A Daydream is a series of pleasant thoughts, distracting one’s attention from the present. From time to time, we all need a break, a rest or a Daydream. Doernbecher and Timberline have teamed up to bring you an inspiring, supportive, hope filled distraction, a day-of-days on Mt. Hood.
Join us Saturday, September 2, 2023, for Timberline Daydream, a celebration of music, brews, and bikes at historic Timberline Lodge benefiting
OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
The Timberline ethos prioritizes not only Mt. Hood stewardship and a high level of social responsibility, but positivity and support of each other. Through authentic relationships and interests, Doernbecher and Timberline realized their core values are aligned for the greater good, for supporting hope. It is through these beliefs that Daydream was born.

Over the past decade, Portugal. The Man has established themselves as one of rock’s most prized possessions and a live phenomenon, with over 1,600 shows under their belts and a storied reputation as festival favorites.
Originally heralding from Alaska, the Portland-based band soared to new heights in 2017 with the release of their now RIAA certified-Platinum album, Woodstock. The album was marked by the astounding success of their infectious single, “Feel It Still,” which earned the group a plethora of new accolades – including a GRAMMY for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” a 7x RIAA Platinum certification, a record setting 20-week residency at #1 on alternative radio, and an inescapable presence on the Top 40 airwaves.
Alongside the shine of their myriad of musical accomplishments lies the group’s long-standing passion for social justice. In fact, this is precisely the intersection in which Portugal. The Man thrives; throughout their career, the band has consistently exemplified how to deeply commit to both artistry and activism. This ultimately inspired them to officially launch PTM Foundation in 2020, focused on universal issues related to human rights, community health, and the environment, with an emphasis on causes directly impacting Indigenous Peoples, including Alaska Native Health (providing the highest quality of health services for Alaska Native people) and Seeding Sovereignty (radicalizing and disrupting colonized spaces through land, body, food sovereignty work and more).
Portugal. The Man have also partnered with an array of organizations such as National Coalition Against Censorship, The Skatepark Project (helping communities build public skate parks for youth in underserved communities), March for Our Lives (Gun Reform), Keep Oregon Well (Mental Health), and Protect Our Winters (Climate Change), to name just a few. In 2022, the band furthered their passion for activism when they launched PTM’s NIGHT OUT initiative – supporting disabled fans requiring ADA access.
The Get Ahead is a band on a mission to move you. With a gritty and soulful roots aesthetic carried by dynamic vocal harmonies and compelling lyricism, this 5-piece group from Portland, Oregon is a tightly knit cadre of emotional intensity. In 2019, on the heels of their EP, Mind is a Mountain (produced by Grammy Award winner, Son Little), The Get Ahead released their full-length record, Deepest Light, a bold statement on the celebration of life, healing, and the importance of keeping open hearts. In support of the album, the band shared their vibrant and joyful chemistry with audiences across the NW and performed on nationally syndicated, Live Wire Radio. The band was also invited to showcase in Nashville's AmericanaFest, and their song Deepest Light was featured on NPR Music's Station Breaks: The Best New Songs from NPR Stations.

The Fur Coats are a psychedelic pop/soul sextet based in Portland, Oregon. Co-fronted by married couple Chris Karl Hoganson and Betty Downey (who together also form the concept-pop duo ROOM), their all-star lineup includes current and former members of Reptaliens, Charlie Hilton, The Gossip, Shoplifting, and a litany of other Portland rock & roll barnstormers. Theirs is an extremely tight-knit collective — at their inception, most of them lived together in a haunted mansion in North Portland's Portsmouth neighborhood (several still keep an address there, and they continue to use its basement as band headquarters) — and that intense closeness is clear in both their writing and performance.
An explosion of color and sound onstage, The Fur Coats have built a large and devoted following at home and abroad since their inception early in the 2010s. They've made a regular practice in recent years of quick tears up and down the west coast, and have embarked on multiple European tours since the spring of 2017.
