Sam Adams Portland Rally Pictures And Video: Storm Large, Dan Savage

This was near the beginning, and there are many more pictures from the rally on the PDX Pipeline flickr set including Dan Savage and Storm Large.



Video of Dan Savage’s Speech and Storm Large leads the crowd in song.

This is nearly the complete video of Dan Savage’s speech last night. I think I missed the first 10 seconds. Anyway, it is probably NSFW and he gives a bit of the smack-down to the media pubs in town that have asked Sam Adams to resign (or told him to?).

Storm Large sang a couple songs at the rally. Matt Davis of the Mercury has a good breakdown of the event. In this video, Storm sings “Stand By Your Sam” and leads the crowd in the final verse. Also rather NSFW. If Sam has to step down, can Storm Large be our mayor?

Also, the camera that Storm grabs at the end to send a message to Sam is from Amy Ruiz. It looked like she was getting much better video than I due to her far superior camera, so…Amy, can we see it?

*Thanks to for brightening these up a bit to see the crowd.

**Update: Pete Forsyth sent this over to us: an open letter to the media, re: Sam Adams. In case you were wondering (you were not), we are not opinion media…our opinion is simply “More events and more free passes to said events”

If you have pictures or video from the rally, add it to the PDX Pipeline Flickr Group
