Tender Forever, Joey Casio and Selector Dub Narcotic 

When: Fri., Sept. 24, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $8
Many Portlanders got their first earful and eyeful of Melanie Valera last week at PICA's Time Based Art festival, in which Valera—as Tender Forever—concocted a high-tech show with a huge array special effects including green screen, an iPad necklace, and a fake Skype chat with Beyoncé. It'll be interesting to see the France-born, Portland-residing Valera relatively stripped of these high-tech accoutrements. Tonight's show will put emphasis on Valera's comic onstage persona (a gag that makes biting fun of the typically over-inflated egos of pop stars) and Tender Forever's warmly melodic electro-pop songs, like those on the recent K Records release No Snare. K hosts tonight's "Zip-Pak Party," showcasing the label's new online MP3 subscription series, along with Joey Casio and Selector Dub Narcotic—the DJ alter ego of K Records founder Calvin Johnson.
