I’d like to let you know about an upcoming show for a special cause. Back in July of this year, I started helping out with a small, volunteer-run operation to help distribute food to the homeless called The Friday Feed. It was started by two friends, Alexis Smay and Jeff Tuyay, in the midst of Portland’s ongoing housing crisis. It’s a small operation, but with the financial and volunteer help of friends we’ve been able to provide food to many people as well as water and clean, dry socks and other supplies. Alexis has also used this group to coordinate winter clothing donations to other local groups such as the Hazelnut Grove community and Right 2 Dream Too.
This Sunday, November 13th at The Waypost (3120 N Williams), I’ll be playing a benefit show for this project along with revered local comedian and songwriter, Lucia Fasano, and the enchanting acoustic duo Bevelers. I’m really excited about this line-up as well as raising funds to continue distributing food and supplies to those in need! The show starts at 7PM, is 21+ and there’s a $5 cover.

Here’s a fantastic video of Bevelers performing at The Banana Stand:
