While in Portland for personal travels, I stopped by the warehouses of CD Baby, famed online distributor of BCM's Men of Industry CD—it was all in the spirit of catching the thriving internet business vibe. Here's a taste of the scene in the CD Baby mines...

Since I was there, I visited our CD out in their warehouse stacks. There it is, nestled between (the mysterious) BCMFest and the Boston Chamber Music Society...

Today I'm heading back to Loveland, Colorado, for an all-Bonney concert with Peter Toews at Mountain View High School. They're going to premiere my newest piece for drumset and concert band, STICKS & STONES, with Shilo Stroman as the featured drumset soloist. They'll also be performing Courage & Compassion, TranZendental Danse of Joi (with me playing bass guitar), and finishing off with the third movement from Chaos Theory (with me playing electric guitar). The last time I was out there was an amazing trip -- you can read about it by clicking these links:

I'll have my laptop with me, so hopefully I'll be able to blog as I go... I'll keep you posted!
