I frantically searched about the Brand X tour after seeing it mentioned on wiki. Of course the entire time i am reading Wiki and then your blog im wishing "they have to come to Portland, they have to come to PORTLAND!!!!" I was blown away to read through your post and see that you are in Portland and have a somewhat official source of knowledge. This just made my entire year! Thank you! On a similar note, there is a quarterly meeting of the local prog rock community happening this Saturday in SE.
