Soft Kill, The Delirians, Soul Shakedown w/ DJ Clifton, Sexy Unique Podcast Live
|You know what they say: wake me up when September ends. Well friends we’re rolling out our giant gong and summoning the roosters to issue a morning call that October arrives this coming Monday. Dust off your broom, harvest some pumpkins, because the witchiest month of all is right around the corner!
Tonight Portland band Soft Kill has a special residency on our stage with In Mirrors and Warm Hands. We’ve been eagerly awaiting this day for months, so don’t miss out on the excitement. If you need an anthem to get you through your work day we recommend blasting, “Trying Not to Die,” and following up with the show.
You blink and then the weekend is here — praise be! The Delirians are taking over our stage this Friday night with a healthy dose of Ska & Reggae to get you movin’ and groovin’. Your Saturday night is made better by our friend DJ Clifton spinning an all-vinyl soul set at your favorite party, Soul Shakedown! Bring your dancing shoes and show us what you’ve got!
Stacked in between these two late night festivities are the final performances of rock show meets musical, Lizzie. We flash back to the 1892 murder involving Lizzie Borden and are greeted with, “a mix of period wear, leather outfits, blistering punk-influenced songs, dance and, uh, axes.” Don’t miss this winning combination plus the all-star female cast that brings this historical true crime storytelling meets rock concert to life! Your last opportunity to join in this raucous event is on Friday or Saturday at 8 pm.
October brings us good fortune as we have a very exciting, fantastically LA presentation returning to our stage….you know it as Sexy Unique Podcast Live, the podcast solely dedicated to discussing all things Vanderpump Rules. Host Lara Marie Schoenhals is back with Carey O’Donnell to serve up some deep takes on all the Sur happenings, plus we’ll have DJ DedeBird spinning your dream soundtrack. Feel free to start your binge in advance with some new episodes and prepare to raise your glass.
In the spirit of a new month knocking on our door, here’s the latest fall rundown.
