The Variants are the queer rock band you never knew you needed.

A five piece rock outfit with wild ideas on gender and social justice such as "People are people, whatever" and "Stop being a dick".

We are a motley group of misfits featuring a trans front woman, a punk rocker bassist, a proto hipster guitarist, a classically trained violinist, and an inexplicable drummer.

Whoopee! is a live stage show produced and hosted by sex educator and comedic storyteller Amory Jane. It is a two hour show with a variety of acts from some of Portland’s most talented performers, and the theme is that all acts are sex-positive, body-positive, and/or about human sexuality. For more info visit facebook.com/sexvarietypdx/

We are excited to announce that KJ Luke will be joining us after the show for a late night Kinky Karaoke party! What is Kinky Karaoke? Well, it is a lot like regular karaoke, except for that before you sing your song, you have the option to spin a wheel. Some of the slots will give you free prizes, but other slots will ask you to sing your song while getting tied up, spanked, or having other fun and naughty things done to you by our team of sex educators and performers. It'll be one part karaoke, one part kink demo, and 100% entertaining. 

 

In addition to getting you admission to the variety show and the karaoke after party, tickets to Whoopee also include a small gift from our sponsors & a free sex toy raffle with prizes from She Bop, Uberlube, and Clone-A-Willy! Talk about bang for your buck!

In an ongoing series of collaborations with artists of various non-musical disciplines, and based on the life and works of Gideon Barstow, Myrrh Larsen asks in On A March In The Snow, "what is real, what is fantasy, and what is fate?"

Through interpreting the found journals and letters of Gideon Barstow, Myrrh explores Gideon's strange descent into visions and possibly madness through a seven song cycle. Inspired by the parallels to Myrrh's own work in Gideon's haunting original pieces and creative adaptations, Myrrh presents songs found in Gideon's journals alongside new original work of his own to weave together the ill-fated love story between Gideon and a strange, otherworldly creature.

In this piece of fact and fiction, Myrrh explores what it means to love something or someone who, by their nature, cannot possibly love you back, and blurs the line between the faerie realm and our own.

Offering audiences an immersive multimedia story framed by the more familiar trappings of a rock concert, On A March In The Snow expands the definition of what can be experienced in a club setting, inviting the audience into a world that tears down the walls between fantasy and reality, between seeing a show and becoming a part of it.

Performers: Portland based goth-rocker Myrrh Larsen and contortionist, aerial performer, and Sinferno regular Meg Russell.

As one of the original members of the seminal '90s rap crew the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah (aka Tony Starks) made an impact before he released his debut album, Ironman, late in 1996. Like all members of the Wu-Tang Clan, the rapper used the group as a launching pad for a solo career, which was assisted greatly by other members of the Clan, particularly producer RZA. Ghostface Killah had rapped on Wu-Tang's 1993 debut, Enter the Wu-Tang, but he didn't distinguish himself until 1995, when he was showcased on fellow Wu member Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Ghostface received good reviews for his appearance on the record, and his contribution to the soundtracks for Sunset Park and Don't Be a Menace to South Central While You're Drinking Your Juice in the Hood were also well-received. All of these guest appearances and soundtrack contributions set the stage for Ghostface Killah's solo debut, Ironman, in late 1996. Like all Wu-Tang projects, it was produced by RZA and was quite successful in the large hip-hop/rap underground, debuting at number two on the pop charts upon its release. Ironman was also the first album to be released on Razor Sharp Records, RZA's record label on Epic Records.

Work with the Wu-Tang and their various members kept Ghostface Killah busy until solo singles started appearing at the end of 1999, followed by his sophomore full-length, Supreme Clientele, in early 2000. Supreme Clientele was a success, but it was followed a year later by Bulletproof Wallets, an album that didn't sell well and had fans declaring the Ironman had gone soft. Once again it was back to the Wu for a couple years before the rapper would be appearing solo again. Epic issued the compilation Shaolin's Finest in April of 2003, and by the end of the year two new Ghostface tracks had appeared on mixtapes: the chaotic "Run" with Jadakiss and the more commercial "Tush" with Missy Elliott raised the anticipation for the rapper's first album for Def Jam and his first under the simpler moniker Ghostface. The Pretty Toney Album hit the streets in April of 2004. The Top Ten hit Fishscale, along with More Fish, followed in 2006, but not before 718 -- an album from his Theodore Unit.

Always prolific, the rapper put out The Big Doe Rehab -- whose release date had originally coincided with Wu-Tang's long-awaited fifth full-length, 8 Diagrams, which RZA agreed to push back a week so as to not coincide with Ghost's effort -- in early December 2007. Ghostface returned in 2008 with a pair of compilations: The Wallabee Champ (rarities and B-sides) and GhostDeini the Great (including remixes, alternate versions, and career highlights). Influenced by R&B and focused on the ladies, his 2009 album, Ghostdini the Wizard of Poetry, was a significant departure. The more traditional effort, Apollo Kids, landed in 2010 with special guests Redman, Busta Rhymes, and the Game...

The CURATOR for this event is THE THESIS (Mac Smiff, Blake Hickman, VERBZ)

Blossom - The bud who is Blossom began with her roots in Trinidad & Tibego. Born into a musically inclined family, she embraced the stage naturally at the age of 12 alongside her uncle's traveling steel drum band. Upon moving to Portland (where she currently resides), she has developed herself into a rather unique songstress. Her first stint as a backup singer in 2011, for a local R&B artist, led her to writing songs of her own to express her artistic individuality. Blossom's neo-soul voice and meaningful lyrics quickly found her an ever-growing liking among Portland's underground hip-hop scene. After making her debut into the industry in the winter of 2014 with her first solo project, an EP called, "Eclectic Garden," - a series of local show appearances followed. Blossom continuously aspires to create music that stirs the soul and is currently at work writing and performing with a band of live musicians to share her world lyrically with others.

If we're honest, the true weight of any band or artist is chiefly determined by how they translate to us in a live performance setting. Can they breach that intangible border between the stage and the gathered onlookers? Can they slip in like a steady rising state of inebriation, stealing our attention, controlling our emotions and ultimately drawing us into their world? Does their energy continue to vibrate within us well after the last chords have been played and our daily life comes to reclaim us? These are probably some of the questions one writer from Rolling Stone Magazine had running through his head before he proclaimed The Statesboro Revue as one of the highlights of the 2009 South by Southwest Conference and Festival. The Statesboro Revue goes back to 2008, but the evolving vision of front man and primary songwriter Stewart Mann goes back much further. It's a journey down many roads from Texas to Tennessee to California and back, all in a search for that perfect, unspoiled place for his music to grow roots. Year after year in city after city, it became clear that those roots had taken hold on stage and from there grew into a groove oriented, old school rock and roll band, the likes of which have not been seen in quite some time.

Reminiscent of singers from decades past, Stewart Mann's soulful voice is both evident and familiar. His seasoned timbre is well- worn, but polished enough to have landed him the starring role in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story that opened at the historic Cameo Theatre in San Antonio, Texas last year. Joining Stewart is younger brother Garrett Mann, the lead guitar player who holds down the fort then lets loose when the song calls for it. On bass guitar is Musicians Institute alumnus Ben Bradshaw, providing backbone and foundation, all while mixing in melodic leads and runs that only a player of his experience can muster. Drummer Kris Schoen's ability to both drive the tunes and lay down a lazy snare for the slow groove furthers the dancing frenzy that ensues at a Statesboro Revue show. The all-star list of shared stages more than hints that this all-inclusive working band is truly worth their weight. The Statesboro Revue has played with the Los Lonely Boys, The Wailers, the Allman Brothers Band, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Whiskey Myers, Dirty River Boys, Willie Nelson, Charlie Robison, Ryan Bingham, Reckless Kelly, Turnpike Troubadours, Randy Rogers Band, Bob Schneider, War, Arrested Development, Eli Young Band, Marshall Tucker Band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Will Hoge.
