It’s raining Men at the Doug Fir tonight



I can’t believe I almost forgot about tonight’s Men show at the Doug Fir (830 E Burnside). Le Tigre fans will recognize the electronic artsy dance fun spearheaded by JD Samson.

Here’s a little snippet from the current J/O Diversion:

Men hits the stage alongside local band BoyJoy. The Brooklyn-based art collective drops tunes that carry its riot grrl roots into an electronic melee of funky disco house and punk that overwhelm the brain with abstract but surprisingly danceable beats.

Group members include JD Samson, Michael O’Neill and Ginger Brooks Takahashi, with contributions from Johanna Fateman and Emily Roysdon. All are deft at making music that is complex, lyrically thoughtful and fun. Coming on the heels of new gay male trio BoyJoy’s sensual steps and rich vocals, your mind and body are likely to combine in an esoteric dance party that just doesn’t stop.

So whether you responds to the rock or the roll, the sound or the spectacle, the cool Doug Fir basement is the place to be during the height of summer.

Accompanied by BoyJoy, aka Seth Gottesdiener, who is a musician and DJ currently exploding all over PDX, this show will be a nice lush musical break in today’s heatwave.

And if all that wasn’t enough, the night is also a video release party for Sugar Shapiro‘s new Hot Tub remix.
