Music of Oregon: Alternative/Indie


Before the pandemic hit, Curbside Press would make a playlist of the bands playing in Oregon over the month. Now that most live shows aren't happening, we decided to make a set of playlists of different genres of music made in Oregon. Our first playlist was rock, so we figured we would show off the softer side of Oregon's music scene.


This weekend's playlist: Alternative/Indie.


We here at Curbside recognize that each genre is sprawling and broad. These playlists will try to be a variety of styles along that wide spectrum, with the purpose of encompassing the Oregon music scene. Did we miss something? Let us know at our website here.
