Alberta Street Pub

Open 4pm to 1amish Every Day

Re-established in 2013, the Alberta Street Pub is a complete remodel of the old neighborhood Public House. The kitchen serves up an inspired and locally sourced menu to compliment our craft cocktails and the 21 rotating draft beers. The Pub continues its tradition of friendly service with skilled bartenders, table service, a live music venue, and enormous heated patio. The venue side has been updated as well with a focus on acoustics and comfort. We offer one of the best listening environments in Portland with an intimate setting and a high quality sound system. Whether it’s bluegrass, jazz, folk, country, soul, or funk you’ll find something to love nearly every night of the week.

Melville

Future unknown, the model currently on display is the combined effort of a band in the making since 2011 when songwriter and vocalist Ryan T. Jacobs first debuted Melville at Portland staple the LaurelThirst Pub. Since then, he’s found not just a steadfast lineup but also a family in band members Tim Skerpon (drums) and Thomas Yates (bass).

As the band grows together interpersonally, so will the music transform sonically. Founded on openness and a collaborative spirit, there’s a tangible longevity to Melville that begs the four-piece to explore and discover new layers to its sound.

Melville’s introductory offering, Maquette, was recorded at Type Foundry Studios with Adam Selzer (M. Ward, Sallie Ford, Blind Pilot, The Decemberists, Peter Buck of R.E.M., She & Him) and mastered by Gus Elg at Sky Onion (Typhoon, Nurses, Horse Feathers, Blue Cranes), and has garnered radio play on Portland stations like KINK, KNRK and KZME. For now, Maquette is the base layer—but Melville will be charting a fresh course from here.

Melville are currently in the studio with Gregg Williams (The Dandy Warhols, Blitzen Trapper, Sheryl Crow, etc) working on the follow-up to Maquette.

Indie back-beat, soul-pop and disco with a Pink Floyd twist, incorporating such sonic touchstones as David Bowie, Radiohead, Sade and Michael Jackson, to the funk andsmooth sailing yacht rock andpsychedelic jams of the 70's
