Gritty Portland is quickly being replaced with slick condos & trendy eateries. However, the rugged, truly "weird” spirit still lives in many of our hearts. Club Nitty Gritty aims to wipe away the polish that's been slathered upon our city to release Portland's traditional raggedy jaggedy Pacific Northwest spirit. Bring your dancing shoes and your love of the blues!
RADIO SHOW SPECIAL
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, please join me THIS Thursday night for a very special SPACE TRAVEL episode my radio show Travlin the Tracks with DJ Action Slacks on KMHD at 89.1 fm or streaming live at KMHD.org.
We'll start out on Planet Earth listening to mid-century tunes celebrating the mystical and romantic powers of the moon. Then we'll blast off into outer space as the trippy, futuristic, electronic psych-soul/funky-jazz sounds of the 60s & 70s transport us to other worlds, because it's always fun listening to yesterday's version of "the future".
As we reflect on the most celebrated scientific accomplishment of humankind, let's turn our attention to harnessing our talents to address the challenges we face in the "future world" reality we're experiencing today. Because, "if we can put a man on the moon", we SHOULD be able to re-imagine a more equitable society, and build a reality in which racism and bigotry are not deeply entrenched in our societal system.
