Gram Parsons lived just 26 years but made an indelible mark on the genre that would come to be known as Americana. He called it Cosmic American Music and his two solo albums and work with the International Submarine Band, The Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers are his legacy. The music scene of Portland, Oregon draws inspiration from his legacy like few others. Many local bands include his songs in their repertoire as have Shorty and the Mustangs throughout their twenty+ year history. Join us for a night of unforgettable music and memories!
