Tis the Season for Surf! Los Straitjackets at Polaris Hall

Los Straitjackets have been blowing our minds with their swingin, south of the border surf for a quarter of a century. This week, the masked men came through Portland OR to rock Polaris Hall. Full gallery plus video below!

Also, for those still looking for last minute Christmas gifts (or those looking to treat themselves), you can pick up this amazing bundle of Los Straitjackets Complete Christmas Songbook plus incredible ornaments from YepRoc here. Dear Santa, I’ve been a very good girl this year….

Check out a video from the band’s show at Polaris Hall below, and check out the entire gallery at the bottom of the page.

Sheena Salazar was raised in a rock n roll household- almost everything cool that she knows she learned from her dad. She spent some time playing organ and bass in bands, but stopped to pursue a career in fashion, both as a model and a designer. Sheena has always been extremely passionate about both music and fashion, particularly from the 60s era. Her enthusiasm for music as well as her connections to music scenes all over the west coast led her to joining the POW team in 2016, writing record reviews and covering shows such as Portland’s Nuggets Night. She currently splits her time between her day job at a bra company, working as a model, and writing for POW. Sheena resides in Portland, OR but she’s constantly traveling all over the west coast, and tries to find record stores, vintage shops and hip live shows wherever she goes. The only thing she digs more than music is her dog, Sue.
