PORTLAND - An outdoor concert Thursday kicks off a new exhibit at the Oregon Historical Society.

The Dill Pickle Club is throwing the party downtown with The Kingsmen, Pierced Arrows, Quasi and DJ HWY 7.

"We'll ride with Paul Revere & the Raiders, bringing their hard rock and dark "Kicks" to teens across the countryside, while cloaked in comic Revolutionary War garb and Vaudevillian-style slapstick routines," organizers said."We'll stalk the streets of Doomtown with the Wipers and party down with art rock imposters the Dandy Warhols."

Visitors will see Oregon's rock history through famous outfits, instruments, concert posters and souvenirs. MP3 players will also be available.

The exhibit will run through January 15, 2012 at the Oregon History Museum.

Tickets are $7 for OHS members and $10 for non-members on sale through the portlandmercury.com.
