Stranger article on Portland/Seattle

There is an interesting article over at The Stranger about Portland being "Seattle's Hottest 'Hood." It presents the opinion that Seattle's rising rents and cost of living have pushed a lot of musicians, who need to rely on part-time income, to move to Portland.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

I agree definately. Well I dont know much about Portland, but Seattle seems to be its sister city. If prices are getting too high (and they are) Portland would be the best choice. That or Vancouver, but passports are expensive.

I'm of the opinion that Portland has a better music scene than Seattle because of that very situation. It's too expensive for musicians to live in Seattle now.
