Pride countdown begins with the weekdays

Rai Villanueva will help kick off Pride with Thursday's gay ass Diesel party

Recently added events starred like so*

Truthfully, I think I’ve been putting off the Pride 2010 calendar because there’s do damn much to do that I’m overwhelmed. So let’s take this piece by piece. First, there’s plenty to do before we even get to the weekend. Workin’ stiffs, of which I now be one, gird your […]

One on one with DJ Party Martyr

I join Jen K. aka Party Martyr at Random Order Coffeehouse. Jen joins me after a long morning in a Chinook trailer van parked at the Portsmouth Pizza parkinglot. It’s a balmy afternoon on Alberta street right before the bustling last thursday event begins. Over the squealing of espresso machines and roar of hungry pie goers we sat at the bar and I got to ask Jen K. a couple […]

More Gloss, more Fame

By now you already know that hump day is a lot more happenin’ than it used to be. Whether drinking and dancing will help you make it through the week or hinder your productivity, enjoying the midweek pleasures has become a queer necessity.

Guest DJ Yo’Malley will be spinnin’ 80’s, new wave and pop, uptown with some gay pizza slices at Fame (5262 N Lombard), but the bigger bash will […]

Tartdown and other Wednesday night happenings

DJ Automaton at the decks

Wednesdays are often quite a full hump day with the weekly Fame/Gay Pizza/Slice, and monthlies Lube Job and Gloss. But tonight also features a special mix of 2 of Holocene’s (1001 SE Morrison) dykiest nights. Tonight’s Tartdown is a celebration of Double Down and Tart as well as a going away party of sorts.

Wednesday night happenings

What else is there to say about reletive newcomer Gloss? It’s the best ladies lounge night around, some of the best drink specials in town, and ambience abounds. This week’s party will feature the Red Hot Soulful sounds of DJ Nolita of Fruitcake and DJ Shannon Wizbang of Olympia fame. Plenty of dark corners to get lost in and really feel the music, if you know what I mean.

Getting down at Portsmouth Pizza

It’s on a Wednesday and it is way the hell out there. These aspects of a new queer dance night that popped up in North Portland lead me to think it might not rise to the ranks of a truly popular queer destination. But then again, 4 or 5 years ago a little night called Booty opened up all the way up in what was then the middle of nowhere, […]
