• Ural Thomas has been called Portland’s “pillar of soul.” He’s had a long and storied career and now, at 78, he fronts one of the city’s hottest bands. We talk to Thomas about his career revival and his band’s latest album, out this month. Ural Thomas and The Pain are celebrating the release of their new record “The Right Time,” with an all-ages show Saturday, September 29 at the Aladdin Theater.
