Video of the Day

The Shortwave Stall from Jeffrey Bowers on Vimeo.

Last weekend David Lightbourne died in his sleep. He's featured in this video starting at about 1:10. David was a musician and a musicologist and a cultural historian and a sweet, warm, passionate soul. I've spent many an evening sitting in a booth at the Buckhorn Bar listening to David tell stories of the old days and expound on his theories about music and culture and art and politics. He was a one-of-a-kind sort of guy, and this town will never be the same without him.

You can read more about him here and here.

And here, for your viewing pleasure, is David with the Metropolitan Jug Band, back in the day:

    Makes me homesick for Portland - exactly the kinda place to give birth to a group like the Metropolitan Jug Band.
