Remembering Sam Storicks, an open thread

Sam DJing at Bearracuda

I did not personally know Sam Storicks, the popular Bearracuda DJ was a much loved member of our community. And certainly my heart goes out, especially, to his partner Gregg Kerr in these difficult times following his passing. A close friend, Bennie Tan, posted a heartfelt piece over at Fabulous PDX and I have included some of it here.

Numb. That is what I’m feeling […]

Zombies and bears and dancing…oh my!

Bearracuda returns to Portland Saturday

The beginnings of autumn may have put a slight lull into Portland’s queer nightlife as we all toyed with the idea of staying in, cuddling our snuggies, but I assure you this was a temporary lapse in judgment.

Lions and Tigers and Bearracuda, oh my!

Tonight brings a much beloved night up from the Bay for the bear and cut set. Bearracuda sets up shop tonight at Rotture (315 SE 3rd) and the rumor mill swirls that another bear-friendly night, Blow Pony, may also be moving to the eastside industrial hot spot.
