Locals Only: Don't miss the new album from Portland's Beth Ditto

June 16, 2017

As the Locals Only guy I am pretty ashamed to say that I was not familiar with Portland's Beth Ditto until I saw her name on the 2017 Summer Camp lineup. Upon diving into her catalog I quickly became a fan.

Then on Friday, in the middle of fantastic new albums from Portugal. The Man, Fleet Foxes and others, here comes Beth Ditto with some straight up FIRE. I dare you to go listen to her songs "In And Out" or "We Could Run" and tell me that voice can't compete with anybody.

Her new album Fake Sugar (this is the only time I've ever been down with the thought of a sugar substitute) is loaded with jams and any of them would sound great on the radio. Just listen to Locals Only this Sunday. I'll prove it.

Grab your Summer Camp tickets and make sure you are there to catch Beth Ditto when she takes the stage. You don't want to miss this.
