So, yeah…Riviera is back…sorta. As most loyal readers know, Mick and I moved to Portland a while back. Well, this city is just too great to NOT play here. And since we have a ton of stuff to sell still we figured it made sense to resurrect the Riviera name.
You can get all the nitty gritty details on the band’s website or at ReverbNation, but the gist is that we found some great, great players here in Portland and will be playing some shows starting December 4.
In the meantime, enjoy this clip of me and pal Hamilton Sims of Little Beirut covering New Order’s “Love Vigilantes” shot in the GLONO West HQ, La Finca.
We miss the Chicago crew something fierce and could never replace those boys even if we wanted to. But the music calls! Be sure to check out Josh B’s new joint too.
