In Other Words Books
14 NE Killingsworth St
Portland, OR 97217

Right now we have dozens of packages of books wrapped and addressed, but no money for postage :(

So come on down and get wild and silly in a warm setting that ain't heternormative. Everyone invited - queers, non-queers and the like.

Montanna Jane calling out the moves to keep dancers on que.

Musicians from local stringband RabbitFoot and other great musicians will be providing the music.

No experience necessary. All dances and moves are taught gradually through the night. It is a good idea for your first dance or two come within the first hour, as the night progresses the review of previously taught moves becomes brief.

No need to get dressed up...but please feel free to get gussied up in your favorite western wear, vintage items, boots or dancing shoes.
