Sadly, the first bass player didn't work out. Really nice kid, but he really should be back on guitar playing classic rock. The bass player in our family is at UO music school, and at this point is not interested in playing progressive metal (though he supports little bro all the way). They have a new guy to play bass, but again, he is not primarily a "bass player" so we'll see how this goes. Tomorrow night they'll play at The Waste Land in Salem, Oregon, sans bass while this guy learns the songs.

Here are videos I took of the Sisyphean Conscience performance on Saturday, January 22, 2011, Dallas Oregon Grange Hall. I love old Grange halls, don't you? Most small towns across Oregon still have usable Grange halls equipped with kitchens and they are inexpensive to rent. The young man putting on this concert provided food for the bands, which was cool because the venue was a bit out of town. I love how these all-ages shows start at 5:00 PM. We were back in Portland well before midnight.
