Today At The Clinton Street Theater
Make A Difference Day: THE STARFISH THROWERS
Powerful, direct and heartrending, The Starfish Throwers explores how three of the world's most fiercely compassionate individuals struggle to restore hope to the hopeless in unexpected and sometimes dangerous ways. Continents apart, a sixth grader, a top chef and retired school teacher fight what seems an unwinnable war until they discover their impact may reach further than their action.
Delmark Goldfarb Concert and Live Recording
Delmark is wrapping up a six-month music tour of Belgium, Germany, Poland, Israel and the U.K. with a nice homecoming concert/cd release party in Portland. Please join us.
Delmark Goldfarb is a survivor of the 60’s Folk music boom. He heard the music and took it to heart, moving to New York City as a teenager. He played all the Folk clubs, meeting many of his heroes in the Folk world. He followed his musical interests to Memphis and years later, he moved west to Portland. Goldfarb spent time performing and promoting music. His Rose City Blues Festival of 1987 eventually grew to be the Waterfront Blues Fest.
His passion for songwriting never waned. One song, "Portable Man," was also issued on an anthology titled Give Us Your Poor, a fundraiser to end homelessness put together by the prominent folk label, Appleseed Records. Goldfarb cut the song with John Sebastian, founding member of the Lovin’ Spoonful and it sits right next to Bonnie Raitt, Bon Jovi, Keb’ Mo’ and Bruce Springsteen on the CD. Portland’s Curtis Salgado also recorded the song on his CD Soul Activated. John Sebastian calls him “"the best new writer of good-time music I know."
His songs have migrated around the world just as he has travelled throughout Europe and the Middle East. After several years of collaborating with instrumentalists in Israel, Belgium, France and England, Goldfarb plans to wrap up a new "international" cd with a few tunes recorded live at this concert. Special guests to highlight the Portland concert include drummer Michael Beach (Brothers of the Baladi); blues harpist Cliff Ashmon (Hudson Rocket Band), Miz Mary on washboard with support vocals by Joe Baker, Audrey Goldfarb ("Audreality") and Hawthorne icon George Thrower.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show "BIY"
Every Saturday night since1978, the historic Clinton Street Theater has played host to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Before Gaga told us it was o.k. to be "Born This Way" we had the fishnet clad sexual liberation of Frank-n-furter teling us, "Don't Dream it, Be it."
It is in the spirit of over 30 years of this liberation that we invite you to come "Be It" Yourself.
The Rocky B.I.Y. nights turn the attention on YOU the audience.
You bring the costumes!
You bring the dance numbers!
You bring the fun!
So unpack that French Maid's dress from that box behind the kids' old toys and dust off your tap shoes. Whether you are are a virgin or a veteran you'll delight in this cinematic right of passage and cherished Portland tradition.
Doors open at 11:30pm
We're not going to explain this one - you just have to see it.
