On October 5, 2017, more than 1,000 punk rockers descended on Portland City Hall for a once-in-a-lifetime event commemorating legendary Portland band Dead Moon on the first ever DEAD MOON NIGHT.

On that night, under a full harvest moon, Fred and Toody Cole looked on as Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly officially proclaimed October 5 as Dead Moon Night, forever emblazoning city calendars with the mark of the skull and moon.

A live musical celebration of Dead Moon followed, featuring renditions of the band’s songs by many of Portland’s rock ‘n’ roll brethren including Jerry A and Charley Nims of Poison Idea, Chris Newman of Napalm Beach, Sam Henry of the Wipers, Sean Croghan of Crackerbash, Michael Hurley, Marissa Anderson, Ural Thomas and many more.
