Make way for the terrifying women. The scary ladies of Terrifying Women, a film and dance program, include past and present Portlanders Alicia McDaid, Tanya Smith, Woolly Mammoth Comes to Dinner's Kathleen Keogh, and more. While not necessarily terrifying, some of their past pieces have seen bewigged anthropological studies, amusing cable access parodies, and colorful dance pieces. Curation by McDaid bodes well for this 45-minute program, even while promising "Vagina Monologues on nitrous oxide wearing strap-on penises." Next up is Portland filmmaker Weston Currie, who's screening a new film with a live soundtrack from Grouper's Liz Harris. Currie and Harris make for a powerful and spooky team--for proof, see their Sundance-approved The Perception of Moving Targets. Ending the evening on a manic high note, you can play B-Movie Bingo to the "Butthorn!"-screaming antics of everyone's beloved wall-eyed nutjob, Gary Busey, who stars as loose cannon Frank "Butthorn" McBain in 1988's Bulletproof. Prepare to scream "Bingo, Butthorn!" with all the fury of McBain after you cross out host Wolf Choir's bingo card squares, which include such entries as "male ponytail," "screaming while shooting," and "beaten with severed limb." Now let's play bingo, butthorn! Who knew TBA would have so much butthorning? CF
