The Reservations, Love Always & Psychic Feline @ Valentines, November 30, 2010
I’m excited about everything that I read in this Facebook invite to the Valentines show tonight! I hate to bum their description, but I’ll have to tell you all about it after the show. Check it out:
One of our favorite favorites, Mark Warren Jacques, has made us a mixtape for the winter months. Check out what he’s been up to here and go see his new work at Together Gallery all through of December.
Movie Madness Monday @ Pix Patisserie, November 29, 2010
Tonight! Watch the totally awesome flick V for Vendetta at Pix Patisserie (the North Portland location). Natalie Portman shaves her head and takes a stand against the man alongside the masked avenger of human rights played by Hugo Weaving (who? oh!). The movie is free and the bits and bevvies that Pix offers its patrons beat the pants off anything at the concession counter at the cineplex
No Age and Lucky Dragons at Holocene, November 28, 2010
OOOOOH NO AGE! I’m actually gonna be out of town for this one, but after you’ve digested that turkey, slept off the hangover from post eating day drinkfests, get your energy together to go a bit wild and noisy with Dean Spunt and Randy Randall. NO AGE!!! Oh man, I’m excited for you.
For Golden Rule’s December show, Aidan Koch will be curating Unnatural. The show will feature works by artists including Mia Nolting, Paul Wagenblast, Shawn Creeden, Israel Lund, Lahaina Alcantara, and Austin English.
I first heard Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside at this years Pickathon. Her voice wails and the band keeps you jumping and I am now of the opinion that whenever you get a chance to see them, do it! Like this opportunity here: they will be playing with Langhorne Slim and Fogatron as part of the monthly children’s variety rock show
Wampire, Billions and Billions and Ghost to Falco @ The Artistery, November 27, 2010
My first visit to the Artistery I was pumped. Funky house, shows in the spacious basement, several crates of records for sale (gems included) and DELICIOUS tacos for $1.50. All this provided by a super rad group of kids (I use kids in a 1950′s beatnik slang kinda way. Aka rad adults without wrinkles). And in rad kid style, they are throwing a super rad fundraiser
I know you’re trying to limit your sugar intake, and I totally respect that — I bet you’re way less edgy, and you’ve stopped seducing young soldiers behind the back of your husband, the king of France. But if you’ve never had the fleur de sel macaron from Pix Pâtisserie, I need you to do yourself a solid and get all Marie Antoinette up in this.
“Grandpa’s Café” AKA Killer Polish Dinner at PLBA, November 26, 2010
PLBA stands for Portland Library Building Association (not what you were expecting hm?), which is home to many Polish gatherings, my favorite of which (well, the only thing I’ve ever gone to) is POLISH DINNER NIGHTS! Every Friday from 5p-9p and Sunday’s from 12p-3p the hall turns into “Grandpa’s Café” where you can get a true to the home country meal, buy polish delicacies for your own cooking (including frozen Borcht!) and according to the website “get the best food in town as well as the latest gossip.”
Sooooo, its like an open house. Except its an open Alpaca Barn. Totes normal right? No need to head to Peru, you can pet the soft darlings, watch yarn being spun from their fuzz, buy warm goods (you need them), and meet some of your local farmer neighbors. So this is technically a bit outside [...]
