For those in town early for SearchFest 2013 or tonight’s SEMpdx Members only mixer – I have a SearchFest related insider tip.
Pete is one of all too many Portland musicians that face major medical challenges, with no safety net. Tonight at the Wonder Ballroom is a benefit for Pete sponsored by The Jeremy Wilson Foundation. The JWF is a grassroots non-profit making a difference supporting those that lay down the soundtrack for life in Portland and Portland’s growing influence.
The Rock For Pete line-up is rife with members of the Decemberists, features Jeremy’s Dharma Bums, as well as some of my favorites – Casey Neill, Lewi Longmire, James Low.
The show is scheduled from 5:30 to 12:30. Plenty of music left after the mixer.
