"The Portland, Oregon-based advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy has been running with a dope series on its home city called “Don’t Move Here,” a sentiment some of us totally get since we in fact did move there (and then moved away). Hosted by WK music director/dope photographer/our friend Shayla Hason (WHAT UP SHAYLA), they’re interviewing a clutch of Portland’s disproportionately copious scene of musicians, artists and ideators, talking about what makes that city so special."

"And, crucially, indie groups always have good experiences here, because the city produces very enthusiastic rock crowds. Ask a musician why they relocated to Portland and, from Britt Daniel on down, the most common response is: "We came through on tour and I thought it was awesome." It might not be enough to lure the glitterati, but Portland's combination of affordability, natural beauty, and laid-back weirdness is an independent artist's dream."

"One of the great things, and there are many, about living in Portland is our music scene. I probably don’t have to tell you too much about the broad strokes since music magazines, blog scribes and even that dying behemoth MTV have gushed out loud about what’s going on here. But, what they tend to leave out are the details, the inner-workings and the tinder that keeps the fire burning."

Anytime you make a documentary on the Portland music scene, a few common topics are brought up. Portland is cheap. Portland has lots of basements. Portland is creative. And, of course, the biggie: it rains ALL THE TIME. But there are a lot of stories that haven’t been told, and I think that’s what Wieden+Kennedy is aiming for in Don’t Move Here, a new multi-part documentary on the PDX music community that is slowly trickling onto the web."
