P minus 6

How was your Saturday night? You can do better next weekend. On Saturday evening, Oct. 15, join 35 visual artists, musicians Auditory Sculpture and Pepe & the Bottle Blondes, and a host of good-natured partygoers for Pulse, a benefit for the Oregon Chapter of the Children's Heart Foundation.

The artists will be getting there ahead of you. They'll start at 1:00 that afternoon and each create a work of art to be sold in a silent auction that ends at 9. A sneak preview starts at 5; doors open for general admission at 7. The dance party should get going around 9 and continue 'til around 11.

The artists include some big names and some up-and-comers. I must confess to not being entirely "up" on the scene, but I'm told that among the more interesting participants scheduled to participate are Jef Gunn, Joseph Mann, Amy Ruppel, Trish Grantham, Randall Sims, and Elise Wagner.

The location is Staver Locomotive -- a huge model train mecca over in Northwest Portland back by Portland Brewing. Tickets and more information are available here. I know the folks who are putting this together, and some of the kids who will benefit. I hope we see you there.

That Pepe guy - is he getting any grants or tax breaks from the city or county for being an "urban artisan," er, excuse me, a member of the "Creative Class"? (Aside from his loft, of course). 'Cause he kinda looks like the type. Boots with a$s-tachments have to be special order...I'm only asking because with the Bush economy, I could really use about $12,000 worth of "creative space", and since the county wants to extend the income tax and all, maybe they could just, uh, drop me a line item along with the city's other "developers".

I'm sure the benefit will be great, regardless.
