Good

There was a impromptu gathering of very excellent bands last night in an undisclosed location at an undisclosed time that kept me dancing until about 2:30 last night.  Foam Castles, Soft Pyramids (Boston), Brenda, and The Rattlesnakes played through the wee hours in a dimly lit room and it was the best. show. ever.

Here is a little video that Mike from Brass Cankles took of Brenda playing a new song.  This, and the blurry picture of the room I took with my dinky cell phone above are all you’re going to get!  Click on the band names to hear/learn more.

The Elections That Count – Phoenix Time

Like a mythological winged serpent that rises from the ashes, it’s time to thaw out Portland businesses, institutions and individuals from their winter slumber.  I take it as a personal duty to vote every day (you’re allowed to vote once a day!) for my local favorites.  After all – credit where credit’s due!  That’s an easy mantra.
