Weekend Warriors come out to plllaaayyy!!! Taurus Edition

Categories:

Who Doesn't Love this Guy?!?!?

Things I am currently jocking…

 

1) Innovative shows… DJ Cory O, who drops a weekly mix of craziness will be dj’ing out of the back of a U-Haul for last Thursday driving around the Alberta strip. Common Ground hosts the Bathrobe Parade where people will march down Alberta in (take a wild guess) bathrobes for last Thursday and ends the party with a live performance by Solovox. The Red Dress Party gathers 500+ people dressed all in red dresses to dance and go crazy all night. The Taurus Ball 4 will surely be a spectacle as the people involved go over the top with decorations and the artists performing will without a doubt be going wild. And then there is Jello Wrestling at the Watershed. Not much else needs to be said. These things speak for themselves.

 

2) DJ Marvel’s ‘Models & Bottles’ mix http://djmarvel.podOmatic.com/enclosure/2009-04-24T18_07_30-07_00.mp3 DJ Marvel just happens to be in town for DJ Gigahurtz’s birthday bash and on Friday night he’ll be rocking it at Hot Mess at Tube. Come see him for free! If you’ve never been to Hot Mess you have no idea what you are missing.

 

3) Staying pure till my wedding night … http://www.sexinchrist.com

 

4) Free ish... Pipeline gives you free tix every Thursday by asking simple questions like, "What is your favorite music venue in Portland". Answer(s) here to win: http://pdx.be/music-0429

 

5) The Blazers forcing game 7 tonight.

 

This list is growing by leaps and bounds. Turn to the person next to you and see if they are reading the same email. If not, forward it to them and tell them to join the community.

 

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.

 

See you all out and about!
