    You people at PDXPipeline have the goods!!! You always list happenings that I want to go to, and go to as often as I can! The Vagabond Opera and Chervona are some of the very best Portland and the West Coast, for God Sakes!, has to offer. For anyone that hasn’t seen them or experienced it, go now! NOW! (And by the way, I would LOVE to win tickets!). Thanks!

    this looks like the way halloween should be celebrated, with fire, mysticism, and chocolate. I want to go!

  11. Nathan October 25, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    After 4 disappointing Halloweens in a row, I definitely need to try something new, and this event sounds very intriguing!

  12. Helena October 25, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

    This sounds like a spooktacular way to spend the greatest night of the year. “Six more days til Halloween, Halloween Halloween, six more days til Halloween, Silver Shamrock.”

    I would like to go, so I can celebrate my ancestors and honor my friends who have passed. Specifically, one dear friend who I lost recently, Drew Keriakedes, aka, Shmootzi The Clod. Last time I saw Vagabond Opera was with Drew. Such lovely memories of the past, and on All Hallows Eve… the past rises up to mingle with the present.

    My belly wants to dance here!!!

  15. Natalie Grant October 26, 2012 at 7:48 am #

    Please, I gotta get out of the house!

  16. B.S. Jones October 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    This event will be the best thing happening in PDX on Halloween. The only thing that would make it better is if I could represent PDX Pipeline at the show. The Vagabond Opera and Chervona are going to bring the house down.

  17. Jason October 26, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    sounds like a blast.

  18. Lynnie October 26, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    O Beloved PDX Pipeline, I just quit my job and Vagabond and RB can help me dance away my sense of impending poverty! <3

  19. Tits McGhee October 26, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    ….Because I have mean Hopak moves and my costume just happens to be Russian-inspired. Eerily appropriate for this unearthly event, no?

  20. Lucy October 27, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I’m a huge fan of Vagabond and I’m also a huge broke person.

  21. Jennifer October 27, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    This is so great! I love Portland for events like this. It’s great to live in a city where music, dance, prayer and costumes are celebrated! I would love to attend such an eclectic celebration of Halloween and honor my brothers resent passing as well as join in on dance a music celebrations of those who have left us.

    With no sunshine, the shadow of the self can no longer hide and there is much beauty in our pain and fears. I’m visiting from California & been embracing the darkness here in Portland.
    I would be very great full to win tickets to this event, seems to be exactly what my heart is yearning for. A-hoy matey!

  34. Joyzza October 30, 2012 at 7:48 pm #

    Sacred dances to venerate dear dead ones, what better symbols of the breath and passion of life than fire and sensuous dance? I’d love to attend!
