Good lava

Portland's own intergalactic star, Eperanza Spalding, is trying to start up a musicians' colony in north Portland. She's aiming to raise $300,000 in a GoFundMe to buy the property where the sanctuary would be set up. Chip in $1,000, and contributors will get to attend a one-of-a-kind concert.

Will she reach her goal? Of course she will. And I'll bet it's going to be heck of a place.
