Teaming up to highlight the best artists from Portland’s bountiful music scene, two local cultural enterprises are joining forces: Portland Center Stage (PCS) and Portland Radio Project (PRP) have announced the premier of a new concert series, “Local Spins,” to begin September 15, 2015. The concerts will be held every Tuesday evening through mid-November in the elegant lobby bar of the historic Armory in the Pearl District.
“We’re very excited to Partner with PRP in showcasing local artists,” said Cynthia Fuhrman, PCS Chief Operating Officer, “This concert series will give our audience a chance to relax and enjoy their friends’ company before Tuesday night shows.” As the “radio station that plays a local artist every 15 minutes,” PRP founder Rebecca Webb said, “we have deep and unique connections in the Portland music community, and we consider this a tremendous opportunity for both theater-goers and local musicians.”
Featuring the new local Celtic band, The Seseisiunists (pronounced “secessionists”), the first “Local Spins” concert begins at 6:30 p.m. September 15, immediately prior to the PCS 2015 season premier of Thornton Wilder’s classic, “Our Town.” Concert admission is free and open to the public. (No show ticket is required.)
