Before Portland earned its reputation as a playground for young adults, it was (and continues to be) home to individuals who devoted themselves to lifelong efforts at creative endeavors. Thankfully, this side of the city endures amid escalating stereotypes, and is on display with the musical project Don't. Formed in 2009, the band combines the talents of legendary local musicians Sam Henry (drummer of the Wipers, member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame, and tonight's birthday boy) and Dave Minick (bassist for Napalm Beach and more), with the pioneering spirits of guitarist Dan Lowinger (the Love Lasers) and vivacious frontwoman Jenny Don't. The result is music that sounds effortlessly timeless, while pulsating with that new and earnest energy we call rock 'n' roll—soon to be captured on a new 7-inch for DIY Long Island imprint Dead Broke Rekerds.
