Portland's Julie Sabatier, in addition to producing Bitch Media's issue podcasts, has been producing her own stellar podcast, Destination DIY, for three years now, covering everything from self-publishing to DIY funerals to gender identity. Now syndicated on channels across the country, Julie is hosting an event to raise funds for the upcoming episodes.
This Friday in Portland, Julie is hosting a night of communal DIY at the Woods, with live demonstrations of making your own terrariams, bacon, and, of course, your own radio show. Live music will be provided by Leviethan and billygoat, who make incredible stop-motion animation, and guests are invited to bid in a silent auction and hit up the recording room to share their own DIY projects and a chance to hear themselves on the next episode! Portlanders should definitely come out and support independent radio and the DIY legacy in the digital age. (And yes, there will be snacks!)
PDX Salon and Destination DIY present: An Evening of DIY
November 6th, 8-11pm at The Woods
Tickets are $10-20 (sliding scale) and are available in advance.
Bitch is lucky enough to get special things in the mail from readers, makers
and doers from time-to-time. Recently, one of these packages arrived
for me from Kelly Abeln, Editor and Art Director of the publication, 'Cult of Flowers'.
