Paula Vogel's Hot 'n' Throbbing Examines Porn & Domestic Violence

Buy Tickets $8.50 $17

Charlene is a suburban mother who writes erotic screenplays for women as a means to support her children. Clyde is her funny, dangerously obsessive and estranged husband. Then there are their two hormonally overcharged teenagers. Amidst all the chaos, Charlene is desperately trying to meet a super-tight deadline. This is the premise of Hot 'n' Throbbing, a gripping play by Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of How I Learned To Drive. When Charlene's alcoholic husband returns, however, the comedic backdrop quickly gives way to a dark, intense -- and very adult -- examination of the intersection of pornography and domestic violence. Twilight Theater Company brings the show to the Portland stage.

Heavy Metal From Diamond Head & More

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

It should be no secret that anyone who's slipped a disc head-banging to the likes of Metallica or Megadeth owes a musical debt to the English thrash metal-heads of Diamond Head. Over the past 40 years, through a series of ups and downs and their fair share of hard-rock drama, the band has continued to record and perform, ensuring that their legacy is indeed stamped in something as lasting as, well ... heavy metal. Catch them in concert at Portland's Bossanova Ballroom with support from Portland's own psychedelic heavy-prog-rockers Danava and thrash trio Disenchanter.
