, and his plans after Austin. Check out our conversation plus footage of his super hype live show.
Oh baby, brace yo’ self – it’s goin’ down once this playlist starts. Hopefully the candles are already lit and the wine is finished because these sounds pulse a magnetism to that special someone. Don’t fight it. Dim the lights and show them how much they mean to you.
For our second ever E+Etv segment, we visited WILD FANG down in SE, where Emma and Julia are redefining women’s clothing. We sat down in ‘The Fort’ to talk about today’s TOMBOY, their new collection and why WILDFANGs make the best customers. Check them out at wildfang.com or @wearewildfang! And for a little extra treat, […]

This week was solid. Cool to see some pieces on trucks – it’s like a traveling art show and some new names up in No Po. The nights have been clearer and the night marauders are roaming. If anyone needs a lookout let me know. Also – if you know of hubs of street art […]
It’s the first day of Spring! Regardless of the weather in Portland right now, we can feel the summertime mayhem is getting closer. And we all know what that means – your social calendar is about to explode. Happy hours will be an everyday thing. Work will take a back seat. And everything in sight […]
In the world of fashion, it is not often you find someone as comfortable in front of the camera as they are behind it. I was introduced to Natasha Sandy through her blog, mylifemyfashionpdx.tumblr.com, but soon found out that she is as busy behind the scenes as she is on her Instagram page. As Fashion Director […]

Hitting the streets, meeting everyone, listening for the best tunes… The Inc hits SXSW. Take a look at all they are excited about here.
Happy Thursday. I got out and about downtown this week to find some sunny throw-ups. Good work Portland, but I’m seeing a lot of painted over (now blank) walls, which is by no means your fault, but we can’t stand for this. Grab you cans, pens, or whatever your medium is and get those tags […]

SUNDAY SOUNDS Music holds a unique and special role in each of our lives. A melody can go unheard for years and then roll out of a passing open car window and immediately immerse us in a specific moment, years agos – the feeling washing over, head to toe. Every Sunday you can find a […]

Portland is a hub for creativity and the culture here encourages you to share that with everyone. Graffiti is no exception to this invite.

WAXED OUT WEEKLY delivers new music to keep your record collection fresh and stacked to the ceiling words + photo by @Evan_Gabriel_ Standing in his living room with Star Wars blaring, Stewart Villain seems anything but worried. In fact, he’s nonchalant. The twenty-four year-old producer-rapper has managed to make a living selling his beats, defining […]

As of late, the nation’s eyes have been fixed on Chicago for both positive and negative reasons, most notably the Drill music scene (Chief Keef, King Louie) and the intense gang violence it was born from. The real question is, what will the city and its inhabitants do with all of this attention. A few […]
While running through my daily hip-hop Youtube session about a year ago, rather than my usual 15 seconds of painful ad before each video, I was introduced to one of the hottest names in Portland music. I continued getting ads for PropaneLV, a rapper/singer doing great remixes of popular songs. 6 months later, after an […]
Ok, I know I’m ridiculous, that title didn’t make it any more obvious, did it? I’m going to be honest here and admit I almost forgot to post this recipe and that’s just bonkers because this batch of cookies was the best batch I made in 2013. I made them right before I left […]
The last couple months have been busy for Marcus GoreS. Since I met the 21-year-old DJ, I have seen him behind the 1’s and 2’s at Harlem, share the stage with Riff Raff on New Years and start his new clothing line, Aeterna Absentia. Not to mention he had finals at PSU the day we […]
