Here Comes Everybody 30th Anniversary and CD Release Party



Saturday, September 24th, The Alberta Street Pub, Portland, Oregon

The dynamic Portland pop rock duo Here Comes Everybody turned 30 in 2016! In celebration, HCE will release “Everything Is Here:1986-1992,” a two disc collection of the band’s complete early recordings, most of which have never before been available on cd or digital download. That’s right, in 1986 indy bands were releasing mostly cassette tapes! The band’s first four e.p.’s have been lovingly remastered and repackaged for your listening and tactile pleasure. 22 songs! Additionally, the band hopes to screen its first rock video since “Blue Refrigerator”! 

Joining HCE on the bill is Dirty Looks, Portland’s only surf-hip-hop rock band. 

Come help the band (Michael, René, and Don) celebrate this most momentous ocassion!
