Drinko de Mayo 2006! The Quickening! [May. 8th, 2006|11:43 am]
Lindsey Kuper
  • We decided to call the band Tryst.
  • Our first show is at 4928 SE 74th, Portland, at 8 p.m. this Saturday, May 13th. Yes, this is my house. Gotta start somewhere.
  • The Jigsaw Gentlemen, Douglas Shepherd, and Chris Corbell will be playing. There's also going to be a belly dancer! I think it might be this person. Probably a couple kegs, too. Suggested donation of $2.
  • AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
  • Indigo indy1725 Kelleigh made a beautiful flyer for us. Larger version later. Flyering tonight. Let me know if you are in Portland and would like to help.

I was going to leave a congratulatory comment and then I realized... I could actually go to this! Internet... real life... universes fusing...!

I will try to do so.

As long as you introduce yourself as "Leigh from the Internet", I probably won't be too confused!

Is it not the cutest thing you've ever seen? Also, it reminds me vaguely of a Decemberists album cover.

Awesome?

Can I show up?

And, do you think be doing some freestyling would be out of place?

"Can I show up?" the boy says. Seriously, if you don't stop asking me for permission to do things which do not require my permission, I might just start saying no. Of course you can show up.

It's iffy about the freestyling, though. I think we were hoping to be done with the PA sooner rather than later, since this is a residential neighborhood and we don't want our neighbors to be mad at us, and it's already going to be difficult squeezing in four bands.

I usually freestyle acapella and unamplified. With some MC bragging, I have to say that I've practiced freestyling a lot, and some people find it rather entertaining. But with realism, I have to say my freestyling (or perhaps just freestyling in general) annoys some people.

I have no doubt of your ability. To be totally honest, though, I think it would be out of place at this particular event. Maybe we can have freestyle/slam poetry night some other time, though!

Yes. Adventures like this are why I'm here.

And now, we attempt to soundproof the living room windows!

I thought that you should know that Tryst was a prog-metal band around the San Fran bay area in the mid-late 80's. Just so you know what sort of reputation you have to live up to. ;)

Hope you are well, and good luck Saturday!

Yeah, that doesn't surprise me. There's also a group in NYC called Tryst. Not to mention a bar band in Michigan.

Can't you just see the Onion "Community Voices" article entitled "I Can't Believe You Stole My Awesome Band Name"?

hey neighbor

I randomly found this posting because I own a new comic book store right down the street from where you live. Our store is at 64th and Foster. But, I live at 78th and Foster. Indy Kelleigh came into our store tonight to pick up some books. After he left, I realized I had forgot to tell him something. I went to his website & saw your flyer on his web page and got excited. I think it's great that you're having a show in our neighborhood! Good luck! I hope no one in the neighborhood freaks or anything!

Re: hey neighbor

Hi there! I know your store, I've been by there a few times and keep meaning to go in. I'll swing by tomorrow afternoon with a flyer for you.
