This is the show you’ve been waiting for! And we, at least, can’t wait any longer:
- 1:15 - Sleater-Kinney joins us in the studio. All three members. Swoon.
The trio plays its first hometown show in years at the Crystal Ballroom on May 5, but you might have better luck getting tickets to see them at Sasquatch.
- 19:35 - The NW Film Center kicks off a new series, Essential Gus Van Sant (and His Influences). Film critic Shawn Levy and writer Mario Falsetto, author of “Conversations with Gus Van Sant,” join us in the studio to talk about Portland’s cinematic bard.
- 29:07 - A crazy indie-choir crossover strikes April 18 when local musicians Alan Singley and Sama Dams joins forces with the 150-voice Camas High School choir to perform new works by local bands and international composers. It’s called “Joined Voices” and takes place at the First Congregational Church in downtown Portland.
- 37:30 - “Oregon Art Beat” takes a look at the emerging artist Samantha Wall, whose striking black-and-white portraits of women spark the imagination. You can watch Arts Beats full story on OPB on Thursday at 8pm and Sunday at 6pm.
- 43:40 - Superstar choreographer Darrell Grand Moultrie has worked with everyone from Beyonce to Harlem Dance Theatre, and now he’s bringing his moves for a world premiere at OBT’s spring show, Impact, April 16–25 at the Newmark Theatre. Harlem Dance Theatre is also headed to the Schnitz April 21–22 with its own world premiere of another of Moultrie’s works as part of White Bird Dance‘s season. What’re the chances?
