The Microshow - July 10, 2002, Portland, OR
An amazing show happened in north Portland. Over 30 bands played - for one minute each. Tons of people showed up, all smashed into a small, hot basement. I recorded the first 27 bands, and some other sounds. I found that I got pretty good recordings of some bands from outside, crouching down by the one window to the basement that could be opened. In this way I could avoid the moshing. Moshing with a minidisc recorder is not a good idea.
Anyway, it was a benefit for the Portland Zine Symposium, and it was a great time. Below are photos and mp3s. I hope I matched all the band names up correctly. If not, let me know, please.
