We are deeply disturbed by the police actions that have been taking place, where non violent protests have been and continue to be met with extremely aggressive tactics including; being shot with water canons in below freezing temperatures, chemical weapons, rubber bullets, and attack dogs.
These are the same inhumane methods used during WWII and the Civil Rights Movement.
Here’s the list of shows at The Gorge dating back to 1997…1997: Rush, 8 p.m. The Moody Blues with the World Festival Orchestra, 8 p.m.
July 20 (.65, children under 12 free with an adult).
The Jam Base Live lineup is nearly complete, and the roster of bands that have already confirmed are incredibly excited to play The Gorge. “The Lilith Fair: A Celebration of Women in Music”: Sarah Mc Lachlan, Tracy Chapman, Jewel, Paula Cole, Suzanna Vega.

I’m back to not doing what I’m supposed to be doing, and just doing what comes up.
I’m sure the person wasn’t important enough to dislike anyway. Two years is a long time in nightlife, and they should be congratulated, I think. I was all busy getting APL, that joint we designed on Orchard Street, absolutely completely finished as it really will have some sort of opening tonight.
Several of the repeat performers will return to play The Gorge after as long as a decade. ZZ Top and George Thorogood & the Destroyers, 7 p.m.

The protests at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline construction continue, as thousands of people — including Veterans Stand for Standing Rock, a group of 2,000 U. military veterans who arrived in North Dakota to protect the Standing Rock Sioux and their allies from police force — remain opposed to the potentially water safety-threatening crude oil pipeline.
Dozens of celebrities including Katy Perry, Jane Fonda and rapper Vic Mensa, who joined the protest this week, have shown their support, and now singer-songwriter Kate Nash has urged President Obama to act against the DAPL in an open letter signed by over 100 fellow musicians including Sia, Paramore’s Hayley Williams, Jo Jo and Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong.
