Jon: “Magic Johnson” is totally gay…


…on The Penny Jam!

penny2_0797395a2eOne of my favorite queer Portland bands, Magic Johnson, was recently featured on this new video art project called The Penny Jam.

The genious premise of these projects is really inspiring:

The Penny Jam finds a great Portland band and a quintessential (non-venue) Portland location. They then do really high quality, well edited live videos of the band playing there.

That’s it!

This simple idea is so well executed and so, well, Portland. It makes me feel really proud of my city and my music community here.

Check out this awesome video of Magic Johnson playing at everyone in Portland’s favorite “on the cheap” store, The Dollar Scholar. I know, if you aren’t from Portland it is kind of hard to understand how a dollar store could be a Portland hot spot. But if you lived here, it would truelly take you only moments to recognize it in this video.

And then you would smile.
