If you stopped by on First Friday, you saw how Grand Detour’s collaboration with Boom Bap! has created a space brimming with multimedia and interactive phenomena. BUT we’re just getting our feet wet, and our best is yet to come, starting THIS WEEK!
JOIN US starting at 8pm on Thursday the 13th for TBDfest, a celebration of our vision and a showcase of all the crazyamazing things we have to offer. We’re just a few blocks down from the Works at Washington High School and we have seriously, so much stuff.
Here’s what’s on tap! Bear with us, It’s a lot. But as EFFPortland might have shown you, we think more is more:
Memory Boys: Pacific Northwest-tastic electroacoustic folk rock
William Ingrid: freaky electrosoul radness from the co-directors of Boom Bap!
BASEMENT SNAKE: lo-fi techno-cipher nonsense from the co-directors of EFFPortland
Doug Hanning: jazz piano improvenomena (not so much Thelonious Monk as Thelonious Wizard)
Backlit, by Rubina Martini
mermaid blues, by Hannah Piper Burns
Five selections, new and vintage, from the Grand Detour vault
Swampy clicking of darkening rhythms by Jeffrey Von Ragan in accompaniment to his first film, Forbidden Fruit (1993)
opticnoodling, by Lena Munday: gentle performance. ambient, improvised, live audiovisuals that create a space for play.

Don’t miss this smorgasbord of sensory stimulation! Come out and see what we can do: TBDfest is just the tip of the iceberg!
