WEINLAND + Laura Gibson + Oregon Ballet = You?

Hey Ya’ll,

Seriously.. last night show at The Aladdin, here in Portland, was unreal. When one of the principle dancers from The Oregon Ballet contacted me a few months ago about doing a show together I was sort of back on my heels a little bit… what would that be like? how much work would it be? would we still be able to play the way we play? All that “hey I’m an artist, but not in a the traditional sense.. but more in the hey lets let it all out sense!” kinda stuff. Would it be one of the coolest things we’ve ever done, or would it be awkward?… Honestly I knew it would be rad from the beginning.. but when you take on a collaboration like this.. there is some risk involved.

Dear Friends, Family, + Lovers,

Holy poop balls – We have so much exciting news!!! From shows with amazing groups like The Decemberists, Bonnie Prince Billy, and The Oregon Ballet to a new “by state” newsletter and a ridiculously simple, but totally up-to-date website/blog!! Crappers!! That’s all BIG NEWS!

We’ll break this down to make it a bit easier to get through…

THIS WEEK: We’ve got three free shows at the amazing Grand Lodge in Forest Grove, Oregon (Wed, Thur, Fri).  Yesterday I received a call from the Forest Grove Times newspaper literally asking me why we were playing these small free shows when we have so many big shows, with big bands, coming up… my answer?  Because its gonna be a crazy good time!  You should come.. hotel rooms aren’t too spendy.. They have complimentary robes that you’re allowed to wear to the show.. and Justin Power and mBilly join on Thursday and Friday respectively.  Music from 6pm to 9pm all three nights..

SOCIAL: Be our Friend! We love chatting with our peeps.. so stay in touch and be in the know by “fanning” us on Facebook.. We’re going to start giving away free tickets, t-shirts, etc.. but you gotta fan to participate.
