I had great fun at the Beat Poets Festival PDX Edition Sunday, September 6. It was my first time performing with a band and they were terrific. And that with only one rehearsal. Thanks to everyone who made this show possible, including a shoutout to Camille Perry who did all the work of organizing us. https://www.facebook.com/events/1620812828194791/.
