Take Five: missing a jazz-great, podcasting with pdx-great Arya Imig

It was over five years ago that i met the poppa of the Portland scene, Arya Imig. It was at a show, of course, in the dmug basement that sparked it. Since then, i think we've done some cool things together. One of my favorites is this podcast from the fall of 2007. And by we've done together i mean, he did the podcast and all of the work, i didn't do much beyond axe'ing him if he wanted to do it.

The podcast was called take five - the concept being Arya plays five songs: you fucking love it. Well, the man behind the Take Five namesake, jazz-great Dave Brubeck, walked on (died) yesterday, a day short of his 92 birthday. This prompted a call from portland-great Arya on topic of the old podcast episodes.

Well, *with* further adoo-doo, we're bringing it back. Take an adventure with the "indie-pop superstar" as he introduces us to awesomeness such as 'Black Joe, Motherfucker', Starfucker and so many other rad artists that would go on to soundtrack Target commercials. Hopefully this will be a delightful surprise for the host who no longer has these copies, and hopefully you'll enjoy it too!

Birdy @st johns (the whole neighborhood) [Sep 06, 2014] » OK, NoFest says it's an all ages event, but every show listed here as part of No Fest is 21+. Where and what are the all ages shows? Are there any all ages shows at NoFest? If there are any all ages shows, why is it so hard to find details about them.

show-bot! *I am* the shoutbox (fthe) police and i wish everyone in the world would stop making comparisons to Nazis. 'Fascist' sure but Nazi comparisons are tangential and oft inappropriate + out of line. Much so that it lessens the horror of the real actions of the Nazis. ¤ That aside, 'Rose' is a spam bot so i left the commentary as we aren't strong armed fascists and fuck spam-bots. ¤ Everybody remember though: this is a SAFE SPACE!
-8/14/2014 1:16:32 PM
To ROSE: Anyway, are you the shoutbox police or what's your problem, Nazi! Let me be and fuck off.
