From Leigh Feldman:
Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

Free ish… two tickets to the Flaming Lips (tonight!), Papa Grows Funk (Friday), Eyedea and Abilities (Sunday), UFC at the Rose Garden next weekend (!!!) and four passes to see Inglorious Basterds anytime on Saturday. Wanna win any of them? Tell me why you should and we'll be picking winners at 5pm today! (From Pipeline: These tickets are only available to people on Liegh's email list, not through us).

Free music ish… a new mix from KPSU 'Liquid Beat' Host and Rockbox DJ Mr. Matt Nelkin. It's big on the hip hop dance and perfect for the sunshine. http://sharebee.com/f8c19437

More awesome ish … I'll be a co-host on the ‘Sex and Dating Show' on KPSU this Sunday morning from 10-11am. Don't worry. You can sleep in and download the podcast. With all the fun stuff this weekend I don't expect you to be awake at that hour.

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.

See you all out and about! Leigh Feldman

    Any more info on this Miss Delta gathering thing?

    Because, and I’m not being cocky, nobody deserves them more than me. I’m a huge fan of the LIPS, dropped the ball on this show and my doctor said I shouldn’t go to bed mad.
