Amanda Bullock & Chip Miller

There is so much adventuring this week! First I talk to Amanda Bullock from The Portland Book Festival. Their big day is on November 9th,  and you will not want to miss it, there is fun for everyone. Then I chat with Chip Miller who directs the world premiere of Redwood by Brittany K. Allen at Portland Center Stage at The Armory; a play about gone wrong, with dancing, DNA and dark truths.

Peter Frajola is The Oregon Symphony's Associate Concertmaster, and here, we get to enjoy a private concert and chat with one of our favorite violinists!

All Aboard The Mystery Ship! Portland Spirit’s Masquerade Party with Heartbeat Silent Disco will be a floating dance party like no other. Listen here and find out where else to dance in Portland as the unparalleled DJ Jo TAKIMBA shines a light on music as a DJ and host of KBOO’s The Melting Pot.

Do you know about The Low Bar Chorale? It's a twice-a-month extravaganza that transforms a local bar into a drop-in alt/indie sing-along backed by a live band of rotating musicians from Blind Pilot to Brandi Carlisle’s band, and no one cares what you sound like.

Meet Creative Director/Producer Kate Sokoloff!

Stephanie Schneiderman is a brilliant singer songwriter, and she is currently at work on a new musical. Here's another podcast from Mississippi Street Fair with a live performance. September 15th don't miss Stephanie Schneiderman at The Old Church.

Don Horn and Kevin Loomis talk about the world premiere of That's No Lady! at Triangle Productions, a new musical chronicling the fantastic life of Portland's own Darcelle. Chances are you know Darcelle, also known as Walter Cole. Donnie has been working on telling the story of this man, who at the age of 37 became a drag sensation before it was ‘popular’. “How did a man put on a dress, sell a ticket, and stay in business for over 50 years? He’s been in business longer than Starbucks!” Kevin plays Darcelle in the show,
with book and original song (with lyrics) by donnie, and additional lyrics and music by Tom Grant, Marv/Rindy Ross, Jon Quesenberry, Storm Large, Rody Ortega, Wesley Bowers. This will be a thrilling world premiere at triangle productions!

At the Mississippi Street fair I met up with the brilliant directors Jennifer Lin and Rebecca Lingafelter, both of whom are directing at Third Rail Rep this season. Third Rep wants to provoke dialogue, encourage empathy, and inspire curiosity; this fascinating interview sets the table!
