Given the fact that we are still looking at the 2008 website, and that no newsletters have gone out thus far to alert folks of the lineup and ticket specials.. I would like to offer out a few ideas for entertainment in an around Portland, OR…while we wait. We are seeming to be pretty close to having things wrapped up, but not close enough for me to give you an exact date for when tickets will be on sale…. I have tried that in the past… But hey, there are only 4 of us here, and boy does it get busy this time of year.
Here are a few ideas, and some really great bands that have our attention this Winter.
Get out and see some music!

Tuesday the 27th – Cave Singers w/ Department of Eagles (Doug Fir Lounge)

…I know that there are more shows going on than listed above, but at least wanted to give some direction while we wait for the new website. Of course, I imagine things will be up and running prior to V-Day. We can wait, right?
