Dave B – Pearl [ALBUM]

Admittedly, I’m late getting to this Dave B album. But with a project this good, there’s really no time limits. Easily one of my favorite artists in the Northwest, Dave continues his streak of dropping consistent and timeless music with Pearl.  From the opening track to the bonus track, Dave’s 3rd album impresses with smart lyrics,

Princess Nokia Is Coming to PDX

For the last couple years I’ve been hearing a lot of hype around the name Princess Nokia, who’s previously performed under the monikers Wavy Spice and Destiny. And after doing my research, I’ve learned that Princess Nokia really is a bad ass bitch. In September Nokia released her stellar, 16-track mixtape 1992 Deluxe, and now she’s

Jah’di Levvi – Bitch I’m Awesome

Jah’di Levvi has been bubbling on the Portland scene for cool minute. He dropped a cool video for his single Melanated Brotha in December, but what really caught my attention was his latest single, the controversially titled banger, Bitch I’m Awesome.  Jah’di shows off his lyrical chops on this one over UK producer TroiBoi’s BIA instrumental, and I

Looking Forward to GirlFest 2018

One thing I’m super adamant about is giving artists from all avenues the space to create. That’s why I’m so proud that We Out Here Magazine is once again sponsoring GirlFest – the brainchild of the one and only Madison Sturdevant – which serves to promote the musical works of women in our region, culminating in a multi-genre concert

Karma Rivera Takes Over Doug Fir

When discussing the city’s best rappers, it’s hard to leave Karma Rivera off of the list. The Boriqua morena – despite lacking a tangible project – is pushing in all the right directions. Quality videos, catchy singles, a pro-female agenda, and electric live performances have helped drive Rivera into the forefront of the Portland scene.

CONCERT BUDS: Bumbershoot 2017, Day 2

CONCERT PHOTOS by MISS LOPEZ MEDIA Since we’re grown-ass ladies and wanted to conserve our energy, Renee and I decided to skip out on Friday’s Bumbershoot festivities and stay sober for the weekend (I mean, not counting all the weed we’re smoking, obvi). So we began our weekend adventure Saturday afternoon, after securing a totally

Best of the Best: Artists to See This Weekend At Bumbershoot 2017

This year will mark my third year in a row attending Bumbershoot, but this time it’s going to be way more magical because I’ll be accompanied by none other than fabulous WOHM photographer, Renee Lopez of Miss Lopez Media. The last two years it has rained for at least part the weekend, but this year is set
