Stumptown and Beyond

May 26, 2010

Dear Northwest:

Some important informations to pass your way.  We are heading up to the Northwest for Rainfest and a show in Portland and couldn’t be more excited.  We’ll have a new shirt (!) a new song to play (!) and plenty of swagger.  We are purportedly playing on Sunday night near the end of the entire festival.  Our show in Portland got all mucked up by my inability to consult a calendar so the new place/date/etc. of the matter is thus:

Monday May 31
Portland, Oregon @ Adam’s House
6524 NE Garfield
w/ End of a Year and The Carrier and others

Glory be to Aaron for finagling the entire affair.  We will be in Portland all day and plan on hefty amounts of Powell’s, Los Gorditos, and sitting in the sunshine.  If you’d like to hangout, it shouldn’t be hard to find us.

In other, more personal news, I’d like to point you in the direction of this article on education reform in America.  While you’re at it, this video on California’s three strikes law is interesting as well.  (I spend most of my Sunday afternoons reading the NY Times book review, travel section, and magazine at my sister’s house as babies cry for more cookies.)  And, as an added challenge, I dare you to beat  my score (4260) on Word Bubbles.

See you soon,

    Hey Al!

    Thanks for your entry. It was a great way to kick off our site. Danielle and I are really excited about this and are both so glad you participated. Once I read your entry I knew we were doing something right!
