Untoward: A Benefit for the CMG

Portland's creative class has long been privy to the importance of the nonprofit Creative Music Guild, a bastion for experimental dance, performance art, music, and more. For over 20 years, CMG has curated exciting installments like the Outset Series at North Portland's Revival Drum Shop, which provides a venue for completely improvised live music. Similarly cutting edge are the annual Improvisation Summit of Portland and the Visiting Artist Series. This year's benefit features an engaging collective of improvisational dancers, interspersed with improv musical performances by Neal Morgan, Parenthetical Girls' Zac Pennington, Wet Wool, and more. Half of the money raised will be used specifically to pay local creative musicians, dancers, and other performance acts through the 2012-2013 season, so leaning on the steeper side of the $8-800 sliding scale would be a huge help.
