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.

Months began as the home recording project of Wilson Vediner (Point Juncture, WA) and evolved into a band in 2012 with the addition of Aaron Robert Miller (Gooses, Deer or the Doe) on guitar and vocals, Courtney Sheedy (PJWA, Swim Swam Swum, ioa) on bass, and Will Hattman (Down Gown, Jana Osta, At Dusk) on drums. Vediner, whose aggressive guitar-playing has been a constant on Portland stages for more than a decade, had to be coaxed by his bandmates to get behind a microphone. With Miller’s trademark howl providing a thrilling backbone to Vediner’s vulnerable melodies, the dueling vocalists in Months evoke Fugazi at their sweetest. The rhythm section of Sheedy and Hattman adds a breakneck intensity throughout, and on the album’s centerpiece, “Annihilation,” the band reaches a peculiar euphoria that offers no release.
