Back Fence is coming up this Wednesday and it’s a good one. Former Pipeline editor Meagan Kate is performing. If you saw her at Mortified, you know she is fantastic.
Sarah Mirk from the Mercury is also performing. She does great work over there and it should be quite interesting: Sarah Mirk covers Guantanamo guard & prisoners on a speaking tour in theÃƒâ€š UK
Win Tickets: We have two pairs of tickets to give away. To win, comment on this post on why you would like to attend. Winners will be drawn and emailed Tuesday @ 4PM. Everyone else, buy tickets here. (We also give out free tickets to our Portland Facebook Group every week including to many of the top music and art venues in Portland. Join it if you like free stuff.)
From Back Fence:
On March 24th at The Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan), Back Fence PDX returns with seven storytellers telling 8-10 minute true stories based on the theme LUCKY BASTARDS. Doors/ drinks 6pm, show 7:30.
Storytellers include: The Mercury’s Sarah Mirk; Casino Dealer, Heather Park; Portland actor, Dave Williams; MTV producer and director, Arthur Bradford; Love in the Dumps Chute host, MeaganKate Williams; and Game Show Contestant, Matt Pellagrin. Final storyteller to be announced.
Matt Pellagrin would make for a great story. After growing up on Wheel of Fortune and applying for all the special weeks, including Soap Opera week, Matt finally had a crack at Wheel of Fortune gold. His story involves a fake engagement, a fresh pair of pants, and a far away galaxy. Matt is the manager of the Daily Cafe.
