In a show that takes us to Such Great Heights, poet Derrick Brown becomes Nick Cave after drinking his coffee, Portland Trailblazer Robin Lopez passes a "Nerdsketball" quiz with flying colors, and Hook and Anchor send the strains of strings and beautiful harmonies through the air.

Robin Lopez
Robin Lopez is a star center now in his second season with the Trailblazers. A self-professed "giant nerd" who loves comic books, Disney and The Goonies, Lopez claims Portland's quirky culture "fits like a glove."

Derrick Brown
Derrick Brown is an award-winning poet and the creator of Write Bloody Publishing. The New York Times claims his work "will rekindle your faith in the weird, hilarious, shocking, beautiful power of words." We second that.

Hook and Anchor
A Portland-based band that mixes country, folk and rock and roll with a reverence for traditional American music. Their self-titled debut is now out on Woodphone Records / Jealous Butcher.
