Yep, I've lived in Oregon since 2000 and they haven't been here the whole time. Last time I caught them was in Kansas 6/30/99, after easily 50+ shows attended between '91 and '99. Oh sure there's The Gorge, 6 hours away from anything, but WTF is wrong with playing Portland or Seattle once in awhile- you know, for the devout fans who can't drop everything to hop on tour?
