Portland’s Finest: The Builders and the Butchers at the Tractor Tavern


Portland is good for a lot of things, like shopping (no sales tax!), filling the car up with gas (they actually have people that pump your gas FOR you) and doughnuts (VooDoo… need we say more?) But one of our favorite things about Portland is The Builders and the Butchers.

With a raw falsetto that is not unlike the vocal chops of Brian Molko of Placebo, frontman Ryan Sollee leads the quintet in vivid Americana rock, making them one of the most talked about PacNW bands in the late 2000’s. Known for lively performances and lyrical storytelling, The Builders and the Butchers thrives on connecting with their audience.

The group’s third album, Dead Reckoning, releases next Tuesday, but tonight they’ll be playing the Tractor Tavern with Murder By Death and Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets.

2/16 Murder By Death/The Builders and the Butchers/Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets at Tractor Tavern :: Doors at 9:00 PM :: Tickets are $15 at the door :: 21+
