The Showdown

Located in SE Portland, The Showdown specializes in Country, Country Western, Alt-Country, Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana shows but is open to hosting bands of all genres including rock, blues, and many others. Founded by the owners of Dante’s, a premiere hard rock club in town, the aesthetics are supurb, the stage lighting and sound are excellent, the bartenders are experienced and friendly, and it’s an all-around solid club to both attend and perform in for local and national touring artists.
