Live from Portland: Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival

It’s currently raining here in Portland, Oregon. Alternately drizzling and full on rain. No matter, the show goes on and we’ll be having fun.

Most of the acts are spread out far enough that I should be able to maneuver between stages easily. However, I do have a bit of a conflict with Trombone Shorty and Cedric Burnside & Lightnin’ Malcolm playing at the same time on different stages. I’ve wanted to see Trombone Shorty’s show for years. I’ve seen Cedric & Malcolm twice and am mesmerized. So the question becomes: what to do? I have a feeling I’ll be splitting my time.

As hard as I’ve been trying to sleep my morning away, I’m far too excited about today’s lineup!
