The UpKeeps Erupt With New Single Following A Slew Of Portland Performances

The UpKeeps have been on a rampage in Portland since the start of the year, with shows at Coffin Club, Twilight, Dante’s, Kelly’s Olympian, and a Friends of Noise showcase in N. Portland this past Saturday. It’s little wonder they’re in such high demand; they put on some of the most exciting live shows in the scene.

They’re kicking it up one more notch today with the release of Down N’ Out, a brand-new single that extends their legacy as the city’s purest rock n’ roll band. With hints of David Bowie and the Romones, combined with vintage guitars and modern passion, The UpKeeps strike at the heart of genre, providing contrast with the eclectic range and styles that proliferate in the post-pandemic era.

You’ll have your chance to see and hear them for yourself THIS FRIDAY at SHUTTER, a celebration of Portland punk, hard rock, and live music photography

The photos below were captured on Feb. 16th, 2024 at Coffin Club, where they tore up the stage in a packed room full of fans on a Friday night. Give them a follow for future updates, stream the new track a few dozen times, and don’t miss this Friday’s featured event. This scene is on fire.
