Julian Chadwick Edit: Since I have received two notifications of the misspelling of “suicide”, I want to say that is the way Karen sent it to me, and the way Josh (Someday Lounge) sent it to me…I guess that is how they want to spell it, but it's not me (I misspell all the time though and appreciate people catching it and letting me know–so THANKS!).
Edit 2: Karen got back to me, and suicide is now spelled correctly.
From Karen Page of Polly High Entertainment:
PORTLAND, OR, October 29, 2007 — As the harvest moon sets in over Portland, and scenesters prepare for seasonal depression, a collective of performing artists calling themselves "Suicide Watch" invites you to embrace the darkness over a cocktail at the Someday Lounge on the Monday before Halloween beginning at 9 pm.
SomedayLounge's lush surroundings are the perfect backdrop for this event, which will include disturbing, eerie film footage (on the big screen) from local filmmakers Amanda Kelly, Dan Wegman and Joe Demaree, and a live reading of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell Tale Heart. All of this and four singer-songwriters who aim to make your hearts bleed into your vodka tonic, so maybe just forget the tonic and skip straight to the good stuff.
This year's Suicide Watch Line-up will feature Portland's lovable heart-breakin' icon Michael Dean Damron (I Can Lick Any SOB In The House), and original spoken works by Garett Strickland of Portland's art collaborative, Phase One: words + Music. Also featured will be Polly High vocalist Karen Page and universal time traveler Madame Positron, followed by a headlining performance by musician/visual artist Amanda Kelly, fearless leader of the multimedia experience known as House of Badger.
Expect whiskey drink specials, freshly carved jack-o-lanterns, red velvet and Nosferatu. Someday Lounge has a full food menu and an extensive cocktail lost from which to pick your poison. Bring your sorrows, pull up a leather couch and share in the misery.
