The Lot at Zidell Yards brings the best of Portland together in the city's premier socially distanced outdoor performance venue.
Join them on July 16 for an incredible performance from Ural Thomas and The Pain.
Ural Thomas is, and forever will be Portland's pillar of soul. He started singing in church at the age of 3. By high school he led the doo-wop group the Mono Rays, breaking hearts and taking names at Jefferson. Ural's voice and songwriting soon gained national attention and he found himself sharing the stage with the likes of James Brown, Otis Redding, Johnny Guitar Watson and "Little" Stevie Wonder. He played the Apollo 44 times. He backed the Northwest's biggest soul and garage outfits of the1960s (The Kingsmen, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Cavaliers Unlimited) and he never for a moment stopped teaching, singing and loving soul music. Now backed by a 9 piece band comprised of some of the most recognizable session and solo players in Portland; Ural Thomas & The Pain perform shows with songs from the gilded age of soul and R&B and Ural originals, all with a sharp focus on moving the dance floor.
