(Photos by Tom Chamberlain) Nathan Baumgartner is funny. He is not a comedian. He is the singer for my favorite band in Portland, And And And. His songs feature witty, wry humor amidst dark, honest, revealing lyrics. This mixture crosses over into his performances on “Who’s the Ross?” In a little over a year, Nathan has been […]

How does each episode of Who’s the Ross? get booked??? Good question! For a local, AND WEEKLY, late-night talk show, I have been quite thrilled with our stacked guest lineups, of late.

Fright Town, Portland’s premier haunted house, presented a dozen of their finest and scariest monsters, who adorned the stage most of the night, whether they were singing […]

It’s always Halloween in Portland! 365 days of “Keeping It Weird!” People constantly look like they’re in costume…is it a hipster, homeless, or someone in a Jack Sparrow costume?!? (I JUST DON’T KNOW!) So no surprises that “Who’s the Ross? gives you THREE CHANCES to celebrate Halloween with us this year! Starting Oct 20, at Dante’s, we […]

This was a night of many surprises… A street performer/karaoke legendary bringing the audience to their knees, then back up again for a standing applause, a shy musical guest making our host blush with stories akin to her namesake, and a DIY film crew being upstaged by a foul-mouthed, crass, horny goblin puppet. When you […]
