    @east end [May 03, 2014] » Noticed the RF7 show after I "cancelled" this one, though I was told this morning it would still be at East End. I dunno if they're letting us jump on the bill (seems unlikely given the number of bands on the RF7 show) or it's being moved to a new venue. Will post an update when I get the info. ¤

    show-bot! @east end [May 03, 2014] » you can *reschedule* shows by picking a new date (you don't have to cancel ;) . ¤ Is this supposed to be happening at EastEnd still? The RF7 show is on sat and that should be a fair draw that i wouldn't expect to get bumped.

    Carol Elischer I believe we spoke about you DJing a 2/ 15/14 event for The Living Room, a nonprofit serving LGBTQQ kids in Clackamas County. The date was changed to 4/19/14, and I am wondering if you are still available and willing to act as DJ for this event. Also, we wonder if you want to DJ for our alternative prom on April 26. Please call me at 541 521-4194 to let me know ASAP. Thanks, Carol
