Deliciously live at Din Din


Delectable and unpretentious Din Din is Portland's own French-leaning bistro & supper club, notable for its conscientiously sourced, ultra-tasty fare. We're tickled tricolore to be doing our First Thursday Spectacle series here.

The Late Now Bodhisattvas

And of course the amazing TLN bodhisattvas: Derek Ecklund (sound), Brian Jennings (lighting), Carla Grant (stage manager), Don Kern (Mr. Indispensable), and paparazzi Jim Clinefelter and Ryan Mooney.

Can't afford tickets? We're artists; we get it. Come anyway:

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

• LIVE DANGEROUSLY: Come pay what you can 10 minutes before showtime. To even the odds, like our Facebook page and check it to see if we've sold out. (We'll try to keep that status accurate, but we can't possibly guarantee it.)
