5/31/96	  Portland, OR        Rose Garden Arena     Opening for Alanis Morisette
(Autographed CD Sleeve). From: Tiger

I saw Imperial Drag open for Alanis Morissette tonight. It was the first show of the tour and the first big crowd they've played for. It was also a really great show. More than half of the house was there early to catch the boys (pretty good for an opening act) and crowd reaction was quite positive.

I was lucky enough to meet them (briefly) in a nearby restaurant -- a local radio station was having a pre-show party. Imperial Drag came by for about 5 minutes and did a short on-air interview. I jumped in there as quick as I could to say "hello" and get my copy of the new CD autographed (shown in photo). FYI, the sleeve is from a promotional CD that I got from the radio station I work for. The signatures are (clockwise from top): Eric Skodis, Eric Dover, Joseph Karnes & Roger Joseph Manning, Jr.

During the interview, Roger said that they were playing all new material on this tour. There was only one song I didn't recognize -- everything else was from the album. Oh yeah, I thought that the chick who played later was pretty good, too.

  1. Zodiac Sign
