This week, the conversation continues on interactions between Portland’s law enforcement community and hip hop venues and artists. We talked to Rasheed Jamal about a recent show at Kelly’s Olympian, in which ticket sales were slashed by the Fire Marshal’s order. Jamal will tell his side of the story, and share some thoughts on differences he’s observed between Portland and his hometown in Arkansas.
Here’s the long version of the interview that appears in this week’s show.
Also, we check in with Anthony Sanchez of Runaway Productions, and Nicholas Harris of Soul’d Out Productions. They’ll discuss their experiences as promoters of hip hop and soul music - including the subtle effect police interest can have on the booking end of the business.
Also, Casey Jarman’s open letter to Portland, asking fans, venues, and others to get up and take action.
Here’s where to find out what’s coming up for Runaway Productions in the coming months.
