The Band CAMINO with flor and Hastings at the Roseland Theater on 03/31/22 Photos


The Band CAMINO just played to a sellout audience at the Roseland Theater in Portland. The band is currently on tour in support of their 2022 The Tour Camino and the tour lineup includes the Hood River originated, Flor and show opener Hastings. The tour is a strong triple bill of indie pop/rock that packed in the Roseland show for a great night of rock

Headliners, The Band CAMINO have been making a major impact since their start, amassing 2.5 million monthly Spotify listeners and more than 330 million global streams to date. In addition to selling out multiple headline tours and hitting the major festival circuit with performances at Lollapalooza, Forecastle, and Austin City Limits, where they were named a “breakout act” by Grammy.com, the band has developed a highly engaged worldwide fanbase. Their rise has been largely stimulated by raw discovery, even catching the attention of Taylor Swift, who included the band’s reflective track “Berenstein” on her “Songs I’m Loving Right Now” playlist in 2018.

This show was great to see and for many reasons. With the pandemic on the decline, it was great seeing crowds back at the rock show. With mask mandates lifted, things are starting to finally feel a little normal again. There is just something special about live music environment. We all have been missing this for quite some time. The bands and the fans both need this interaction so let’s hope this positive trend continues.

With that said, there is also an element of sadness and frustration here as well. The Roseland Theater is one of Portland, Oregon’s best live music venues. The 1,400 capacity theater hosts diverse genres of music artists and has a rich history of live shows. Walking up to the venue, it was sad to see the building’s boarded-up windows, which were covered in spray point, and homeless tents right there in front of the building.

Our leaders in Portland really need to seriously do something about the issues facing our downtown. There seems to be so much talk on these issues, but it seems like the problems are not going away. It is truly a sad thing seeing places like the Roseland feel the need to do this simply to protect themselves from vandalism and unlawfulness. There are a lot of politics to argue here, but the bottom line if bands and fans do not feel safe, they won’t go. With the Roseland in mind, our music community and Portland in general NEEDS venues like this and cannot afford to lose it. The Roseland is truly an epicenter for our music community so let’s PLEASE take care of places like this as well as others in our downtown Portland area. We love and appreciate you Roseland.
