Robin Jackson: Coffeeshop Conversations #124 - Strolling through a drippy afternoon

By TOM D'ANTONI // A new album from the March Fourth, Vagabond Opera member who just finished five years running a musical circus for kids. 

Hello there. Another Coffeeshop Conversation coming to you from OMN via World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan.

In the coffeeshop today is Robin Jackson who you may know from March Fourth, Vagabond Opera, the Joy Now Arts Program (a musical circus for kids) and/or his Songwriter Soiree from which his new album, Dark Stars is most connected.

It is dropping on Saturday, November 11 with a release show at Secret Society. And it’s coming out at the perfect time. It matches the drippy darkness of Autumn in Portland. “Alchemizes Rainy Day Doldrums” is what he says it does. One of the tunes from it follows our conversation.

Let’s find out what’s behind it, and if a revival of Vagabond Opera is possible.

He’s been at the center of some of our most memorable music.
