littlebeast: How do the South and Pacific Northwest differ creatively?
CB: I think it’s hard for me to speak for Portland generally, let alone the Pacific Northwest, but art and music is definitely welcomed and appreciated more so there than the South. I think the South has a much more approachable scene though. Portland has had such a longer history in different subcultures that it takes more effort to get injected into something. I think that the South is not quite as appreciative of the arts and music. Not yet. It’s not completely against it, but it’s harder to find. It’s more concentrated into a handful of cities and demographics. Relatively speaking, there’s a lot more variety in the arts in Portland. There’s much more contemporary art that deals with a wider variety of new media, and there’s a lot more galleries to visit.
