Now Playing

Our friend Chris, turned us on to this local band, The Dimes. Side note, the lead singer lives in Chris' neighborhood. We like them a lot, even though one of them lives in West Vancouver near a friend of ours, and we thought we would share them with you. A local radio station, Kink FM 102, hosts a Noon Tunes Summer concert series. It's a free show put on by Kink in Pioneer Courthouse Square in Downtown Portland. This past Thursday The Dimes were the featured artist, so after swim lessons we grabbed some lunch and headed down to enjoy the show. It was a beautiful day and The Dimes brought a good size crowd to the Square. Here are a few pictures and a short video. Oh, by the way, Johnny is Chris' neighbor. All right, all right, I'll stop telling you all that Johnny is Chris' neighbor. On with the show!!

The free outdoor concerts are always the best. And it looks like you had perfect weather for it. Oh, by the way- doesn't one of the guys in the band live close to a friend of yours??????
