IDA and the end of portland

After the Bones Brigade screening, I went to sleep, planning on departing that next morning. When I awoke on Saturday morning, I checked facebook and found a post from IDA... they will be playing on Sunday evening in Portland!!!!!    This couldn't be better timing!  I failed to stumble onto a show when I was in there area of New York so hearing about this single show in Portland truly made my year. They played a show in Chicago in mid OCT and I toyed with the idea of flying out to it.... I hurried and made a little flyer to post around and soon found out that the show was FREE.

the flyer I made for the show

Got a surprise to see Daniel's brother on drums

Storey joined the band for a family sing along
Michael played guitar on a few songs

and on SHRUG, Michael's wife took on the role of the bass via a guitar
I was so blessed to be able to see them again... Before the show they set out a piece of paper and circulated it around the restaurant taking requests... They ended up playing loads of my favorites and even tried to play a rare track that I requested called Truxton Park. thanks Daniel! 
Some other friends were playing at a venue across the river, so I took off as IDA broke down for the evening.

I missed the GOAT by about an hour... But I saw Shane & Kevin out front

Waters helped me get in to see Cat Power
and more importantly, I got to see Curt Power before I headed out to Eugene
AND NOW for some photos from earlier on Sat & Sun..... Let's take a trip back in time....
