X-Ray Visions: A Look Inside Portland's Legendary X-Ray Cafe (DIY)

X-Ray Visions: A Look Inside Portland's Legendary X-Ray Cafe (DIY) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An in-depth account of one of the most important cultural epicenters in Portland's history, "X-Ray Visions" tells the story of the X-Ray Cafe, an ABC NO RIO/924 Gilman-esque "Nightclub" that hosted bands like Green Day, Crash Worship, Nation of Ulysses, Neurosis, Everclear, Smegma, Poison Idea, and virtually every touring act from '89-'94. Did you ever wonder how Portland appeared on the map as THE epicenter for weird, alternative arts and culture? It was because of the X-Ray - an entirely unique all-ages venue with a true "anything goes" aesthetic--a punk band, a circus act, toddlers banging on things, language classes, 25 cent advice, and a spanking evangelist might all appear on a single bill - and its presence put Portland on the map as a radical, rock and roll kind of town.

About the Author

Ben Ellis is a former organizer of the X-Ray Cafe. He lives in New Orleans.
