Reminder: Oct 29 SUICIDE WATCH: Halloween foreplay at the Someday Lounge with local songwriters, filmmakers and poets

From Earlier Post here:

From Karen Page of Polly High Entertainment:

PORTLAND, OR, October 29, 2007 — As the harvest moon sets in over Portland, and scenesters prepare for seasonal depression, a collective of performing artists calling themselves "Suicide Watch" invites you to embrace the darkness over a cocktail at the Someday Lounge on the Monday before Halloween beginning at 9 pm.

SomedayLounge's lush surroundings are the perfect backdrop for this event, which will include disturbing, eerie film footage (on the big screen) from local filmmakers Amanda Kelly, Dan Wegman and Joe Demaree, and a live reading of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell Tale Heart. All of this and four singer-songwriters who aim to make your hearts bleed into your vodka tonic, so maybe just forget the tonic and skip straight to the good stuff.

This year's Suicide Watch Line-up will feature Portland's lovable heart-breakin' icon Michael Dean Damron (I Can Lick Any SOB In The House), and original spoken works by Garett Strickland of Portland's art collaborative, Phase One: words + Music. Also featured will be Polly High vocalist Karen Page and universal time traveler Madame Positron, followed by a headlining performance by musician/visual artist Amanda Kelly, fearless leader of the multimedia experience known as House of Badger.

Expect whiskey drink specials, freshly carved jack-o-lanterns, red velvet and Nosferatu. Someday Lounge has a full food menu and an extensive cocktail lost from which to pick your poison. Bring your sorrows, pull up a leather couch and share in the misery.

A Night of Macabre Performance

    To call Amanda Kelly a film maker is a huge misstatement

    Her lack of talent as a musician is only eclipsed by her boorish and uncreative film efforts

    I was sorely disappointed

    Wow. Jealous? Sounds like it. To state that she lacks talent as a musician shows that you are an idiot!
