All kits include step-by-step instructions so that anyone can make a unique work of art. This event is not instructor led. We have 29 colors of string, 22 paint colors, and several image templates - you don't have to make your project to look like ours! For a closer look at our projects, visit hammeredpdx.com. About BridgePort BrewPub: "In an old cortage factory over 30 years ago, the brewmasters at Bridgeport Brewing set out on a mission. Instead of simply manufacturing beer, we’d use the freshest local ingredients from the wonderful Willamette Valley and craft them into a nectar the beer gods would be proud of. That day, Beervana was born. From our Original IPA first brewed in 1984 to our fan favorite Kingpin Double Red Ale, we’ve always brewed with the boisterous citizens of our fair city in mind. Our beer is made to reflect the unique snowflakes that drink it, because beer means more here. And for as long as the grey skies cover our land, we’re going to keep giving them the great beer they deserve. Bridgeport Brewing. Long Live Beervana."

Clinton Street Resistance presents Pet Sematary
Clinton Street Theater – After moving to an idyllic home in the countryside, life seems perfect for the Creed family...but not for long. Louis and Rachel Creed and their two young children settle in to a house that sits next door to a pet cemetery - built on an ancient Indian burial ground. Their mysterious new neighbor, Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne), hides the cemetery's darkest secret...until a family tragedy brings the secret to life. Now, an unthinkable evil is about to be resurrected. From STEPHEN KING, the Master of the Macabre, comes a journey that leads to hell and back. Though not everyone survives the trip. For the Creeds, home is where the horror is. Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Liberation Literacy, whose mission is to build social justice literacy in prisons in order to reimagine and rearticulate the relationship between incarceration, our community, and ourselves. FREE MOVIE; donations taken for Liberation Literacy. If you can't make it, and would like to donate, please use the ticket link.

In Pursuit of Silence
Northwest Film Center – Few documentaries (or feature narratives, for that matter), are as meditative and deeply engrossing as In Pursuit of Silence, Shen’s ruminative portrait of several silence-seekers throughout a planet increasingly bombarded by all-encompassing noise. The post-modernist composer John Cage, a man who’s taken a vow of silence and is walking across the US, a sound researcher at Denali National Park in Alaska, a tea master and ecological researcher in Japan and others comprise the film’s interviewees, but Shen’s approach also gives us plenty of space to cultivate silence both in the moment and well after we leave the movie theater. Through a still, gorgeous visual style and enveloping soundtrack, the film is “as much a visual treat as an aural one, [dividing] its time between using the tools of cinema to isolate and enhance the beauty of sounds and silence and exploring different schools of thought on the subject.”—Scott Tobias, NPR.

History Pub: From Poor Farm to Global Attraction
Oregon Historical Society – From Poor Farm to Global Attraction: The History of Portland’s International Rose Test Garden About the Presentation: Marking its centennial this year, Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is the oldest continuously operating public garden of its kind in the United States. The garden includes 650 varietals of roses and draws more than a half-million visitors each year. Harry A. Landers has worked as the Rose Garden Curator for three decades, giving him unique perspective on the little-known history of one of the best rose gardens in the world. Before the garden was built, Multnomah County’s Poor Farm resided for forty years in what is today Washington Park. In the opening decade of the twentieth century, explosive growth resulted in the farm’s displacement to Troutdale. In the boosters’ vision of Portland as a prosperous, healthy, and middle-class city of homeowners, there would be no room for last century’s poor farm. Kira Lesley’s talk — “Making Room for Roses: Portland’s Early-Twentieth Century Development and the 1911 Relocation of the Multnomah County Poor Farm” — will explore this history. About the Speakers: Harry A. Landers grew up on a farm in North Dakota and earned his degree in horticulture from the University of North Dakota. He first visited the Rose Gardens in 1984, when he declared he would work there someday. He is now the only full-time employee of the gardens, which are also tended by part-time assistants in the summer and volunteers who work throughout the year. Kira Lesley is a Master’s student in Public History at Portland State, where she studies U.S. social and environmental history. Her thesis focuses on the 1911 relocation of the Multnomah County Poor Farm. Besides history, her other passion is music, and she is a singer-songwriter, as well as a singer in a Round Trip, a psychedelic rock and folk rock cover band. She was born and raised in Northeast Portland and attended St. Mary’s Academy, where she was a Rose Festival Ambassador (which is a term they used instead of “princess” for about ten years).

Ruth B
McMenamins Mission Theater – More info at: https://www.mcmenamins.com/events/173791-ruth-b 6:30 p.m. doors, 7:30 p.m. show $15 advance, $20 day of show All ages welcome Canadian newcomer Ruth B. established herself as an authentic singer/songwriter of considerable promise and purpose in 2016, and the music world responded with open arms. Most recently, she received a coveted JUNO Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and a BMI Pop Award for her viral hit "Lost Boy," which started it all. Her 12-song debut album Safe Haven shines as dazzling pop embroidery far surpassing first album expectations, with Rolling Stone lauding the album 3.5 stars and declaring Ruth B. "one to watch." Composing all of the album's songs herself, Ruth blazes with the same surefooted intensity as she did on "Lost Boy," but all the while transforming and growing right before our eyes. Her captivating presence charges the atmosphere on the new album with an unpretentious intimacy. Grammy Award-winning producer Joel Little's (Lorde) layered production showcases Ruth's breathtakingly golden vocals and piano/keyboard chops while creating new aural spaces for her to shine. Whether it's the incredible Pop song craft of "Dandelion" or the up-tempo harmonic splendor of "Safe Haven," the young artist wins us over as an undiluted force to be reckoned with. Ruth's instinctual command is elegantly magnified, with Little enlivening the sonic shadings and breathtaking harmonies, but never over-reaching. Like all the best fully-realized debut albums, Safe Haven stakes claim to higher musical ground by the sheer power of Ruth's artistry. Blessed with a knack for flaking the gold from every confessional verse, the 21 year old Ruth has described Safe Haven as a musical "diary," with many of the songs inspired by those final, formative years of high school and the year after leading up to her astonishing debut. "I didn't do any co-writes on the album because I needed the songs to come from heart," Ruth says. "Writing songs for me is literally like keeping a diary. These are stories rooted in that crucial phase of growing up - what I felt about love and heartbreak and being young and everything in between, so I couldn't imagine handing over the diary to someone else. " Safe Haven showcases Ruth's ability to change course, from plaintive piano ballads like the poignant opening track "Mixed Signals" to the moodier love-is-a-battlefield-dramatics of "World War 3." She scales the heights of her vocal power on the stunning power-ballad "If This Is Love," which Ruth wrote it in one day and performed the next night to a sold-out crowd at Joe's Pub. "For me that was a real turning point - the night where people stopped looking at me as a ‘Viner' and saw that I was a genuine songwriter. Now, my biggest goal is for the songs on Safe Haven to move people and inspire them." Website: https://www.ruthbofficial.com/
