FRIDAY JUNE 24 AND SATURDAY JUNE 25 – NUGGETS NIGHT RETURNS TO MISSISSIPPI STUDIOS FOR TWO NIGHTS OF GARAGE ROCK TRIBUTES WITH SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCES BY FLAMIN’ GROOVIES AND THE KINGSMEN TO BENEFIT 95.1 KISN RADIO!
Friday, June 24
(Doors at 7, Music at 8)
Flamin Groovies headline night one of Nuggets Night 2016. The Cyril Jordan, Chris Wilson, and George Alexander lineup is BACK IN ACTION. With the addition of Victor Penalosa on drums, Flamin Groovies continue to present their own unique and infectious style of rock n roll with such cult classics as “Shake Some Action,” “Slow Death,” and “Teenage Head.” Eyelids, The Pynnacles, The Reverberations, Beyond Veronica, and Karaoke From Hell open the evening with covers from Nuggets series box sets and beyond.
Saturday, June 25
(Doors at 6, Music at 7, The Kingsmen at 9)
The Kingsmen put Portland on the map and popularized the greatest garage rock anthem of all time, “Louie, Louie.” After all these years The Kingsmen are still at it and we are beyond thrilled to welcome them to Nuggets Night as our honored guests. The evening revs up and gets down with Portland’s truest believers paying tribute to garage, psych, pop, bubble gum, soul and more.
This year’s beneficiary is 95.1 KISN FM – Portland’s real oldies radio. Started in 1959, KISN has broadcast the likes of The Kingsmen, Paul Revere & the Raiders, The Sonics, The Wailers, and many of the great NW bands back when the bands were brand new. KISN is now listener-supported and they need our help to keep the airwaves of Portland filled with good times and great oldies.
95.1 KISN Radio, Portland’s original oldies channel. KISN started broadcasting on May 1, 1959. KISN introduced Oregonians to many of the bands featured on the Nuggets compilations back when the bands were brand new, including The Kingsmen and Paul Revere & the Raiders. Friends and fans of Nuggets know how important oldies channels are and Portland is lucky to have a station like KISN with DJs playing real rock and roll on real records!
