Nuggets Night started in 2007 in response to the tragic house fire that destroyed the home of legendary garage rock icon Question Mark (of ? & the Mysterians). Portland’s music community banded together, raising funds to help him get back on his feet. Since then, each year Nuggets Night has identified a musician-focused nonprofit to ensure music arts have the funding needed to continue.
