Our Pop is So Fresh!

Greetings Planet Earth,

We are Dr. Something and the Poppin’ Fresh Love Engines, a four-piece acoustic pop ensemble from Portland, OR. You may find a couple mp3s in the music section of this site and streaming audio at http://www.myspace.com/drsomething. We are in the initial planning stages of putting together an official recorded release, so hold tight!

If you would like to see us live, our next scheduled performances are:

  • Wednesday May 14th, 12:00 PM – PSU Park Blocks (SW Park and Market)
  • Friday May 30th, 7:00 PM – Rererato (5135 NE 42nd Ave.)
  • Saturday June 21st, 6:00 PM – Mississippi Pizza (3552 N. Mississippi Ave.) with Audie Darling

Here’s what some folks have been saying about us:

“Wacky bands singing folky sea chanties about robot doppelgängers are sort of odd, but they’re bunches more fun than the stodgy folk traditionalists who take their genre too seriously. Dr. Something & the Poppin’ Fresh Love Engines, a quartet that includes both mandolin and accordion, aren’t interested in how the music should be played—they’re playing it to have fun.” – Jim Sandberg, Willamette Week

“Best voice in Portland!” – John Barrios, founder of the Love Harder record label

“I cried while we were recording. …I thought [“Escapist Artists”] was such a beautiful song.” – Jim Mulhearn, Producer/Engineer at Trash Factory Recording Studio in an interview on KBOO Radio.
