Elvis has entered the building

For The Ticket this week, I wrote an article about "Bye Bye Birdie" playing at the SCERA Center. Even though it's not a high school production, all the actors are local high school kids. Since they are in class while I'm at the newsroom, I did most of the interviews by email and I wasn't sure how that would turn out. But everyone emailed me back, and I got some great stuff.

The story I tell at the beginning of the article comes from Erin's, Allisyn's and my trip to Washington, D.C., last summer. You can see the letter I quoted here.

My second article was about Rags & Ribbons, another Portland-based band and another band on their way back from SXSW.
