Humanity on Wheels 3
April 5, 2016 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Kick Ass Oregon History and TriMet Diaries are proud to announce our third installment of Portland Mass Transit Stories, which we are calling “Humanity on Wheels 3!” Previously labeled “TriMet’s Woodstock,” this live story telling event will take place on April 5th, 2016 at The Jack London Bar (529 SW 4th Ave – under The Rialto Poolroom). Doors are at 7:00pm, the show begins at 7:30pm. The event is FREE!
Selected story tellers will open the evening. Sarah Mirk, Dan Christensen, William Reagan, Robert Wagner, Dr. Jeff and Heather Goguen will all share stories of riding TriMet. Then, the master of ceremonies, KAOH’s Doug Kenck-Crispin will introduce an Open Mic section of the program, where audience members can share their own Portland Mass Transit stories!
For the audience’s enjoyment, we will also offer musical interludes provided by Dr. Something (who’s songs include “Beaverton TC” and “Shitsplosion at the Lloyd Center Macy’s”). AND we will enjoy viewing vintage TriMet training films and advertisements that we obtained from the agency’s archives!
We certainly hope you will join us for Humanity on Wheels 3! As always, the event is conveniently located in the center of the previously “Fareless Square.”
A big thank you to Sprocket Podcast, who will be recording and broadcasting the program and Heather Goguen for the graphic design! AND to Matthew Cowan at the Oregon Historical Society for assisting with the vintage film transfer.
