Red and Black Cafe 9th Birthday Bash!

The Red and Black is turning nine years old!
Come party down with the Red and Black Cafe as we celebrate our ninth year as a radical / community space. There will be live music by:

Tansy & Tarweed (jazz / punk inspired anarcho-folk)
Slow Teeth (raucous vaudevillian folk)
Disemballerina (cello, guitar and viola doom, epic and beautiful)
The Dapper Cadavers (PDX favorite, punk-tinged old time)

In addition we will have TWO TYPES of kombucha on tap for sale, courtesy of local business Herbucha, as well as beer on tap. There will also be rad t-shirts, buttons and posters for sale, and literature / info tables by some local activist groups.

For all this? A mere $5 suggested donation at the door, or more if you're feeling generous. We are trying to raise funds for a new projector as well as other possible equipment purchases. Of course, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Please support the Red and Black! We are Portland's oldest worker-owned cafe and at a time where many radical spaces are threatened by the diving economy and state repression, we want to remain a pillar in our community, as well as be a hub for local social justice movements to connect with each other. So come show some solidarity and have some fun while you're at it! Oh yeah, did we mention there's going to be CAKE? Oh snap.

The event will be held at LIBERTY HALL on October 15th. It will all start around 7pm. Liberty Hall's address is: 311 N. Ivy Street.

Love and revolution,
Red and Black Cafe
