Most of last week’s events were around Lents, and this week the fun moves north.
There’s a group art show at Milepost 5 tonight hosted by Madisyn DelPorto. The description from the Facebook invitation:
“This will be a party for the FDJ (FunkyDeathtime Jamz) book release!
AND a Collaborative Exhibit that will include all types of cacophony and performance ♥
~The exhibit will collect the bittersweetness of turmoil & triumph– and weave them together into a loose, non-linear narrative~
This will be my first show in Portland. I will be performing some of my comics, music with PolymerWitch, and (!!!) Emma Wilson AKA Ladyprince– will be coming all the way from SLC to share an interactive performance.
If you’re lucky, she will also get your booties Shakin’ to some fucky-Deathtime jamzz!!
Come see the work, admire some trash, and buy some merch– with a bunch of friendly queers, artist-nerds and other folk! ✨”
