...last night that Dave Chappelle was going to do a secret show at Pioneer Square at midnight. I'm not clear on the details about how this rumor got started, but I got 2 texts about it from friends and headed down there where I found a huge crowd of 10,000 or so people who had gotten the same message. We waited for about 45 minutes to see if Chappelle was going to show up, but the tug of the day job won over and we went home. Sometime around 1am, Chappelle made good on the rumor and donned the stage with a tiny practice amp and a mic. Even though I left and wouldn't have been able to hear anyways, participating in this strange collective hysteria was worth going staying up for. Portland gone wild!
