The Clinton Street Stomp!


Saturday, Feb 24

The Clinton Street Stomp is coming back for two more AMAZING nights of music!!!

Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7pm sharp!



Clinton Street Stomp February 2018 Performers

crow-quill-night-owls-joe-longobardiCrow Quill Night Owls--The Crow Quill Night Owls are a band that plays jug band, jazz, and string band music of the 1920's and1930's. 
They were formed in 2007 by guitarist Kit "Stymee" Stovepipe and tenor banjoist Windy City Alex. They've since added Baylin Adahere on washtub bass. The group fluctuates from a duo to a six person band and often features members of other bands in similar genres.

FullSizeRender-2Sons of Rainier--The Sons Of Rainier are a recent collaboration of four musicians, Devin Champlin (Gallus Brothers, Crow Quill Night Owls), Dean Johnson (Lowman Palace), Sam Gelband, and Charlie Meyer (both of Honcho Poncho). They formed in a supernatural occurrence at the coziest of dimly lit bars in Seattle and bonded over a shared interest of singing together. The music rests on the foundation of Devin’s songwriting, and is brought forth with warm tube amps, Dean’s unpredictable, weeping guitar lines, a loosely tuned snare, upright bass, and close three part harmonies. It is 45 rpm folk music that is sweet and haunting. It’s a polaroid of a stolen slow dance.

blue flags and black grassBlue Flags and Black Grass--BFBG was born around the spring of '11 in Portland, Oregon. The typical gig is usually Flip and who ever else is available at the time. Depending on the players for the evening, BFBG's sound can be more of the jug/ragtime contingent or on the side of the gypsy-swing/bluegrass's good stuff.


The Dirty Shirley's--Jazz and Blues Duo

Special Admission

$10 in advance; $12 at the door.

(NOTE: There is a $1.75 service fee for the advance tickets. So you're basically paying the same either way; the advance ticket simply guarantees that you get a seat. The service fee is not paid to the theater, but to Seat Engine, the online system I use.

If you've ever been to the theater, you know I am small, and I can only offer this service by using an outside provider. Thanks for understanding.)

Every Saturday night since1978, the historic Clinton Street Theater has played host to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Before Gaga told us it was okay 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 40 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!

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 11:00pm - beer, wine & hard cider available for those 21 and over - prop bags for sale - preshow with virgin games and MC Nathan!!!
