I mentioned The Long Winters last week, part of my post-Coachella CD-buying spree. Remember? Sure you do. I checked their website and they’re playing Portland this month (Thursday 27 May) at The Aladdin Theater, opening for The Decemberists, about whom I have heard nothing.

Oh, and They Might Be Giants will be playing later this summer at The Bite of Oregon. That’ll be fun. (I only mention TMBG because I first saw The Long Winters when they opened for TMBG. My mind connects things like that, for some reason.)
