A great hippie town about 2 hours south of Portland. An events listing as impressive as a major city, a surplus of great bars, live shows, and friendly people.
Among a few other shows.. I went to see Philly’s Phunkestra, who was in town from Portland. An eight piece funk, jazz, jam ensemble, dressed in snappy black and red outfits. A fabulous show, only five dollahs!
Then while everyone else in the party world was starting to drink beer for St. Patty’s day.. I jumped on an over night train to Sacramento. Amtrak is an equally expensive way to celebrate the holiday. And instead of a hangover.. I woke up with a new city to explore.
I’m now California’d. More to come..
