I'd like to do a solo set. I don't think BSS will play unless at least me and Ken and Glennny are all confirmed, and preferably Erin too. I might forgo my solo set if Erin comes, and do Merisan in place of my set. Maybe just put Lunkhead, Merisan, AND BSS all on the poster just in case? ;) We'll sort things out and let you know.

I may or may not be bringing Mr. Ranger Den. He will certainly not be joining me on stage though, so it's not relevant for this thread (although he did help in one of my GOMs once) :)

So this date is locked in?

I know, I'm really sorry! Almost no bars in Portland will allow minors in the evening. It's a very stupid rule. No one is a fan of the OLCC.

I will double-check with the Jade Lounge -- it's possible the under 21 set is allowed there. The place that's likely to win the Saturday night slot is all-ages until 9:00, which means we could aim to book you earlier in the evening if that be the place.
