Is where it’s happening.

And where you had best be these next two weeks when the fireball goes down and a sliver of moon hangs above NW 23rd.

Take a look at what PICA has done with this year’s THE WORKS in an underused Con-Way warehouse in NW and wonder aloud to everyone you know (especially if they are a city pol) why Portland couldn’t/shouldn’t have a year round venue for contemporary performance and music like this.

It’s our version of St. Ann’s Warehouse. For two weeks. Cool as can be. And hot stuff.

A place like this – not the mall-like TPACFKAPCPA with its Amtrak inspired interior design – is what the city needs to inject some excitement into the local performance scene.

Other bennies: It would cost about 1/20th as much.
