Started in 2018, The Numberz began with the goal of unifying Portland’s black community through the air waves. By airing music from local artist, playlist from prominent members in the community, and touching on culturally significant topics through PSA’s and interviews, we aim to unify black people from the North to “The Numbers” and everywhere in between. 

Celebrating the kick-off of The Numberz 2019 fundraiser, join us for a night of performances from Cool Nutz, DJ Fatboy, Fountaine, Produce Organics, Amenta Abioto, Covi, Quinn, and Micah The Rapper.

Join us for a wonderful bill of electronic / experimental talents to benefit the Yellowhammer Fund, a grassroots organization based in Alabama which helps provide abortion access for low-income families while advocating for reproductive rights for women across the South.

Saloli, Grapefruit, Omari Jazz, Soul Ipsum, and DJ Shi Shi are contributing their diverse talents for a unique benefit show, and we encourage you to join our platform for change through music.

This show was inspired in part by the contributions of local artists who recognize the need for reproductive justice nationwide. The show is also proudly sponsored by XRAY.FM!

Join us for the Portland stop of Seattle based R&B artist SassyBlack's album release tour!

As each of us travel through life’s proverbial galaxies, inevitably we realize we’re in search of some combination of sustenance and the sage. And the Seattle-based Afrofuturist musician, SassyBlack, provides both in sonic spades. The intergalactic-minded songwriter and producer, who’s traveled the world in performance, offers listeners a 007-style glint in her eye while displaying signature piano licks and drum kicks like a full banquet in her communicative soul.

“A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, Black, who first started performing in clubs at 18, hit the public consciousness in 2008 with her hip-hop duo, THEESatisfaction, releasing two records on Sub Pop. Since, she has fostered a solo career, writing and producing all of her music and releasing 11 projects since 2015. With melodies often compared to Herbie Hancock and a voice often compared to Sarah Vaughan, Black has received acclaim from myriad publications, including Pitchfork, Noisey, Afropunk, SPIN and Essence.

With the gravity of a celestial body the gods themselves would fawn over, the artist will release her next record, Ancient Mahogany Gold, fall of 2019. Black, who has shared stages with performers like Princess Nokia and Charles Bradley, has played popular summer festivals like Capitol Hill Block Party and SXSW. And along with her music, which has been featured on the Adult Swim compilation, LUXE, her acting prowess has been featured on the HBO series, Vinyl, and Comedy Central’s Broad City. In short, she’s a modern day creative oracle.”

- A costume contest for prom king and queen
- The well-known and loved food cart Taco Pedaler
- A well-stocked bar

Katherine Paul is Black Belt Eagle Scout. Released in September of 2018, Mother of My Children was the debut album from Black Belt Eagle Scout, the recording project of Katherine Paul. Heralded as a favorite new musician of 2018 by the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, and Paste, the album was also named as a “Best Rock Album of 2018” by Pitchfork, and garnered further end-of-year praise from FADER, Under The Radar and more.

Arriving just a year after that debut record, At the Party With My Brown Friends is a brand new full-length recording from Black Belt Eagle Scout. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship.

At the Party With My Brown Friends is a profound and understated forward step. The squalling guitar anthems that shaped its predecessor are replaced by delicate vocals and soft keys, sentiments spoken and unspoken, presenting something shadowy and unsettling; a stirring of the waters.

The end result presents a captivating about-face that redefines KP’s beautifully singular artistic vision.
