For our triumphant return, we bring you Hour co-creator/headhunter, Willamette Week music correspondent and frontman of the internationally touring Doom-Metal act Witch Mountain, the great Nathan Carson; the unforgettable performance Fiction of fellow Cafe Lena veteran Jennifer Robin; a classically Portland poet with whom we are lucky to share a decade, one-woman show Amy Temple Harper; Bizarro/Noir God Garrett Cook, who will command a room like a Baptist preacher when he gets going, except lots more fun... and Oral Storyteller/Folklorist Ilana Hamilton, who memorizes classic stories and tells them dramatically on the fly. Ilana is an Hour favorite, and NOT TO BE MISSED. As well, I will be warming up the stage with a few poems some of you may remember, one of which I actually wrote. Bring your friends, tell everyone you can think of, and let's pack the house and KEEP LIVE SPOKEN WORD ALIVE IN PORTLAND. We're back. Alea Iacta Est.
