Artsy Goings On

Dioscuri Part II from David Klein on Vimeo.

At the Woods, the folks behind the documentary podcast series Destination DIY present an evening of music and skill sharing—the event promises "live demonstrations and interviews about how to make radio, how to make a terrarium and how to make bacon," as well as a silent auction that'll include the terrarium built in the demo. Plus, music from Leviathian, and music/animations from billygoat , who created the animation above, and will be explaining their process tonight. That's tonight at 8 pm, $10-20.

Local "dark fiction" publisher Underland Press hosts a party at the Press Club for author Jeff VanderMeer, and his new novel Finch—in addition to VanderMeer, Underland rounds out a predictably weird roster with Jeff Johnson (author of Tattoo Machine, a great read about his time working in Portland tattoo parlor the Sea Tramp), sci-fi/fantasy author Jay Lake, and Fantasy Magazine co-editor Cat Rambo. Whew. That starts at 5:30 pm tonight—VanderMeer's also doing an ol' fashioned reading tomorrow at 4 pm at the Cedar Hills Powell's (which has mellowed out of its big-box newness into a really great store, FWIW).

Hand2Mouth officially debuts their current show Everyone Who Looks Like You tonight, after a typically long workshopping & revising period (it had a short run last spring). The Big O's got a brief preview right here—I'll have a review next week. Theater! Theatre, 8 pm tonight-Sun, $15.

Hot Little Hands opens Ill-Starred, a new dance performance that, if the production photos on their website can trusted, should be awfully pretty. That's at 7:30 tonght-Sat at the IFCC, $12-15. Tune in next week for a writeup of that as well.

More performance listings are here, readings info is here, and visual arts listings are right here.
