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|
