If you thought bumbling around the east end of Southeast Hawthorne used to be funny, well ... it was. But prepare for a whole new level of everyone trying to be a comedian this weekend as the first ever Bridgetown Comedy Festival rolls through.

Starting Thursday night, the up and coming gut busters will be cutting up stages at Mt. Tabor, Bar of the Gods, Eagles Lodge and the Hawthorne Theater.

Get a wristband.

More to come

On Friday there's a new-er club I've wanted to check out in Old Town - it's called the Crown Room on 205 SW 4th and they're now having live bands. During the week they do the swanky cocktail lounge thing and on Wednesdays there's an Elvis Act.
Anyhoo, the Hit-and-Run will be playing Friday night, so cocktail lounge turned punk club. You know, for us old people.

All weekend long will be the Portland Lindy exchange swing fest. I don't know how to East Coast, but many girls tell me I should.
