Portland Meetup proposal: The Harvey Girls (of whom I'm now part!) are playing at Valentines (232 SW Ankeny) Weds. December 6th. 9:30ish. More inside!

It's the Harvey Girls' first show in Portland, and my first show playing with them (on banjo, backup vocals, and maybe some snare drum)!

It's also specklet's birthday, I think!

And we'll have meficomp CDs!

The only tricky bit is that Valentine's is having a bouquet-making class (or something) from 6-8 that night, so if we want to have a pre-show meetup kickoff earlier than 8:30 or so, we'd need to meet somewhere else. Ideas?

And if that timing just completely sucks, other suggestions are welcome. Let's have a meetup, regardless! (But you know you want to see The Harvey Girls in action.)

I'll be out of town :-(

But there's a MetaChat meetup on the 24th that I urge you (and the Harvey Girls) to attend.

That cover of "Sailing On" is really good.

NOTE: PORTLAND, OREGON.

I do wish Portland, OR folks would realize there's another Portland in the country filled with enthusastic MeFites eagerly awaiting a meetup, who get hella-annoyed when we find out (after much digging in the thread) that you're talking about the other side of the fucking country.

Might one suggest that rather than forever eagerly awaiting a meetup you actually have one?

You know, C_D, as a repeat visitor to Portland, ME, even I know that there's no place named Valentines, much less Ankeny St., in that wonderful city. Also, just post a MeFi meetup notice for Portland, ME yourself, you goddamn pussy.

I may end up in South Portland, ME in the next couple of months for a business trip. I'll be sure to keep you posted, C_D.

Man, so much for the Moscow, Idaho meet-up I was planning.

I've been such a pissy grump lately. Sorry for dumping in your thread, cortex.

It is ethically imperative to mention that including dear cortex there are only three of us and we don't have a drummer, so you'll be getting a stripped down acoustic folky experience, not your balls rocked off. If that's not your idea of a good time that is okay, we'll see you some other day (for instance maybe the 24th -- thanks for the heads up, cmonkey).

The Harvey Girls rock by definition, even in silence

NO!

Ok, yes. But not now. Too bleak.

Cortex, if you make it out to Portland (ME) definately let me know. Hopefully there would be more people there than just me, my SO and Jessamyn.

Count me in! It's actually four days after my birthday, but I reeeeealy want to see you guys play!

I propose the pre-gig cocktails are had at Captain Ankeny's Well. It's all of 1/3 of a block away and I believe that Wednesday night is cheap pizza. Post-gig Voodoo Doughnut?

That sounds pretty good to me, togdon.

mmm, voodoo donut

Count me on the RSVP list. I love you for doing this on my day off (contrary to the days off the other 97.48% of Americans have off).

Happy almost birthday Specklet!
