Ural Thomas & The Pain Laurelthirst Happy Hours: Wednesday & Thursday, August 10 & 11; 6 To 8pm Free! says
Portland's own legendary purveyor of deep soul, Ural Thomas, will be bringing his well-oiled band of young talent to the Laurelthirst for a couple of free, roadhouse, juke-joint style shows! TWO DAYS IN A ROW!

Thomas' public return to music has been one of the great Portland stories of the last few years. Once a regular at Harlem's Apollo Theater and a colleague of James Brown, Otis Redding and other soul greats, Thomas walked away from the music business and settled into a quieter life in his hometown. In his 70s now, he's making up for lost time now with the Pain, a band of young guns led by drummer Scott Magee. With a hand from producer Nick Waterhouse, Thomas and the Pain have recently released a full-length album -- one that revives lost Thomas classics and envisions new ones.

You're unlikely to catch The Pain in such an intimate setting again soon! Come on down!
