This is the last weekend of PCC’s African Film Festival!
Don Carlos, a former member of Black Uhuru, keeps reggae’s torch burning… This first video is an example of Carlos’ solo work, the second features him with California’s Groundation. Dubvision Band and Ras Binghi and the 7th Seal are preforming as well.
Mt. Tabor Theater, 4811 SE Hawthorne * 8 PM * $20
This looks fun: Reed Arts Week Masquerade Ball, featuring experimental light and electronic music act Luck Dragons. Sounds like this would be a good one to break out the costumes and glitter.
Reed College Student Union, 3203 SE Woodstock * 9:30 PM * $5
Find an interactive map like the one to the left here, for this weekend’s self-guided SE Area ARTWalk. “Nearly 100 artists will provide a blaze of colors, shapes, textures, and visual stimuli in SE Portland neighborhoods.” The ARTWalk is between 9th Ave to 41st and Powell to Hawthorne Blvd.
Artists show in their own creative space or are hosted by local residents and businesses allowing you to visit indoor locations. The SE Area ARTWalk is a community-building event that has strengthened the connection between businesses, artists, and neighbors. It’s a free event.
SE Portland * Saturday & Sunday
Also Saturday is the Rhythm of Resistance Open Mic Night. From the invitation: “join us for an open mic night that prioritizes the voices of poets of color in our city!
