This is a past event.

And And And, Jonathan Magdaleno, Death Songs 

When: Wed., June 6, 6 p.m. 2012
For whatever reason, Bim Ditson (drummer of And And And) has the drive to go hard on ridiculous projects. See: Rigsketball, a Portland-band mobile basketball tournament that takes place on the back of the band's van; And And And's Underbelly Bender tour that had the band on staycation at Portland dive bars; strapping cameras to cats, or at least pretending to; and making graphs in Apple Paintbrush that document social observations. What's gone from a few online "graph" posts published on blogs and media outlets is, with help from Mercury freelancer Matt Stangel, now here in real life. Ditson's recreating his graphs into actual, tangible pieces of art hung on the wall of a SE Hawthorne coffee shop. But it wouldn't be a proper Portland event unless there was music, right? Luckily the Back Stage Theater, located in the back room of Common Grounds, is in on this, too. There will be intimate, stripped-down performances by Death Songs, Nathan Baumgartner and Ryan Wiggans of And And And, and Jonathan Magdaleno of Support Force. Way to make something kind of funny and dumb into something that actually totally rules. Again. ROCHELLE HUNTER
