We took off on Tuesday and stayed the first night with Maia's family in Medford, Oregon. On Wednesday night we played at the Red and Black Cafe in Portland, where I got to connect with some old friends and make some new ones. I was really glad to get to play with Brenna Sahatjian again, and opener Christopher Buckingham of the Eventuals reminded me of The Mountain Goats, but more laid back.
In Eugene we hung out with my friend Rachel Sanders of The Dirty Dandelions. She showed up around Maitrea, the eco-village where she lives. Check it out!
