Ah dang, what a bumout! There's still plenty of cool shows goin on in the near future, i'm +1 for a decent amount of shows here and there, maybe you'd like to be my +1 sometime? I was actually +1 for All Time Low late last year, but decided not to go because of the tween crowd and I had nobody to pal around with then otherwise. Maybe you'd like to Trimet around town a bit one day when i'm in town and go see new places that neither of us have been before? Because to be totally honest, i'm only slightly familiar with the 5th/6th Ave. area around Satyricon and the Hawthorne District.

Powell's is a pretty cool place, i've been there once before a show, it's such a huge place.

and yeah, i'm not even bummed about LC, I wouldn't have been able to afford it anyways, i'm finally able to start my freshman year this fall because this is the year that I wont be denied financial aid because of my parents income.

Did it rain really good today in Portland? It just hammered all day down here! Stoked I found my sweatpants finally!

Yeah it turns out they're in LA while I'm in Portland by a few days, and then shortly after I fly back to LA they're playing in Portland. The gods must be mocking me somewhere. It just seems too meticulously planned.

It's entirely possible for me to get lost within Powell's for extended periods of time, I gotta say. I usually just end up exploring the city with friends, though. I doubt I'll even have it fully covered by the end of the schoolyear, haha. And thanks for the compliment. :) Don't feel too bad about LC. They rejected several of my best friends who were just as qualified as anyone in our student body, so to me they're just kind of selective douches.

Haha, I felt sooo lame after being denied by L&C, they went 0-12 the year I applied :p. Coheed hits the Roseland on May 7th. I'm not too sure what my show going schedule is for now, I mean, i'm going to try and make it out to New Found Glory, Jonny Craig, and Four Year Strong. Definitely will be at ADTR/ABR/Silverstein in April.

What are your favorite places in Portland?

Your pretty cute, you must be turning guys down left and right, huh?

L&C's average is definitely not 4.0, believe me, haha. But it isn't particularly sports-driven as much as academic, so I can see why it'd be hard to get into their program - it looks selective. And yes I have, actually, just once. But I couldn't get in, because after five you need to be over 21, as the bar opens up. I might go back one day over the weekend.

Definitely go see Copeland. I'll actually be flying home just before their Portland show, but then they're coming to LA, so I'll luckily get to catch the tour. I don't think there are many shows within the next month I plan on going to, but if Coheed and Circa start touring and wind up here before I'm home, I can't miss it.

Not being soaked in rain obviously, but it sprinkled a bit, that was pretty neat. Portland tends to be a bit more extreme as far as rain is concerned. I saw you go to Lewis and Clark, you must be super smart; I was being looked at for Football by L&C, but then they saw my GPA wasn't a 4.0 and I didnt have more than 1 AP class and they just stopped talking to me, haha.

I see you like Video Games, have you ever been to Ground Kontrol on 5th and Couch? I love that place. Are you going to any shows soon? I'm considering seeing Copeland next month, i'm not a massive fan, but ya know, last tour ever.
