The tree lighting in portland was peared with Linda Hornbuckle singer then leading carol singing of all gathered in the square. I then saw Sidestar out at Rock Creek. They are pretty good. I then got a fire in my pants and wanted to go to the Bitter End and see Scraff. Turns out that they performed at 8:30 so I missed them. Chatted with them while listening to Fractal. Headed over to Poor Richards to see another band and check out the venue as the Scraff Trance Trio is playing tomorrow there. Had a great night of popping all over town.
