OMG GUYS! September is going to be awesome. One week prior to partying/performing with some of my all-time favorite artists at the Don Giovanni Records sponsored New Alternative Music Festival, I’ll be heading to Portland as a guest of the 2016 XOXO Festival. What is XOXO, you might ask? Well according to the organizers it’s “an experimental festival, shared workspace, and online community for independent artists and creators working online.” Judging by the guest list this year (which includes the folks behind Feminist Frequency and Homestar Runner), this is going to be one hell of a transformative experience for me. If you plan to go, you have until the 18th to register so what are you waiting for? And if you’re not there, but live in Portland, I’d love to set up a show while I’m there. Let’s make that happen, no?
