The Story
The Northwestern Band started in 2008 when lead singer Gordon returned from a 4 month venture at the nation’s only artists’ colony exclusively for up-and-coming musicians; the Contemporary Music Center (CMC).

Shortly after Gordon’s return he asked the guys if they would be interested in playing a show in Portland. They all agreed and played for the first time as “Gordon Avenue” at one of the oldest running venues in America; the Satyricon. It was there that they shocked the venue’s staff by pre-selling over 150 tickets—practically selling out the Satyricon.

In the Spring of 2009, less than a year from their birth, “Gordon Avenue” released their first full length album entitled “Broken Pieces Make The Beautiful Things.” This time at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, they packed the venue with 200 screaming fans for the CD release show, greatly impressing the venue staff and other bands on the bill; including Tango Alpha Tango.
