The 411, Yo!


Concerts | Culture | Portland Living

Yume has been killing it on the Portland scene since 1985, but he decided to bring his particular brand of Portland affectation (and love of third-person writing) to the masses in 2012. Since then, PretentiousPDX has offered a tongue-in-cheek perspective on music, popular culture and life in the Hipster Capital of the World, especially Portland’s thriving dining and cocktail scene.

Check back on the regular for new content – humorous essays, product reviews and recommendations – all delivered to you from beautiful Portland, Oregon. Read more about our team here.

In addition writing for the fount of wisdom that is PretentiousPDX, Yume is a recovering music blogger, having spent over year writing “Thoughts From Last Night,” 94/7 KRNK’s live music blog. As a freelancer, his writing has also been featured in The Portland Mercury and on websites such as Thought Catalog and Localeur.
