Tonight Melanie Valera (known to you as Tender Forever) will be performing at the Time-Based Art festival sponsored by the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art in a show they describe as “Expansive pop songs coupled with live green screen, multi-screen projections, animations and audience-participation.” It’s all happening at Washington High School, 531 SE 14th Ave., Portland, Ore.
Next week we host a much-delayed celebration of the new Tender Forever album No Snare at the Kennedy School Gymnasium Friday, September 24. This is an early show that begins at 6:00 PM and ends by 11:00 PM, and doubles as a celebration of the K Singles Zip-Pak, so prepare to get wild. Besides Tender Forever, Joey Casio will perform and Selector Dub Narcotic (that’s me!) will spin phonograph records for your dancing pleasure. It will be heaps of good times.
