Hope Rides Alone into PDX September 1, 2010 12:23 PM   Subscribe

Impromptu Meetup? MetaFilter Approved rock opera-ers The Protomen performing a last-minute-announced show in Portland.

Enough PDX fans to warrant a meetup? I'd hate to be the only person there spazzing out like the Jim Steinman obsessed fan of theatrical rock and the spectacle of The Protomen's live show, but I fear there are few 21+ fans of the band in the area. I hope to be proven wrong.

I could be wrong, but I think all proposed meetups are going in IRL now.

Where they fester, unconfirmed.

Both meetups you linked to were confirmed within 7 days of the post being opened. Seems OK to me.

I'm on the wrong coast for a PDX meetup, but I'd just like to agree that the Protomen are fucking awesome.

There's also a non-MeFi meetup brewing that you could crash.

Jesus, that was posted not 5 minutes ago.. How quickly the internet works on gathering people at the last second.. From Twitter to MetaFilter in less then 5.

I don't know how last-minute this really is, as I've had tickets to it for a couple weeks. Their email list mentioned it a while back.

I'm going, by the way - not wasting the tickets!

I'm on the wrong continent. Have fun for me.

Argh. Protomen are awesome, and they're finally on the West Coast in range. Then it turns out to be an age-locked venue. A shame. Bring out the army for me.
