Wonder Ballroom, Portland - December 28th 2007.
This may have been the oddest show I've ever been to. The whole thing was organized by Ben Barnett aka Kind of Like Spitting, a School of Rock teacher now. Other performers included Ben Gibbard, Hutch Harris (Thermals), Sam Henry (Wipers), Sarah from Unwound, and a dude from the Decemberists. My neighbors, the Shins, cancelled.
