Here’s some of the interesting stuff people are doing in Portland this coming week:


Friday, Nov 24 & Saturday, Nov 25 · 8:00 PM · Revolution Hall

OK Computer is an album that yields infinite creative inspiration, and as such it will be performed in its entirety both nights, but in different ways reflecting the creative choices of the singers and cellists (some pieces instrumental one night and with vocals the other, for example). The album will be contrasted in true Cello Project fashion with a unique assortment of complementary classical music arranged by Cello Project members Diane Chaplin and Kevin Jackson. The ensemble will be huge, including a full band, an orchestral section of world-class cellists, and winds and brass. Tickets $20.

No Vacancy 030 feat. Doorly

Friday, Nov 24 · 10:00 PM · The Whiskey Bar

No Vacancy is taking over the Whiskey Bar for one night to bring you straight from London, the one and only Doorly. Mastering the mix, Doorly utilizes four CDJs & Vinyl plus drum machines, samplers and FX units for his shows, and is firm believer that a DJ set should be a live, bespoke experience. We cannot wait to host him in Portland for the very first time. Local support from Derek Lee Coulter (Driftwood) and more to be announced soon. This is a 21+ show. Tickets $12.54-$15.71.
