Thanks to everyone for the great tips in the comments of yesterday’s Portland post. We’re going to try and hit those places. Last night we ended up hanging out downtown. We had dinner at Voleur - amazing mac and cheese, highly recommended. Then we hit a great little place called Bo’s for Martinis. We ended up at a really cool bar where a wall hit me above my eye opening up a nice little gash and drawing blood; I’m an idiot. In my defense the wall hit me unprovoked; I was pretty much minding my own business. Unfortunately none of us could remember the name of it this morning. The middle picture above is the DJ at the place, if anyone recognizes it speak up in the comments.
Please excuse the picture quality, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I neglected to bring my camera so I’m using my friend’s point and shoot Canon. I actually enjoy using it, at the expense of quality of course. It’s just nice for a change to not be lugging some 10 lb. chunk of metal around everywhere.
In Portland right now and of course didn’t bring my camera again. This place is always great; we hung out in one of my favorite spots today, the Pearl District. It’s a great little neighborhood which really reminds me of Midtown Sacramento and Wicker Park in Chicago. I’ve got my friend’s little point and shoot so I will try and snag some shots here and there. Trying to figure out where to go tomorrow night, heard good things about hollocene, any suggestions?

My friend and yours, Dusty Brown, recently covered Elliott Smith’s "Can’t Make a Sound" for a tribute album and it turned out incredible, dare I say, better than the original. You be the judge, have a listen below.

Available on the album Hope You’re Happy
Incidentally, the last two images above are of the wall in Los Angeles that was used by photographer Autumn de Wilde as the backdrop for the Figure 8 album cover. Since Smith’s death it has become a sort of memorial for fans.
