Portland pop punk royalty Hutch Harris of The Thermals wrote a piece called “Just Visiting: A Brief History of Logan Lynn” for this week’s issue of the Portland Mercury, out tomorrow.

It’s about my troubled youth, escape from the abusive church I was raised in, and subsequent journey into wellness and peace…oh, and my new record. Thanks so much for taking such a thoughtful approach to telling this story, Hutch.

You should all know that, like me, my mom and dad have done full 180s in their own lives in the years since some of this stuff happened. We love each other and are so close these days! The two of them turning into LGBTQ activists over the past decade is one of the happiest parts of this story’s happy ending. ❤️💛💚💙💜

“QUICKLY AS WE PASS” VIDEO FEATURED ON THE PORTLAND MERCURY’S MUSIC BLOG: END HITS!!!

Looks like I got some more local love today for the new video! This time from The Portland Mercury. You can watch the video and see what they had to say by clicking the current issue cover below or keep reading below that…

From The Portland Mercury: (3/22/2011)

“Portland electronica artist Logan Lynn’s been pretty quiet since taking a break from music to focus on LGBTQ rights at Portland’s Q Center, but today he premiered a new video for his single “Quickly As We Pass,” directed by Jeffrey McHale. There’s some NSFW stuff happening here, as the 2-D cutouts populating Lynn’s world become braver and more amorous, but it’s still pretty tame for End Hits standards. Enjoy!”

LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PDX SHOW PREVIEWED BY THE PORTLAND MERCURY TODAY!

The Portland Mercury thinks you should come tonight, too. Listen up! You can check out what they had to say about Pride NW, my Summer tour with The Gentry and our kick-off show tonight HERE or just keep reading below.

From The Portland Mercury: (5/27/2010)

“Portland Pride 2010 Entertainment Is, Umm, Announced — Logan Lynn + The Gentry — Not officially part of the Portland Pride music line-up, but officially one of the badassest shows happening for Pride weekend.

So, Pride Northwest has announced its headlining entertainment for the ever-popular Portland Pride Waterfront Festival festivities, June 19 and 20. Here are some of the names: Amber, Angie Evans, The Cliks, God-des & She, Yehonathan. Oh yeah. And Blake Lewis, of course.

I’ve got to be frank, I just personally find little of that line-up to be compelling. But that’s just me! You know how I roll [insert musical snobbish snorting noise here]. Pride Northwest has every right to waste spend its money on whatever kind of entertainment its little heart desires.

But! There’s an upside to this. Because the mainstage offerings from Pride Northwest are so downright yawnsville, we here at Portland Mercury Queer Issue HQ are happy to recommend a boatload of alternative Pride weekend shows and queer performances, stacked with tons of great local talent, and we’ll be doing just that in the weeks leading up to Pride weekend.

Here’s an early tip: one of my fave Pride weekend shows this year features the ascendant electro-emo stylings of Logan Lynn + The Gentry, Saturday June 19 as part of a special Pride weekend Blow Pony showcase, which is also rumored to include the likes of Atole, Jer Ber Jones and Kaj-anne Pepper, among lots of other rad peoples. I should mention, btw, that Lynn kicks off his Northwest tour, featuring a spate of Pride fest stops (Salem Pride! Capital Pride! The Cuff Block Party in Seattle for Seattle Pride!), TONIGHT at the Doug Fir, 9 pm onward. Lynn’s thrown a couple of unreleased raw tracks from his new album my way for a listen, and boys and girls this kid is up to interesting stuff.”
