FOR ALL the fantastic events on Portland's musical calendar, there may be none as joyous, as heartwarming, as straight upfun as School of Rock's annual "Best! of Portland" show. Now in its third year, the concert pairs students from the Portland chapter of School of Rock with members of local bands, sharing the stage for performances of said bands' songs. The exuberance and natural talent of the School of Rock players—all ages eight to 18—coupled with the firepower of the Portland bands on the bill results in a complete knockout of a show. If you're in the slightest bit serious about local music, it's an unmissable event.
