A special Drop-In Session at Portland Radio Project: members of Blitzen Trapper will take a ride on The Bus Stop, Wednesday April 5, between 3-4 pm!

Nobody tells their wooly Northwest band story as well as they do in their original rock musical, now playing Portland Center Stage at The Armory:

“Blitzen Trapper mined their lyrical storytelling and Oregonian roots to create a story for the stage that fuses the energy of a rock concert with the imaginative possibility of the theater. Wild and Reckless traces the unforgettable tale of two kids on the run, in a futuristic vision of Portland’s past. Evoking a bygone era of Portland, this sci-fi love story features a rock-and-roll score that pairs unreleased songs with favorites from the band’s catalog, including “Black River Killer” and “Astronaut.” Portland Center Stage at The Armory commissioned Wild and Reckless as the second world premiere in its new “Northwest Stories” series, dedicated to developing and producing stories about, or by artists from, the Northwest region.”

Join Heather Hanson Wednesday, April 5, to hear firsthand from the Blitzen Trapper band, what it was like to create a world premier theater production about themselves. Heather will give away two pairs of text-to-win tickets to “Wild and Reckless” during the Session. Our text-to-win number is 27299. so, keep that number handy, and listen to win a pair of tickets to a special night at The Armory.

Note: If you don’t win, you can still use the promo code 99.1 to get a ticket discount!


Don’t forget to head down to The Armory for First Thursday (free) when the School of Rock House band will warm up the crowd for Wild and Reckless Thursday night, April 6.
