Al's Den

April 8th-14th

Having recently returned to his Portland hometown after 7 years in New York City, Mitch Wilson is bringing his musically diverse experience and sound to McMenamins Al's Den. This week long residency is the story of Mitch as told through his musical history from beginnings to present day. Many people may know him best behind the scenes, but this April Mitch reaches out beyond the kit with a different musical theme each evening. You will get a glimpse into who Mitch is as an artist and how his special guests have shaped his musical life and career. 

Nightly, alongside his friends and fellow musicians from PDX, he will perform personalized selections from his storied journey. From his beginnings as a jazz drummer à la "Whiplash" studying under Portland's finest Thara Memory and Mel Brown, to theater orchestra pit training at Portland Center Stage, to teeth cutting in Portland indie rock bands. Though Mitch is a Portland native, the Rose City may not yet be able to put a melody to a name, "Wilson creates music that mirrors the mood of the city where he resides." - Earmilk Music Blog.

This is an opportunity for the Portland scene to get to know one of their own a little better. His focus has now turned to his own songwriting as he is adding another chapter to this musical story. His original compositions will be featured every night as the headlining act. Come by any evening, introduce yourself, say hello, Mitch would love to meet you and share his sound and style in the place where it at began.

New music

My latest single "You'll Never Find Me" is available now on Soundcloud. Check out what Earmilk said about the track:

"'You'll Never Find Me' is a mellow song filled with emotion. The atmospheric elements of the tune bring the listener to a peaceful place. You can also hear 80's inspired components, which add a nostalgic vibe."
Winston Brewington Jr. for Earmilk Music Magazine

You'll Never Find Me

See Right Thru You

Say Anything

How High Is high



"Get swept away by the infectious music, uplifting story, and dazzling dance numbers that have made Mamma Mia! a worldwide phenomenon. As wedding festivities commence on an idyllic Greek island, a young bride-to-be schemes to discover the identity of her father from among three men from her mother’s past. Through the eternally catchy score of ABBA chart-toppers, the hilarious and touching tale of daughter, mother, and would-be dads crescendos to an exhilarating finale celebration you simply can’t resist!"

“LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your eardrums lately” - Eleven Magazine

In an age where popular culture pushes to “out-extreme” the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism. Anthony Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.  ||  LiquidLight Website  ||
