Portland’s First Techno Contra Dance

To be held on January 16th, 2011 at Lenora’s Room (third floor of the Melody Ballroom) in Portland, Oregon. 7:00-10:00 PM.

The caller will be Wendy Graham, imported from exotic Colorado for your dancing pleasure, and veteran of Binary Blackout, Seattle’s most recent and wildly-successful techno contra.

Sponsored by PCDC.

Tickets will be sold at the door. Decorations to include black lights, disco balls, and other questionably-tasteful relics of the previous millennium.

Recommended attire is white crinoline, orange zebra stripes, reflective body paint, a veiled tiara stolen from the Prettiest Princess, and sturdy dance shoes.
