We love everything about TheTHESIS. From its prominent location at one of Portland’s best venues to our resident DJ, the First Thursday hip-hop concert consistently continues to entertain fans and bring artists together from across the city’s varied rap community… and sometimes even beyond.

After two and a half years, TheTHESIS is still going strong.

Putting up three rappers and a special guest is fun and all but I want to be honest, I get tired of the template sometimes, and I know you do too. So here in May, for the monthly first Thursday hip-hop extravaganza we call TheTHESIS, we’ll be switching it up and doing something a little

The Thesis Recap: October

This Thesis was a doozy! So many dope artists came out to support each other… Just good vibes, dope talent and Unity in the room. Kelly’s was packed before the first artist even went on stage and we sold out the show by 10:30!  I just want to say that all of this went on
