Join PNB for a timeless tale of holiday adventure performed by PNB’s amazing dancers and orchestra.
Despite the creeping chill of fall settling over Seattle last night, the music at Neumos was still hot, hot hot, when Hercules & Love Affair brought their fierce and distinct talents to the stage for a sublime midweek show. Chianti Darling warmed the crowd—and feature a virtual who's who of music in Portland, including Hannah Blilie of Gossip fame, Wild Flag's Rebecca Cole, Chanticleer Trü of Magic Mouth, noted producer Damon Boucher, and my personal music crush, Natasha Kmeto. Event producer Nark took care of opening duties behind the decks. Dancing ensued. Fun was had.
