There's only one place hardcore enough to host a night bands tonight and that's The Smell in downtown. After all, it is their 10-Year Anniversary Series.

If you go, make sure you hear the easy listening punk sounds of Portland's Magic Johnson and quite good experimental punk of NASA Space Universe.
