Television
Television was one of the most creative bands to emerge from New York's underground scene of the mid-'70s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary. While guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd liked to jam, they didn't follow the accepted rock structures for improvisation — they removed the blues while retaining the raw energy of garage rock, adding complex, lyrical solo lines that recalled both jazz and rock.

    All Ages Art Space Rererato Is Closing It's Doors

    East Coast transplants Adam and Stephanie have made a nice niche for art in Portland with Rererato since it's inception in early 2007.. With a last few great shows in just a few weeks, Rererato will be packing up and shutting it's doors for good.. This All-Ages venue has been so much more than just music.. While it's been the anchor in KPSU's Experimental Music Series and key in the Experimental + Noise scene over the last year, they've also hosted everything from puppet shows, art galleries and television shows.
