After the First Thursday gallery openings end in downtown Portland, hop over the river for drinks & snacks or dinner, and a whip-smart spectacle: live music, live TLN mischief, and live interviews with artists & performers who are happening that month.
It all happens at Din Din, Portland's own French-leaning bistro & supper club, notable for its synesthetic supper events (23 courses, anyone?) and conscientiously sourced, ever delicious, always unpretentious fare.

THE ASTOUNDING LINEUP:
HOLLY ANDRES - The acclaimed Portland-based photographer has had solo exhibitions in New York, LA, San Francisco, Atlanta, Istanbul, Turkey, and PDX. Her work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Time, Art in America, Artforum, Exit Magazine, Art News, Modern Painters, Oprah Magazine, Elle Magazine, The LA Times, Glamour, Blink and Art Ltd.
CAITLIN MATHIS - The "charming" and "smashing" mezzo-soprano (per the critics and per us) leaves PDX shortly for NYC and the world, but first she treats us to electrifying polyglot cabaret here on TLN.
THREE FOR SILVER - Headed by the multitalented duo of Willo Sertain and Lucas Warford, Three For Silver deliver richly woven rants, seductions and drunken ballads redolent of three-masted schooners shipwrecked on classic rock. They'll perform original songs and join forces with Caitlin Mathes for some all-star polyglot cabaret.
THREE TRICK PONY - We'll talk to the three artists behind this wonderful performance piece (we've seen previews) set to premiere at PICA's TBA Festival. We'll pick up a few tricks from LINDA AUSTIN, performer; DAVID ECKART, sculptor; and DOUG THERIAULT, composer (also known to TLN fans as Kim Jong Chill).
HISTORY BEING MADE BEFORE A LIVE STUDIO AUDIENCE: This will be the historic first "taping" of The Late Now! Motion Picture Producer/Director Cassie Cohn will professionally shoot the show in glorious three-camera style, along with Derek Ecklund, sound, and Brian Jennings, lighting. It will be the first episode to be shown (shortly after) on the TLN youtube channel.
