As the rain starts in it seems a lot of times that club season starts up. Like my youth in Minnesota, when you can't be outside, ya best be in the basement or the garage making noise. Or lapping up noise in some form.
When Elliot Smith's double disc posthumous 'New Moon' came out I think it was like 85 and sunny, so I didn't get to disc 2 actually until this past weekend. Perfect, of course.
Coming up this week is the first ever Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductions and awards at the Roseland.
Everyone from the Kingsmen, Paul Revere and the Raiders to Quarterflash and Everclear.
A special shout out for remembering DEAD MOON - the GREATEST offering Oregon has ever made to the world.
There's also an auction for Oregon music education. Tix are only $25 and you needn't be a musician to attend.
