I'm just returning from a four day trip to Green River, Utah for a Summer Summit with CUAC director Adam Bateman where I played at an alien themed party with Rob Loucks (DJ Orographic) of Bridge Club in Portland, met a lot of talented architects, artists and community activists.

Great performance, and only their second show! Try and catch them sometime. Follow and watch more of their videos here.
