Well, coming off a 12 day weekend things are seeming a little foreign in this strange land. What has gone on this past week of May? A great deal really, in lands both near and far. The festival season has started, the air smells like hotdogs, and already we stare strait ahead at the month of June.
What’s coming up? Glad you asked! Heading west we have Bombadil, a lively bunch by way of the Carolinas. Not only will we be seeing them at Pickathon for the first time, but also they make this pilgrimage for the Great Northwest Music Tour. Boy, have we ever sent these McMenamins folks a nice bunch of artists over the past year, for example the Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, the everybodyfields and now Bombadil. The tour is a fun time which allows you to see several nooks and crannies throughout Oregon and Washington. Hotels are nice, food is alright, and the beer is worth writing home about. And then there is this Bombadil group we speak of, kinda like a musical circus of the Americas. A rollicking live show, a certain degree of chaos, and at times leaning more towards a train-wreck than a concert. But we love it!..and certain you will too. Behold this Bombadil, and check them out at one or many of the upcoming McMenamins shows..they’re free.
