Bummed In Portland

Man I am so bummed Nickel Creek doesnt have any plans to stop by the northwest on their tour this year! I have seen them play in Seattle and Portland and I must say, Portland is by far the best venue to play in! The roseland is a very small theater with almost no seats. The main floor is standing room only and usually you can get right up against the stage (if you get there early enough) It takes a true fan to stand in one spot for over 3 hours but it is well worth it!!! The sound is incredible and the atmosphere is like being in a big Rowdy living room. Plus they usually come out and play on the street afterwards. I really hope they can plan a stop here if they do a fall tour! Any other fans near P-Town???? title=very

They're coming to Redmond, WA on August 11th...to play at the Marymoor Amphitheater. Pretty good venue. Outdoor. Big.

Music and writing are two of my favorite things. And when someone can blend the two to create the phenomenon that is known as a song, it defines genius. Music brings forth an undefinable feeling...an emotion, I suppose. It takes that which is unexplainable and explains it. It turns black and white to color. Something such as this should be attainable, in the sense that I should be able to grasp it, hold onto it, and study it further. Yet, it floats above our heads, teasing us with it's incomprehensible nature. So, when one takes music, blends it with well crafted words, which we in the literary world call lyrics, and plays...the sound and feeling emoted stirs in me an incredible sense of joy, inspiration, and fufillment. I have not yet been able to produce a song, and perhaps I never will be able to, but I'll keep trying. I've written down some words, with a tune in my head...however, if I plan to meld the two together and create anything similar to the writers and musicians that inspire me...I'm going to have to work a lot harder.

Don't worry about it. They come back to town. They love it here and usually hit us up around September.
