January: The Portland Show
Oh, Portland, Oregon. Does no other city inspire such helpless feelings of envy and self-projection from the medium-sized cities of America? Bicycles, coffee, literacy, food trucks, streetcars, indie rock, strip clubs, punk-rock doughnut shops. Did you know Andy's friend moved there after college and got a job as Sleater-Kinney's babysitter? It's true. Your friends moved there after college, too, and have similar stories. You are secretly jealous of them. You've thought of moving there, too. Oh, Portland.
In January, Salon Saloon is going to finally get to the bottom of the Portland mystique. What can the so-called City of Roses teach us about our own medium-sized city? About ourselves? Guests include singer-songwriter and Portland native Chris Koza, former Portlander Sam Gould of the Red 76 artist collective, and TC Sidewalks blogger Bill Lindeke, who took the Empire Builder west this month to take a closer look, and will report his findings. Claire Tiller and Jake Mohan comprise the band. Andy Sturdevant is your host.
This month's guests:
+ Singer-songwriter Chris Koza
+ Twin Cities Sidewalks blogger Bill Lindeke
+ Sam Gould of Red 76 artist collective
And as always: the Salon Saloon house band (Jake Mohan and Claire Tiller), and your host Andy Sturdevant.
