Musicians Wanted!

Christmas Open Mike Night/ Fundraiser

So the holidays are here, and we are very excited to announce that our first Christmas Open Mike Night will be held on DECEMBER 20th, from 8-11pm. All participants have 10 minutes to entertain the crowd with their best renditions of, well...whatever Christmahanakwanzaka songs they have! Please sign up now so Evan can begin his magic in preparation of this fantastic night. As usual, all songs should be family friendly and squeaky-clean in content. Contact Evan through myspace, coming by the shop, calling 503-601-4314, or emailing We can't wait to hear from you!And since its Christmas and all, we thought we’d take the opportunity to plug one of our favorite local organizations that night, as well as taking cash (or check!)donations, and food for The House of Ruth. In case you aren’t aware of this amazing organization right in our backyard, The House of Ruth is a nonprofit home for young pregnant women in their time of need. They have been changing lives for over ten years now, giving hope to girls who have never had acceptance, love, or a sense of belonging before. These wonderful women leave with full hearts and a better understanding of how to break cycles of abuse and addiction, giving them the chance to change their lives, and the lives of their children. I can’t say enough good things about what their staff is doing, and this is a great chance for the community to come out and show their love and support to the girls in the home, and the wonderful people who make it all possible. Financial contributions are always welcomed, but please keep in mind that there’s a long list of other things they can use: Paper towels, dish soap, laundry soap, diapers, canned food items, get the idea. For more on exactly what they can use right now, please go to
As always, our music nights are free of a cover charge...but consider bringing an extra buck or two for THoR. If everybody does, it will really add up-wouldn’t that be awesome?
