I met Colin Meloy!!!
Oh, and by the way, I had to add that I spotted Colin Meloy, yes, of The Decemberists, in the food line at Kruger Farms where our beer bus is parked. Too shy to approach him myself, I sent my friend Paige over to ask if it really was him. There were three of us watching as he shook his head "No" - we all sighed loudly. And then Paige came back and said that yes, it really was him. He came over, took a picture with me and I gave him a free beer because musicians ALWAYS get a free pint. Especially Colin. What a cool guy.
What was even cooler was that he came back and bought a growler of the Wit! Cheers to you, Colin - thanks for the wonderful music and for letting me post this truly excellent picture of us in front of the bus.
Gotta love the Northwest. You just gotta.
