Not sure how we missed this one, but Vice's web TV show Soft Focus
will be filming here in PDX this Thursday (Dec. 4) at the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne).
The show will feature legendary Nation of Ulysses/the Make-up front-dood Ian Svenonius interviewing similarly legendary hometown heroes Fred and Toody Cole (Pierced Arrows/ex-Dead Moon) and Stephen Malkmus. That's a whole lotta rock celebrity packed into the Hawthorne St. brew-pub, and, straight after the 7-10pm taping, Mr. Svenonius himself will be spinning records ‘til late at the afterparty at nearby Aalto Lounge (3356 SE Belmont).
To attend the free taping, be sure to RSVP here.
And if you're curious what the show is all about, here's a clip of everyone's favorite sober sailor, Minor Threat/Fugazi/the Evens frontman, er, legend, Ian Mackaye struggling to break through Svenonius' overwhelming self-satisfaction in a previous episode of Soft Focus
And here's a whole bunch of other videos
in the series to check out.
