This seemed like such a great spot that I returned one short week later to see if it was just beginner’s luck, or really the kind of place that I could reliably return to. I’d say it was more of the latter, as once again people generally seemed happy I was there. (Although I do wonder if anyone in Portland would actually verbalize their displeasure.)
I installed a few motion-activated LED lamps to give my backpack drum set a little more visual appeal. Maybe it’s too gimmicky, though–I don’t want to diminish the songs as mere vehicles for a light show. What do you think?
It’s still pretty warm out, so I’m looking forward to cooler, shorter days, when I can get started a little earlier and maybe…play longer?
