Curve chooses Portland to party

Curve Magazine has discovered that Portland is as cool as we all knew it to be already, and has decided to celebrate their 15 years 12 hours to the north of their offices…all weekend long…there’s so much i don’t know where to begin.

Curvaceous cinema

Begin the weekend by curling up in front of the big but cozy screen at NE Portland’s historica Hollywood Theatre (4122 N.E. Sandy Blvd). Curve teams of with Sensory Perceptions, the folks who put on the annual gay and lesbian film fest here. Several films will be shown ranging from documentaries about lesbians working with Brazilian street kids to humorous takes on polyamoury. 7pm, $5.

Wine and a spin around the floor?

Saturday’s curve invasion will be another team-up with for their 3rd birthday (mere babes in comparison). Should be good grub, free raffle, prizes, goody bags and more. They also urge you to dance, but from what I know of the venue Vitis Enoteca (535 NW 16th at Hoyt), it’s more of a restaurant and it doesn’t appear to have a large amount of space. But hey I like to dance at a club called Porky’s, which is the size of a matchbox, so who am I to judge? 5 bucks cover, 10pm-2am.

Indie All-Stars

Perhaps the most exciting portion of Curve’s weekend will be the all day extravaganza of what Portland does best, independent performance. This time Techodyke’s in on the action. A mellower afternoon performance includes Sara Dougher and some spoken word. The evening busts at the seams with scores of burlesque acts, bands, and drag kings including the increasingly popular hometown lads DKPDX. Better still, it’s a benefit for the Rock’n’roll Camp for girls, which makes it all the sweeter.

For a full schedule visit Both events are at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison), the early show at 3pm, the evening at 8pm.
