"Don't Quit Your Day Job" Features Reporter's Michael aka Mr. Potato Head

"Don't Quit Your Day Job" Features Reporter's Michael aka Mr. Potato Head

Into the Woods TV has unleashed yet another awesome Portland-based insider anomaly with the first episode in their series "Don't Quit Your Day Job." The series goes behind the scenes into the working week of PDX rockers and rollers in a candid, often hilarious overview of their careers offstage.

The first episode was uploaded today, and features Mike from ambient-poppers Reporter and his uber-popular Potato Champion french fry cart, located on SE 12th and Hawthorne - one of many fantastic late-night wheeled eateries on the corner.

Also be sure to check out the additional video series' being produced by the guys from Into the Woods, including the site's namesake, which documents bands playing intimate performances (where else?) in the woods; "Learning Curve," which are tech-y tutorials led by various Portland musicians; or "Feels Like Home," a series documenting bands playing in their own homes.

And if you haven't been to Potato Champion yet, you're doing it wrong.
