Jeez Louise were playing near the entrance to Lithia Park a few days ago. They were on their way back from gigs in Austin, Texas to their home in Eugene, Oregon. As the sign indicates on the guitar case, they describe their unique sound as "nasty swing".

Yesterday, the Ashland High School boys' soccer team hosted Summit High of Bend in an opening round of the state playoffs. The Grizzlies ended up losing to the visitors, 2 to 1, bringing their season to an end sooner than they'd hoped. Coach Brad Roupp, as is his style, refused to dwell on the negative and emphasized instead how proud he was of his boys and what they'd accomplished this year.

Jesse Biesanz was in Lithia Park the other day demonstrating his skills as a master Frisbee juggler. He's able to keep 4 (or is it 5?) of the plastic discs airborne at a time. Jesse has been the subject of this blog on an earlier occasion describing his artistry as a stonemason. He also teaches classes in the meditative art of rock stacking.
