DADA Dinnr Theatr

Live at Andina Restaurant

Andina Restaurant

Celebrate One Year (almost) of The Late Now

with Fine Peruvian Cuisine

in Portland's Pearl District

Delicious + Delirious

Forget dinner-and-a-movie. This is dinner theater as never seen before, during or since. The Late Now brings a high-spirited, Dada-inflected evening of music, performance & interviews with the signature TLN late night avant-variety-talk-show vibe — on (almost) the one-year anniversary of our début show.

And the delirium will be notably delicious with Andina's renowned Novo-Peruvian cuisine: tapas, wines, and cocktails in high style in the Pearl District.

The Lineup ►


★ Doug Shafer has lined up a supergroup of talented musicians from Portland bands Hurqalya and Smut City Jellyroll Society: ★ Andrew Alikhanov, clarinet ★ Dave Hill, accordion & keyboard ★ Charles Pike, drums & percussion, and Shafer himself on various strings & percussion. It will be a richly eclectic sonic evening of pan-mediterranean world-beatnik tunes, prohibition-era jazz and, naturalmente, Peruvian psychedelia.

★ Craig Florence — One year (almost) after the man behind Mother Foucault's Bookshop guest-starred on our début episode, Craig returns to TLN to dog-ear your dust jacket with an ISBN-ful of literary anarchy. ¡Whatever that means!


★ Don Kern is Kernak the Commendable ★ Longtime coproducer/cohost of Portland's long-running variety show ScratchPDX Don Kern makes a special appearance on TLN. Fully turbanized, The Great Kernak will blow your mind — by reading it. Ooh. Live in prime time, baby.

★ Dann Green and ★ Ben Purdy — Artist-engineers Dann Green (making his third appearance on TLN) and Ben Purdy combine forces, uniting the former's custom-built video synthesizer with latter's mad video mapping technology to generate site-specific projective goodness. Check out Dann's work on 4ms Projects.

The Game Show ►

Dadwood Squares

★ The Dadawood Squares — It's The Late Now's very own game show! Do stuff! Say things! Win cash and prizes! Except not the cash part!

Can't afford tickets? We get it. (Hey, we're artists.) Here are 3 ways to get in on the cheap:

1. Volunteer: We always need more hands (and brains). To repeat, we would love your help. Just get in touch.

2. Request a discount code. Starving Artist rate too steep? We have some $5 Pale Poet tickets. Contact us and ask for a code to use on Brown Paper Tickets.

3. Take your chances at the door. Come pay what you can 15 minutes before curtain. To even the odds, like our Facebook page and check it to see if we've sold out. (We'll strive to keep that status accurate, but we can't possibly guarantee it.)
