One of my favorite Northwest’s
One of my favorite Northwest’s. Pouring rain, interspersed by quick, squinting-bright sun beams. The kind of Autumn Weather that leaves trees naked.. Last time Publish the Quest headed down the coast, is was to do a quartet of shows, mostly in and around San Fran. The old silver van that I bought on Craig’s list was left in Placerville as a casualty of the short and bitter sweet tour.. Cliche. A disas-tour that somehow makes a band tighten (in a good way).
A book I once read about the Pacific Crest Trail, referred to the short-lived blasts of powerful sun that the Northwest offers this time of year, as sucker holes. If you are not familiar with this season at the top of the west coast, then you will be tricked into stripping your thermal and Gortex layers as the sun heats your blood, just in time to put everything back on again as the rain slaps you sideways, and soaks your shoes through to your socks.. “Sucker!” The author yells at herself, time and time again.
ZigZag Oregon tonight… The Skyway Bar.
Thanks to everyone who helped make our latest kickstarter project a go!
