75+ Portland Weekend Events & Parties | August 27-30

Leigh sent out his weekly email of Portland weekend events earlier today. It is reproduced below with some additions by Pipeline. You can get the email and your chance to win hookups for shows and deals by emailing leighfeldman3 @ gmail and asking to join

There are many listings so we have put events in red (or blue = linked!) that we think will be good, well attended, or should be interesting.

Reminder: We give out free tickets every week to our Portland Facebook Group including to many of the top music and art venues in Portland. Join it if you like free stuff.

Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

We have 4 passes to Bumbershoot next weekend, 2 tickets to Keith Sweat/Teena Marie at Spirit Mountain Casino on the 4th, two tickets to Al Green (fri), two tickets to Joe Rogan's comedy special (fri), 1 pair of tickets to Mos Def (sat), 1 pair of tickets to Gilberto Santa Rosa (tonight!), 3 pairs of tickets to Orgone (the 31st), 1 pair of tickets to Betty Levette (the 31st) and 2 VIP booths for Massive/The Mos Def After Party on Saturday night!! … Whew. Take a breath. Ok. Wanna win any of them? Forward this email to a friend, have them write us asking to join the group and we'll enter you both in a drawing to win! (These are from Leigh, not Pipeline. Email him to join his list & win: leighfeldman3 @ gmail)

More free ish … Goorin Brothers is giving away 4 gift certificates each worth $50 (they are also giving away tons of goodies and free drinks at their party on Friday — see info below) to the first four people that send me a picture with the worst haircut you can find on the interweb.

Free music ish… Doctor Adam's mix for Karmaloop.tv x Massive 10. Definitely grab it. A lot of people will be hearing it playing in stores soon. http://divshare.com/download/8273860-212

Awesome ish … Massive this Saturday at the Crown Room is the Mos Def after party and Karmaloop.tv will be there along with a gang of other folks/goodies/giveaways! Free entry before 10pm if you come to the door and say ‘LifeisaParty' — never been to Massive before? Check the article in the Mercury this week!

Life is a party, everyone is just waiting to be invited.

See you all out and about! Leigh Feldman
