I know, I know... we're looking at rain tomorrow and probably Wednesday too... but I have faith in patterns, and the Portland Pattern is sun sun sun as of the beginning of July. We'll see if it holds true again this year, but the current forecast sure looks like it's shaping up that way. In a few weeks, we won't even be able to buy rain around here. And I'll probably be the only one who'll miss it.
Langhorne Slim is a local Portland artist and I can't say enough good things about his work. If you live in Multnomah county, you'll find lots of his music at the library. He's on iTunes too. I highly recommend his self titled CD, or the album that followed, 2010's "Be Set Free." It's really excellent stuff! Everybody tends to say that just about every artist is great live. It's downright cliche... but I'll say it anyway. I saw him play live with nothing but a guitar and he was astounding.
