In the basement of a garden-variety two-story house in Southeast, magic is happening. Midwestern transplants Louie Herr and Aaron Colter have spent the bulk of the past four years cultivating an idea: capture and bottle up the Portland house show experience, and give it away for free (or donation). They invite bands and friends to their now-secret shows to participate in the gleaning. There might not always be money in this Banana Stand, but the magic and the music is there in a big way.
