January 30th brings to Valentine’s SLOW BURN, an evening of bands, verse, and visions. Showcasing talents in both the literary and musical genres, SLOW BURN features readings by Portland-based poets with national renown, Joseph Mains and Matthew Dickman, as well as performances from hometown heroes, Pigeons and Jeffrey Jerusalem. The night kicks off with a kaleidoscopic animation by cartoon crazies, Hooliganship. Any way you slice it, this evening promises catharsis, innuendo...and a helluva dance party.
