Goodfoot!!! We're Back!!!

The Goodfoot, 2845 SE Stark St , Portland, Oregon

We played our first Goodfoot show in 2004. It has become our home... Where we take the most risks musically... Where we are right there on the dance floor with you. We are so excited to be back sharing that funky, joyous energy with you again!
Please note: The Goodfoot has a proof of vaccination policy in the live music space downstairs. See the details of the policy at www.thegoodfoot.com, and if you really want to support the venues and musicians that make live music happen, please go get vaccinated if you haven't already! Thank you!
