THIS IS HUGE.
We here at Grand Detour have made a bold stride into the future of experimental media in Portland, teaming up with our longtime allies Boom Bap! in the warehouse at 640 SE Stark! We are going to be bringing you all kinds of amazing, multiform events! This adventure in collaboration and cross-promotion will create a space for all kinds of projects and happenings in the months to come.
Our new venture is kicking off with a BANG this Friday, September 7, as we debut this collaborative effort with a showcase of live music and cray media! Join us for a pizza party with White Rainbow, Donnie Blossoms, and Free Weed, and a gallery full of installation, projections, and general multimedia smorgasbord. It all goes down starting at 6pm!
We’ll be kicking it up a notch further on Thursday, September 13th, for an event we are lovingly referring to as TBDfest: live music, installation, improvised media, live animation, and more and more and more. Are we flagrantly flaunting our TBA adjacent-ness? Uh, yeah. The fun starts at 8pm. Come get blitzed on sight sound text and light!
There’s lots and lots more to come, so instead of overwhelming you with our amazing lineup, we’ll just give you a quick blast for now, with details to follow. And there will be more! Check it:
9/20: Chris Freeman*
9/27: Brent Coughenour*
10/6: Jeremy Rourke*

So get pumped, and stay pumped, cause we are back with a vengeance and ready to rock your world with an experimental media extravaganza!
