After a three and a half year hiatus, it’s back! Humanity on Wheels 3 – presented by Kick Ass Oregon History and TriMet Diaries – takes place Tuesday, 5 April 2016 at the Jack London Bar (529 SW 4th Ave – under The Rialto Poolroom).
Selected story tellers will open the evening. Sarah Mirk, Dan Christensen, William Reagan, Robert Wagner, Dr. Jeff and Heather Goguen will all share stories of riding TriMet. Then, the master of ceremonies, KAOH’s Doug Kenck-Crispin will introduce an Open Mic section of the program, where audience members can share their own Portland Mass Transit stories!
For the audience’s enjoyment, we will also offer musical interludes provided by Dr. Something (whose songs include “Beaverton TC” and “Shitsplosion at the Lloyd Center Macy’s“). AND we will enjoy viewing vintage TriMet training films and advertisements from the 70s and 80s that we obtained from the agency’s archives!
We certainly hope you will join us for Humanity on Wheels 3! As always, the event is conveniently located in the center of the previously “Fareless Square.”
[A big thank you to Sprocket Podcast, who will be recording and broadcasting the program and Heather Goguen for the graphic design! Christopher Conner at TriMet was quite helpful in assisting with obtaining the vintage films, AND a big thank you to Matthew Cowan at the Oregon Historical Society for engineering the film transfer.]
Doors open at 7:00 PM, the show starts at 7:30 PM, and the event is FREE!
