The third annual THRILLER celebration is HERE! From the very first year this has always been an extremely FUN and zany event. Considered one of Portland’s finest HALLOWEEN parties. There is always a THRILLER dance, costumes are encouraged and this year will not be any different.

Every year there is always a mix of hip-hop. dance classics, house, and minimal. This year we have Belguim artist RAOUL BELMANS coming as a special dj guest for a LATER house set! We are pleased to see Pumpkin from LA join us, he was the greatest sensation at this years Lighting in a Bottle. This year we have a very fun and **special guest** that will be announced the day of…

The Nitty Gritty:



(Pocket Underground / Wandering Marionettes) LA
Pumpkin is the music producer and curator behind the Wandering Marionettes and their eclectic event, Kabinet Theatre, as well as member of the famed Los Angeles collective POCKET Underground. By embracing all moods and genres, Pumpkin’s remixes and DJ sets have been known to inspire lust, love and laughter. Tactfully walking the thin line between hip-grinding rhythms and bittersweet lyrical melodies, Pumpkin truly loves every song he shares with the dancefloor.


Take a love for electric boogie music, an appreciation for afro culture, an admiration for snares, palpitating bass lines and seducing vocals and what do you get? A consummate dish of tantalizing house music, Belgian-style, served delightfully by Raoul Belmans.

He has emerged as a prominent, international house music figure, with a DJ career spanning beyond a decade taking him on tour worldwide. Possessing a love of all things funky, Raoul’s passion for music amalgamated with a drive to succeed, has resulted in him becoming a pivotal force in the house music industry. Raoul is also known as being a part of Swirl People, as the driving force behind the successful Aroma Recordings, lately also Swirled Music and as the host of the house segment of the Switch radio show on Belgium’s Studio Brussel between 2004-2009.
