I love the Shins, they live here in Portland! I read on Wiki. We truly have a great city.

Actually they are originally from Albuquerque, but they have been based out of Portland for a while.

SO the best Portland band is a band from Olympia Washington?


The Decemberists are the best band FROM (and still in) Portland!

I love that song on radio (phantom limb). NEVER knew who sing it,until yesterday I asked. Then I google them, found they are here in Portland! I am so happy now.

Doesn't one of the Shins have a food cart in N. Portland? Or am I thinking of another band of that ilk?
(Agree with davemess10 about the Decemberists. We saw them at the Schnitzer and it was such a great show! Got to love a band that not only uses the word "dirigible" in a song, but also rhymes it.)
