Siren Nation 2008 Festival on Nov 3rd – 9th

Here’s something that seems interesting going on in November at various places around town: Siren Nation -:- 2008 Festival.

The 2008 Siren Nation Festival is scheduled to take place November 3-9 in Portland, Oregon and will feature 3 nights of women directed films, 3 nights of music and performance art and 5 gallery art shows of original art by women.

Among other things, Laura Gibson will be playing at Wonder Ballroom on Saturday and Lisa Papineau is playing on Friday. Playing with Lisa Papineau is a band I’ve only just found out about tonight called Strangers Die Every Day.

I ran into the Siren Nation site via Strangers Die Every Day, which appears to be the only local venue they’re playing any time soon.
