The Minus 5 continues to be one rickety roadster driven by Scott McCaughey, with Peter Buck as co-pilot, amidst countless other more talented friends. This evening’s festivities will celebrate the 13th long play under this moniker, starting with 1994’s Old Liquidator, through a 2003 collaboration with Wilco (Down With Wilco). His ode to Portland (2009’s 'Killingsworth'), an all-new five-record set in 2014 called 'Scott The Hoople In The Dungeon Of Horror', and holiday outing 'Dear December' in 2017. In November 2017, Scott suffered a stroke while on tour with Alejandro Escovedo and The Minus 5, thus quite nearly pulling the plug on his life and big-time rock career. Thanks to the help of friends, family and fans, Scott spent 2018 recovering, and embarking on a series of “Therapy Sessions” at Portland happy hours, gradually gaining back piece by piece, much of what he’d lost.

Now 2019 will bring new McCaughey (pronounced “McCoy”) music with Young Fresh Fellows, Filthy Friends, The No Ones, Arthur Buck, as well as The Minus 5. And no doubt some others. Thank YOU.

The live band lineup for June 22nd: Jim Talstra, Steve Drizos, Jenny Conlee, Casey Neill, Alia Farah, Scott McCaughey, Peter Buck
