Somerset Meadows

Hey, we're Somerset Meadows! You like energetic? You like rock? We are here to deliver it to you!

We've been playing the Portland area in our latest incarnation for 4 years, and have roots here in various bands for more than a decade. Natural comparisons to Guided by Voices and REM are often brought up by others. Me, I'd say we play big pop songs. We have many.

I believe every band should have a goal. Personally, I'd like to write a great song. A really great song. Money, fame... not so interesting.

We're prompt, really enjoy playing, and don't need cash to play (although a drink ticket is always appreciated). No problems with opening slots, closing slots, or tiny stages. Really, we're not rock star prima donnas — we come to rock. [+]
