Tim Too Slim Langford - photo by Dean DavisThis past February, a concert was held in Portland to help raise funds to cover expenses for Tim “Too Slim” Langford’s cancer treatments. It was a huge success with many of the best performers in the city taking part. In appreciation, Tim will be bringing his band to Portland to say thanks in the best way they know how — by having a concert.

Northwest favorites and Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame members Too Slim & The Taildraggers will be appearing at Peter’s Room and The Roseland Theater on Thursday, May 7. This band of blues rockers are known for their incendiary performances filled with slashing slide guitar and heavy backing rhythm. This is the ultimate in power blues trios, and be sure to get there early as this room will fill up quickly.

If this wasn’t a barn-burning show in itself, opening the night will be guitar hero Big Monti Amundson, with his own power blues.

Show time is 7:30 pm and this is a 21 & over only concert. Tickets may be purchased in advance at CascadeTickets.com for $16.00 (plus service charge and handling fee) This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, and tickets are available at the door for members showing their current CBA cards for $15.00 (no extra fees). Peter’s Room at The Roseland is located at 8 NW 6th.
