Hello friends of the Dooryard!
First: sorry to have been neglecting our blog!
We've been a state of change: old members have left, new have joined us. In the last few months we've said good bye to Josh Clukey and Meghan McDonough, both founding members of the Dooryard. We're happy to welcome Jess Lauren Lipton as a new addition to our upstairs art room.
We've been making a serious effort to clean out the cobwebs and re-envision the Dooryard as a place to hold a more professional and clean looking gallery space. We really look forward to showing off to y'all as soon as we can!
We are aiming for March or April to be open once again for First Friday Art Walk. We'll be sure to keep you posted.
And, if you're interested in seeing our smiling faces, check back for information regarding our continuing first Friday after parties at Slainte! Come dance and support us!
The Dooryard is happy to announce that two of our in-house bands, Marie Stella and Dead Man's Clothes, will be playing this year's CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday, October 23rd. The good folks at HillyTown.com (which really just means Bryan, guitarist in Marie Stella) have put together a night of Portland bands to blow the tights pants off New York!
Also find the same Dooryard bands on Treble Treble 2, the latest compilation of Portland music. Listen for free on HillyTown.
