Late Night Drums

I'm hearing some serious drumming up here in North Portland. Sounds like it's pretty far (about 20-30 blocks away) from Alberta and Albina to the east. I'm guessing that it's maybe TCHKUNG! getting done at the medicine hat. It sounds really powerful and kinda energizing- I was just laying down in bed when I heard them. I'm kinda waiting to hear the cops but the drums keep kickin and it sounds like there's some chanting too. Shook me out of my dreariness into a weird awareness. Sounds like the kinda thing that's going to go on all night (hopefully!).
