Hey Andre, I can help in Eugene and Portland, maybe even something in here
Corvallis depending on how little you're willing to play for...

Maybe we could do some stuff together, or my band could share a bill with
you. Also, I could put you in touch with some people in Olympia and
Seattle. I'm organizing some gigs for May/June right now, if these work out
I can give you some better/clearer details.
