Fire and Forests Road Show Report Back

I was at the Oxygen Collectives (from Ashland) Fire and Forests Road Show tonight at PSU. It was so fucking amazing! I dont want to give too much away, because they are going to be at Reed tomorrow night... But, when I got upstaris I was greeted by some stiltwalkers giving me some literature, a long table with a ton of information and wonderful people (including good friends that I hadnt seen in awhile :)

Then, all of a sudden, the room went dark and a folk singer who wasnt supposed to be on the bill, got up and played a song about the Biscuit Fire. He said his name was Ryan. It was a really moving song and I enjoyed it.
