  3. Re: Prince 2008! Who was there? Share your memory.

    Before that show, Prince was a funky guy who made some good tunes but who had been basically irrelevant to me since the early 90's.

    Re: Do Lab Predictions

    Thomas Jack is in Portland on Thursday 4/14. Usually acts in Portland on the Thursday before Coachella play on Sunday, maybe Saturday. I figure he's pretty close to a lock to be back in the DoLab.
