The Kingsmen put Portland on the map and popularized the greatest garage rock anthem of all time, “Louie, Louie.” After all these years The Kingsmenare 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 Kisn Everywhere 95.1 KISN FM – Portland’s real oldies radio. Started in 1959, s broadcast the likes of The Kingsmen, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Sonics, The Fabulous Wailers, and all so many of the great NW-and-beyond bands back when they we’re brand new. KISN is now listener-supported and they need our help to keep the airwaves of Portland, Oregon filled with good times and great oldies.
We’ll have a bunch of announcements in the upcoming weeks so please stay tuned and spread the word – Nuggets Night is BACK!
