Loch Lomond + Portland’s mayor = “Listen Local”

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010, 3:43 pm by Ben Salmon

A few notes here:

1) This commercial was made to promote the city of Portland’s “Listen Local” program, which ensures local artists are played as hold music across the city’s telephone system.

2) This commercial is awesome.

3) Loch Lomond — which features members who grew up in Bend, including frontman Ritchie Young (that’s him on the right with the guitar) — is playing the Tower Theatre on July 22 as part of the PDXchange Program. Also on the bill: Portland Cello Project.

4) How do we get the city of Bend to do this? There’s lots of great music being made here in town. Why not promote it via official municipal hold music?
