I'm thinking of moving to Portland. I'm a singer/songwriter musician, and my style of music is alternative. I was wondering if there was a particular area in Portland that caters to musicians such as venues, record label companies etc.
Thanks for any advice you can share.

Go over to Music Millenium on the east side and hang out, talk to people. Also Apple Row down in Old Town. Get the alternative papers, like Willamette Week, that will give you all the local venues, such as the Crystal Ballroom. And Craigslist will give you an idea of the gigs. You need to be more specific about your style-- we have alternative metal to alternative country around here, it's extremely diverse. It's also extremely competitive. Good luck.
