seven years

it creeps up on me every year. well, it has for the last several. i've decided there's nothing lonelier than your heart remembering the anniversary of your husband's death before your brain does. today is the one day i will allow tears for a man at whom i'm still angry, a man with whom i have equal horrifying and happy memories, for the man who scared me as much as he loved me.

ALEX SMOKE tonight at Branx

We've got a really special show for Portland tonight. We're bringing one of Earth's premier *LIVE* techno acts, ALEX SMOKE, all the way from Glasgow, Scotland. Alex Smoke has blown minds across the land with his live sets, including show stealing sets at both DEMF and Decibel festival most recently. We're very honored to be hosting this muscian and I hope you all are as excited as we are to see this guy in action. Following up this grand slam, we have an incredibly solid 'dream team' of Northwest talent representing.

Portland's own "Let's Go Outside" will be playing a live techno set specifically designed around this show. You may have witnessed Steve (LGO) absolutely slay the dance floor at our last show "Get out of your Skin" (Steve's Birthday Party), so you already know what this man is capable of.

Nordic Soul is coming down to represent Seattle at our little techno symposium. Nordic Soul, also of Decibel fame has been a pillar of the Northwest electronic community and the importance of his contributions to our musical culture can not be stated enough. Not only is Nordic Soul an incredible force behind the scenes, but he is also an extremely talented producer and dj--we are stoked to have him down for this.

Rounding out this dream team of talent, we have our very own miss 31avas. Ava has been carrying the techno torch in Portland strong for many years now, hosting SEVERE EXPOSURE on KPSU every Tuesday night for as long as I can remember, which is a radio show dedicated to the music of techno. Not only that, she is one half of the flagship techno night KULTURSZENE which has been one of Portland's most beloved techno showcases for the last two years and shows no sign of slowing down. Ava brings a lot of experience and some serious taste to the decks.


Nothing rounds out a show quite like a rock solid sound system. We're pulling out all the stops for this show, and we have enlisted H.A.S. sound systems to provide a FIRST CLASS auditory experience. Bass that you can feel, bass that you can SEE. Prepare yourself for a world class audio experience. Many of you have witnessed the H.A.S. system at VARIOUS, as
well as KULTURSZENE and other notable event. When you see H.A.S. on a
flyer, you know the music is going to be SERIOUS.

Last but not least, we've joined up with one of the visual artists from the Portland State University Audio Visual Deptartment. You have *NEVER* seen Branx look like this before. Kayna will be setting up state of the art audio responsive visual projection systems, as well as state of the art active LED lighting systems that will help take your party experience over
the top and help transform our venue into a world that is completely reactive and dynamic.
