365 Things to do in Portland # 167: Lady Gaga after party @ Refuge
If you don’t have $130-$250 to blow on a Lady Gaga ticket for tomorrow night (Thursday) at the Rose Garden, but you want to get in on some of the the Gaga action, check out the official after party happening at The Refuge in the Industrial SE area.
Whether or not Lady Gaga herself will be there or not doesn’t really matter. I have a feeling this is probably going to be a pretty rocking Thursday night. The party is headlined by Semi Precious Weapons- formerly a van touring rock band, whose now opening nation wide for Lady Gaga’s MonsterBall. I’ve check out some of there music on You Tube- not really for me, but I still think it will be a fun show. The party will be going pretty late- also playing will be Kay Lyn (spinning house), and The Perfect Cyn.
Solovox- Portland’s one man synthesizer attack squad will be playing too- if you’ve never heard him, you really need to- I’ve been a fan since 2004- have probably had him play at least 20 of my parties, and have heard his music so much that I’ve gotten bored and fallen back in love with it more times than I can count. Actually, Solovox really deserves to have 365 Day devoted to him- but we’ll save that for another time. I talked to Solovox last week about this show, and he said he’s going to play his heart out, so wear some good dancing shoes.
The party is at 116 SE Yamhill. You must be 21+ to enter. $13 door. Starts at 9pm
