Mahmoud Ahmed @ TA Event Center, January 1, 2011
If by chance you’re the type of person that either a. doesn’t go out on New Year’s Eve, or b. can handle tons of fun two nights in a row, then this is for you. January 1st the Godfather of Ethiopian music, Mahmoud Ahmed, is playing in Portland thanks to Sengatera Restaurant (3833 NE MLK) owner Yilma.
ms.ms. asked our favorite bartenders their favorite places for drinks (and we had a few along the way).
Perfect. Have a slow wake up. Brunch. Make some resolutions. Maybe a hike to get refreshed? Maybe the snooze button x 100? Then at 3:30p begins THE NEW YEAR’S DAY GRINDHOUSE MOVIE MARATHON!
The first time I saw Brian Mumford’s Dragging an Ox Through Water, I was astounded. What I experienced was a wall of sound filled with holes and through these holes came beats that moved my body, strings that told a story and a voice that made me want to cry.
