i don't know. ratdog was a band for 15 years and played 16 shows in washington state. furthur is a band that has been playing for 2.5 and been here once.
There's no problem with Washington, there's just nowhere to go from there that's fiscally responsible with the price of Diesel.
Just ask Vermont.
Ahhhhhh - Portland, Colimbia, Spokane, Eugene, Salem, Missoula, Boise, Salt Lake City, Wyoming, etc, etc, etc.. The Dead did it in 2004. They strung together a great NW tour:
Phoenix, Chula Vista, Irvine, Shoreline, Marysville, Salt Lake City, Boise, Portland, The Gorge(Wa.)
Why can't they do that again!?!?!?!
