First I was in some public park in Oregon and the Roots were giving a free show. The show was great but short. I encouraged everyone to encore them after they were done but the band was tiered and then the cops said it was too late.
I ended up talking to BlackThought (who I was calling Darius, which is not his real name) for a little while after the show.
Next I was at a big venue in Portland which happened to be owned by the grandmother of some family friends from Bloomington (Elliot, Dan, Cara). She gave me back stage passes when I introduced myself. It was an outdoor venue with a big stage. Sort of like Hornings Hideout but different. I was in the general back stage which was sorta under the stage and behind it, with no view of the stage at all. Right at the show was about to start I saw Jen Levi talking to someone official looking and then she started following him. Then others started following and I saw they were going toward the stage, so I followed. We went onto the stage past security and ended up in a viewing area on the back of the stage. An Ka was back there too. I woke up just as the show was about to start.
