Event tonight!

Are you up to the challenge of creating something BRAND NEW? Art and music NEVER BEFORE SEEN? Not Enough Fest is happening again this September and we’re amped to get y’all involved! 

Not Enough Fest is a showcase of all the amazing energy we as queers can bring to creative projects. Since there are not enough of us in mainstream art and music scenes - let’s make our own! 

The goal of this event is to create space for queer people to express themselves and to create community by bringing together artists, musicians and film makers to offer up their magic in front of a supportive audience. 

We ask of you, old timers and pros alike:
● Create something BRAND NEW (to be showcased for the FIRST TIME at the festival)
● Collaborate (meet a new friend, take up that old offer from that acquaintance - all work must be by two or more people)
● Experiment (we want new forms of music/art/performance to arise)
● Create something that has a maximum length of 25 minutes

This NIGHT OF 1000 POSSIBILITIES will help you meet new folks, find collaborators/co-conspirators/rabble rousers/weirdos to make cool shit with you! We’ll have (unromantic!) speed dating to help get you past the awkward I-don’t-know-what-to-do blues! 

This event is being held at the Billy Web Elk’s Lodge in North Portland - the nation’s only black-owned Elk’s Lodge. Join us in supporting a cool POC-owned local business. Event is free, accessible and all ages - but food and alcohol with be for sale on site! (They also ask that people not wear HATS or BAGGY PANTS below yr butts to the space).

HEY GAYS! We haven’t posted in awhile, but we have been busy planning and scheming for this year’s queer magic! We’ve got some fun stuff coming up that we’ll be posting about soon so keep your banana’s peeled!

First though, we have to acknowledge that the best thing EVER happened. There was a Not Enough! festival in New Orleans! In case you don’t know, No More Fiction put it on  last friday April 26th. No More Fiction shows are a group of folks in New Orleans who strive to ”create woman-positive and queer-positive spaces in New Orleans for local DIY bands and for bands on tour.” which is amazing anyway and we were so stoked that they decided to do their own version of Not Enough! There were a bunch of new bands that formed and the photos looks awesome, you should be able to find them here. 

Another thing that happened was we had a Not Enough! “reunion” show at Red and Black! We had Thank You Holy Spirit, Cockeye, Fucking Lesbian Bitches and Voices all play. The show was incredibly well attended, and had the best “vibes” according to the word on the street. Speaking of Not Enough! bands, a whole lot of them are playing a cool event at Slabtown on Pride weekend with The Need! You can RSVP here.

And we were incredibly lucky to do some tabling at Seattle’s 'Mo-Wave festival recently! We got the chance to rub elbows with some queers in Seattle as well as talk about our project. Thanks so much to 'Mo-Wave for making such a rad party and to everyone we met while there!

Stay Tuned for more important messages!
