It's going to be a busy, rock n' rolling weekend in Portland!

Happy 70th B-day to David Gilmore of the Floyd!!!! In a case of perfect timing the USA answer to Pink Floyd, The Machine, will rock the State Theater Friday night. Doors open at 7PM with the show kicking off at 8PM. Tickets are $20 in advance or $23 at the door.

Ever wondered what it's like rocking n' rolling and touring the world for 30+ years? Get your answer! Saturday night Scott Ian of Anthrax will take the stage at Port City Music Hall. Ian's one-man 'Speaking Words' tour gives you an inside look at the band and 'ridiculous truth' from the road. The video above (which is very NSFW) gives you a little taste of what to expect. Hint: Lots of F-bombs.

Doors open at 8PM, show at 9PM. Tickets are $20 advance, $24 day of show or $30 Preferred Seating.
