Ended up catching Low Hums, The Body and Earth last night at the Shakedown in Bellingham. I have been wanting to see Earth for a while now.
Low Hums are a 5 piece band that I didn't know before seeing them. They were really really good. It was psychedelic rock with a pretty decent vocalist. They also had a slide guitar and banjo at times which made it even cooler.
The Body was not the same. They were a two piece (drum and guitar) with a large stack of speakers behind the guitarist. It was LOUD. It was FUN. I had a good time.
Earth was an interesting experience. There were signs all over saying please no flash photography for medical reasons. Not sure what person in Earth had the medical problems but the crowd did good in abiding by the rules. I really wish I was high on mushies or pot but I was fresh out of everything. Unfortunately there was a dude that was at least 95% bro behind me for the first half of the set yelling to his friend and I couldn't focus on the show as I would have liked to. He then moved in front of the guy in front of me. He turned to the guy in front of me and yelled "Hey bro, they sound like tool". The guy replied "Cool, shut up turn around and listen." That was my favorite crowd moment.

That is too bad! I hope you are feeling better. How is that venue? Also, I see that Good Old War is opening for Xavier Rudd. I have been trying to see them forever. Are you going to get there for them too?
Good Old War was really good and a lot of fun. Great energy. I was so proud of my little sister when she wanted their CD and t-shirt. What a cool kid.
That is cool! Come Back As Rain is the only album I have heard from them but I really like it. I wish they would be on the Sasquatch! bill. They didn't come to Washington at all in support of Come Back As Rain.

Have fun in Chicago Pea!
It took a while for me to get into lagers because I didn't used to know what a lager is. When I realized that it is the other beer family (ales vs lagers) I figured there has to be a ton out there that I just don't know. Sure enough there are jackpots to be found.
If you are in Oregon someday I highly recommend checking out Heater Allen (Mcminnville). They are a tiny brewery that you would want to email ahead of time to ensure you can get a tasting. They make delicious lager beers.
To be honest, the first lager I got into was Trumer Pils and I am sure you can get that anywhere
