Hood River’s alt.country specialists, All Night Station, perform a house concert at 401 Montello Ave., Hood River, Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $6. Call 387-4011 for more information.
All Night Station is a four-piece band from the Columbia River Gorge area. They describe their style as country music you won’t hear on the radio, music that’s defined more by the landscape than by Nashville hit factories — rock and roll with banjos and mandolins, and old bluegrass tunes with an occasional electric guitar; “the real country music — stuff from the dirt and from the heart.”
Their musical influences span the decades from the old-timey musicians to modern alt-country and rock bands: they cover tunes from Bill Monroe, the Louvin Brothers, to Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, and Uncle Tupelo.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
