Folklife music feastival in Seattle, 4 days of free folk music. May 23-26, Seattle Center

Website :

Blackbird Raum and Dapper Cadaver at the Red & Black cafe, benifit for the Blackrose Collective. May 18th 7:00 PM.

Blackbird Raum is one of my favorites! Good anarcho-gypsy-folk-punkish (or whatever you call it) jugband!

Website :

Oh also, if anyone happens to be in the area there's 2 benifit shows in Eugene this weekend at the Campbell Club & Lorax .. Friday is the Water Tower String Band at the Campbell Club (benifit for something about buffalo) and Saturday is Samba Ja, Madame Flodd and Brenna Sahatjian (I always spell her name wrong) from Riot Folk, an "abolish all borders" show.

Heading to the show in Portland on the way to Olympia and eventually Seattle for the Folklife festival.. both should be kick ass.

If anyone in Portland, Olympia or Seattle wants to meet up send me a PM and I'll give you my cell number.

Oh yeah, hopefully going to make it up to Benji's place in Bellingham to help out with some squat cleaning!

Blackbird Raum is playing with the Hail Seizures in Olympia; I think it's on monday.
Wish I was around for all these shows...if only I wouldn't have sprained my ankle.

I wouldn't mind maybe meeting up at Folk Life and hanging out, maybe getting some tips from you on catching out to Portland.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Last post, but, is it bad that I sometimes inhale rubbing alcohol fumes to relieve tension?

Cause every now and then I'll like, inhale a bit, and then I feel it hit me in my brain, and I just feel, perked up and less stressed.

lol it's a terrible idea, I know.
