Portland’s new project, Rose Tinted, is the hip hop project you didn’t know you needed. Rose Tinted have a residency at Holocene all through this winter at the start of 2022! The group is dedicated to producing a live boom-bap sound, chopping up classic hip hop joints while adding their own instrumental breaks and organic improvisation. Combining the musicianship of their drum and bass pocket with live sampling and scratching adds all the best ingredients to a D.J. set. And the band consists of four of PDX’s finest musicians in their respective craft. The lineup includes MLTZR on electronics (Korgy and Bass), Celly on turntables (2018 and 2019 IDA USA Scratch Champion, Skratcher Portland), Kirk Kalbfleisch on drums (D.V.R., Coco Columbia, World’s Finest, Reva Devito), and Sam Arnold on bass (D.V.R., Korgy and Bass, Quickly Quickly, Mae.Sun, Greaterkind). If you are a beat head or hip hop fan, there’s no better place than Holocene to tap into the beat music scene in PDX and check out this exciting new project. 

MusicPortland Bridge has partnered with Holocene and these local artists to support a Musician Grant Fund for Portland-area artists. $1 of each ticket will directly support this fund and this show will be promoted as part of the city-wide, Portland Music Month – Find out more at

Vaccine Policy

In our continued efforts to keep our community safe, and in response to the omicron variant, we have updated our COVID policy. Beginning January 6, 2022, Holocene will require customers to show proof they have received their COVID19 vaccination booster shot, if they are eligible to receive one. 

If they are eligible for the booster, but have not yet received theirs, they can instead provide a professionally-administered negative COVID test for entry, taken within 24 hours of show door time. 

If they are vaccinated but ineligible for their booster, (2nd shot of Moderna or Pfizer received less than 6 months ago, or Johnson & Johnson less than 2 months ago) then proof of that vaccination will suffice at the door.

For those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, we can allow a professionally administered negative COVID test, taken within 24 hours of show door time. However, this requires advance permission from venue staff – please contact if this applies to you.

We continue to require masks at all times indoors when not actively drinking or eating, in accordance with the state of Oregon mandate.

If you have any issues with this policy, you can request a refund up to 14 days prior to the event by reaching out to
