Lost Gospel: Loch Lomond at Canterbury Castle

Whoo! Our 5th Lost Gospel show is upon us, just in time to kick off the summer season. This Sunday, June 7th will be a special one! Though it's been in the news quite a bit lately, many Rose City residents are unaware that we've had a magical castle in our midst. Sitting atop a hill near the zoo on Canterbury Lane is Canterbury Castle, a real live actual castle with two red doors and a lot of stories (both literal and figurative :). Sadly the castle - which has stood there since around 1930 - is in the process of being torn down. So this Sunday, we'll be giving it its storybook ending!

We will meet at the Washington Park tennis courts. At 1:30pm we will then depart to the castle. Don't be late for this very important date! Just as Hansel and Gretel had a trail of bread crumbs, we'll have a path of arrows to follow as we ascend - all while being read a fairytale!

At 2pm after we arrive, local sextet Loch Lomond will perform a lush acoustic set at the castle ruins to give the castle the send-off it deserves.

Come be a part of the magic! Invite and bring any and all!

Wanna find out more about Canterbury Castle's backstory and its former owners? Please read here.

You can walk, bike, bus or drive to Washington Park.

Ways to reach Washington Park by bus:
The tennis courts are accessible by Trimet - either by taking the 63 directly there or taking the 20 and getting off at MacLeay, then walking up the hill on the SW side of Burnside.

Feeling charitable? How about donating! There are a lot of costs associated with Lost Gospel, from the generator to props, flier production and video equipment rental. The cost of a generator ranges from $34-$65 depending on the size of the band and how many instruments. For the White Fang show we had water balloons and sparklers and for Starfucker we had a pool, pool toys and various swimming related accouterments like goggles and beach towels plus chalk for afterward. For all three shows including Almost Nearly we also spent a good deal of time (and change) using the ink and paper at FedEx Kinko's. So anything you can pitch along in our direction will help and go towards the kitty of continued Lost Gospel events. We've got some fun ones up our sleeve for December and in the New Year!

You can donate via paypal through the donate button in this post or via our sidebar or via our email:

If you'd like to sponsor an event by covering all the costs, we'd love you all the more! Still, any little bit helps! Whoo!

Thanks! Stay tuned!

You're Invited!

Wanna be involved with Lost Gospel? Are you in a band that'd like to play a Lost Gospel show? Do you film? Can you record pro sound or want to learn how? Do you take photos and want to shoot with us (we're also a photography collective)? Do you write and want to help out with the paste-up zine? Do you draw and want to help make a collaborative comic where everyone draws a panel of a narrative story? Do you just want to be involved in any capacity?


The idea of Lost Gospel is that everyone is invited! Anyone who wants to be a part of it is. This is about community and forging new connections through collaboration.

Let us know what you'd like to do because we'd like to do it with together.

Shall we sing "Kumbaya?" Maybe not. But let's get together and make things happen!
