Hi Chris! Some readers may want to be aware that Seattle’s KEXP [mentioned by our reader yesterday] has an excellent podcast, Music That Matters, which is available on all the major podcasting apps. I’d also like to nominate a Track of the Day from Seattle’s neighbor, Portland: A Million Shards by Pseudosix. A mesmerizing song that never got any attention that I have really liked for years. The band is no more but has has sort of morphed into Ages and Ages. I hope all is well with you.

It will be this coming weekend, when I’m out in Portland visiting family for two weeks and hoping to catch some live music. Bummer I just missed Kinski, an old favorite, but maybe I’ll take my mother to see Snoop Dogg, as one does. If any Portlanders have some good suggestions, drop me an email.
