Kind of a low turnout tonight but I think the people who came got a pretty rad show. I missed Burnout’s set but I can only assume that they rocked. They usually do. Spare Lead was fun to watch and played pretty well. Their guest MC stole the show when he opened their set with his rendition of Rappers Delight. Good For Nothing was pretty darn cool as well. They sound way different and considerably better than last time we saw them. The only thing that sucks about them is that they make us feel old and slow. Oh wait, we are old and slow compared to them. Anyway, they kicked ass and their drummer rules. Our set was good and lots of fun for us to play. The coolest part of the night for us was the appearance of the 2 guys from Dead Even … again!!! They saw us in Bend on Friday, drove to Eugene to see us play on Saturday and then drove all the way up to Portland to see us tonight. Now, here’s the hardcore part … their car broke down about two miles from the club, so they ran to the club to catch our set. Did you hear that? They ran. Damn, that has got to be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen anyone do for us. Those guys rule! Don’t get me wrong, the girls who made us cookies are pretty high on the cool scale, but these guys broke their car for rock and roll. Thanks to Pine Street for putting on the show despite the low turnout. It’s a welcome change to see a club taking one for the local bands.
