Reading Frenzy ~ An Independent Press Emporium

Superstar Open Mic!

May 07, 2008: Join us this Friday, May 9th, 8PM when members of Portland's vibrant music scene will escape their bands to do 15-20 minute solo sets, offering them and their fans a chance to experience a different side of their music.

The escapees include Brandon Summers (The Helio Sequence), Jeremy Wilson (Dharma Bums/Pilot), Nann Allemann (Spigot), Sam Coomes (Quasi), Sarah Dougher, Jennifer Lynn, Leigh Marble, Carson McWhirter (Hella/The Advantage), and Tara Jane Oneil. Next door at Backspace we'll also be presenting an all-ages show with Hutch and Kathy of The Thermals, Iretsu and Ghost to Falco.

The admission price of $10 gets you into both shows and proceeds benefit the IPRC! Tickets available through the IPRC, Reading Frenzy (cash only) or on-line at
