Danny Elfman’s 80s band Oingo Boingo was a huge influence on my composing. I’m finally going to celebrate my appreciation by forming a cover band called “No Spill Blood” for a single set of Oingo Boingo songs on Oct 15th. At the same time, I decided to show my appreciation for Portland’s Ethos Music Center by making the show a fundraiser.
I took it a step further when I emailed Boingo’s longtime bassist John Avila and found out that he was interested in joining us. We moved the show to a date that worked with his calendar, and now we’re in home stretch. Hope all of you Boingo-heads can join me!
