    From Maxville to Vanport

    Alberta Rose Theatre

    A live performance of the Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble’s “From Maxville to Vanport” featuring poetry by Renee Mitchell, music by Ezra Weiss, and video by Kalimah Abioto.

    This piece of community-guided music incorporates the stories of two unique towns in Oregon’s history, Maxville and Vanport, in songs for Marilyn Keller with our 12-member jazz ensemble. Maxville and Vanport both had significant multicultural populations at a time when Oregon was particularly unfriendly to non-white residents, and their histories deserve to be heard and better understood by all Oregonians.

    The Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble is a 12-piece jazz chamber orchestra which commissions and performs original works by its members and by other jazz composers in the Portland music community. The PJCE has received support from the OCF’s 2015 Creative Heights and Small Arts programs, the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and the Oregon Arts Commission. Now in its tenth year, the PJCE has commissioned more than 50 composers and produced more than 30 concerts of original works.

    Anti Police Brutality Solidarity Rally

    Chapman Square

    On Sunday June 4th, 2017, just a few days after one of Joey Gibson’s fan boys murdered 2 people of the max train, Gibson and his goons invaded our city. He invited violent alt-right out of town agitators, Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman and “Baked Alaska”, as guests of honor. Our local officials, including Mayor Ted Wheeler and then chief of police Mike Marshman, invited Joey to speak with them in a private meeting before the event, accomplishing nothing but stoking the fire of anger in our community.

    Portland showed up in force to counter Gibson’s hateful rhetoric, outnumbering their attendance by at least 1000 people. After hours of peaceful protest, PPB attacked the counter protesters to create cover for Gibson’s rally to leave the park. The police created a war zone in downtown Portland that day, shooting protesters with pepper spray bullets and throwing flash bang grenades into crowded areas, forcing the crowd to leave the area, kettling and detaining over 300 people in a mass illegal roundup.

    PPB has a well detailed, sordid history of overuse of force. They continually murder, terrorize, and abuse; people of color, children, people in mental health crisis, and the houseless in Portland, all of our most marginalized neighbors. They attack peaceful protesters and protect the violent fascists at every turn. It’s time we take our town back, and stand up to the Portland police and tell them we will no longer allow them to bully, abuse, and murder us with impunity. Join us for a solidarity rally on Sunday June 3rd, 2:00pm, at Chapman Park.

    Hope to see you then!
