This Saturday Night is gonna take off… Come join us for what will be another of those legendary evenings at The Goodfoot!
The Funk has returned in the form of The DooDoo! Hailing from the planet DookieOn, the All-Stars were sent here to fling the pooh across the GLOBE! The Congress of DookieOn chose the hottest musicians from their planet and sent them to earth to continue to spread the FUNK. Alongside the DooDoo Funk King (Tony Ozier) they traveled the light years to this planet and have now made Portland their home base.
The Chicharones (fresh off of Vans Warped Tour) – are a hip hop duo featuring Sleep, of Oldominion, and Josh Martinez–whose lyrics are as conscious as their live show is banging!
