Just a short one today. I wanted to show off the great venue at Maryhill Winery on the southern Washington shore of the Columbia River Gorge.

Arno took me to see Counting Crows, and I was delighted to hear, belatedly, that The Wallflowers were opening. I love the music of both groups. Yes, it does indeed date me. So be it. 🙂

The average age of the crowd was easily 40, and it reminded me that I’m aging. But who cares when the point is to Live! and have a lovely day of it. Thank you Counting Crows and Wallflowers for being so good that you can still draw thousands of people to a remote grassy lawn in the middle of nowhere on a perfect summer night…

The Wallflowers on stage. Jakob, does it bother you that I can't help but think of your dad when you sing certain songs?
