Opening night of Portland's Funniest Person contest, with a lot of the strongest competitors -- the ones who already work at Helium as MCs or features, including Metafilter's own msalt, Gabe Dinger, and Shane Torres.
This is a dozen comics doing 5-6 minutes sets of their best material. If you tell them you're a friend of Mark, you can get 2 for 1 tickets (2 for $10). If that's still a bit steep, memail msalt as he has a limited number of free tickets, first come first served.
Let us try and finalize this meetup. I am suggesting Thursday, 30 May and Common Roots on Lyndale and 26th. I realize we have a Wednesday/Thursday split, but Thursday ended up looking best for me. Any further thoughts?
MeFi-favorite Flying Lotus is playing a hometown show at House of Blues Sunset w/ the always-relaxing Teebs (sample here) and bass virtuoso Thundercat (music sample here, really short bass solo here). Let's go enjoy it together and maybe get food/drinks before/after. :) tix and other info for the show here[more inside]
So someone at the last meetup mentioned camping and then someone mentioned camping with Metafilter and then someone else thought "Yeah, let's do that". So here I am posting a camping meetup. Tent, mostly. With some options. [more inside]
