Portland Music Scene on Fuse TV

Portland Music Scene on Fuse TV

Fuse, Fuse Music TV, or Fusic TV as I like to call it, has a quick 4+ minute overview of the Portland music scene. Yes, they only talk to some of the bigger names in town like The Thermals, Menomena, and Colin Meloy of the Decemberists, but it’s not as cringe-worthy as the first episode of Portlandia. Are you an indie band in need of a town? C’mon down (or up) … I guess we can make room for one or two more.

As the host says, “Welcome to Portland Oregon, where people come to enjoy the great outdoors and the sound of nature. SCREW THAT, LET’S ROCK!” Thanks to Portland Mercury’s Blogtown for the heads-up.

    I’ll have to check FUSE out when I get a chance…trying to “cringe” my way through all 6 initial episodes of Portlandia (they were renewed for 10 more), watched the 5th installment – which focuses on aspects of the Portland music scene, and that featured Colin Meloy, James Mercer and Corin Tucker as fictitious band Echo Echo.

    This episode was as uneven as past episodes, but I still consider myself a fan, appreciating the Kafka-esque and pomo aspects of the show (awkward silence, lack of a narrative thread) that most shows couldn’t get away with…
