basically–if you were wondering what was happening in the oh-so-wonderful music industry in the past few years, you could seriously just go to this show and see what’s up. With that being said, I’d love to pretend that I can afford to go to this but in all honesty, I can’t. AND–the show is at the Gorge. From what I have heard it is beautiful area where camping tents and marijuana are rampantly seen. Nice.
