Portland Playhouse's excellent "No P.A. in NoPo" concert series—normally I'd describe it here, but that title sums it up quite nicely—is bringing out a big name for their next show: Blitzen Trapper. The band will be playing an all-acoustic set at the Portland Playhouse (for us non-theater folks, that address is 602 NE Prescott) on September 14. Given the intimate nature of this show, only 125 tickets will be available right here for a limited time only. In other words, buy them NOW.

End Hits: After their set the band will put on a dramatic performance of A Raisin in the Sun. I really hope Marty Marquis can pull off the role of Mama Younger.
