Love, Lies, and a Bit of Bleeding

Love, Lies, and a Bit of Bleeding

Back Fence PDX and the OK Chorale PDX Present Love, Lies, and a Bit of Bleeding, a Valentines Day singalong and storytelling event. Love, Lies and a Bit of Bleeding celebrates love in all its twisted, splendid glory. FEATURING performances from Stephanie Schneiderman, Maria Webster, Matt Sheehy, John Roderick, and Ben Landsverk and the What's Love Got To Do With It Allstars, and more!

The OK Chorale is a bar-sing style pop song drop-in bi-monthly event founded by musician Ben Landsverk and producer Kate Sokoloff (Live Wire!) Our motto: we're just ok. We teach a few songs including harmonies, backed up with a live band. Artists include the Fleet Foxes to Fleetwood Mac. Come once, come every time. No pressure, and the less singing experience, the better! We also host live Singalong events like our Jesus Christ Superstar Singalong (Mississippi Studios, March 13) and turn music festival crowds into a one night only band.

Back Fence PDX is a live PDX storytelling show. Our Back Fence PDX: MAINSTAGE show has been playing to packed good-looking audiences since 2008. In 2013 we also became an ongoing radio/podcast miniseries on OPB. Our stories are also podcast on Rooftop Media/Spotify/iTunes/Pandora and on In 2013 we also introduced our second live storytelling show, Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE, which we are proud to say caught on like wildfire.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....
