Music, conversation and celebration: 10/4 Hood River

Live Performance: “It’s like Hamilton about oil trains
Followed by a Coal Victory Party 10/4 Hood River

Come for the oil train show and stay for the celebration

  • What: Join us a for an evening of music, conversation and celebration. First, Portland musician Holcombe Waller will perform “Notes from the Riverkeepers,” a concert exploring the environmental threats from crude-oil-by-rail transport. Followed by a post-performance conversation with Host/Producer Sarah Fox of Hear in the Gorge podcast; featuring Laurent Picard, 21 year veteran firefighter, emergency manager, 10 year Hood River former city council member; Miles Johnson of Columbia Riverkeeper, and Patrick Mulvihill of Hood River News.
    Second, join a celebration party immediately after the show at 8:30 pm (cash bar). Raise a toast to the downfall of coal export! On Tuesday, Sept. 26 the State of Washington rejected the Millennium coal export terminal, which would have sent eight full coal trains through the Gorge every day. Many local voices, including the Columbia Gorge Climate Action Network, played a key role in stopping coal trains. Come celebrate with friends.
  • When: Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017. Doors at 6:30pm, show at 7:00 pm; audience Q&A 8:00 pm; coal victory party 8:30 pm.
  • Where: Columbia Center For The Arts (215 Cascade Street, Hood River, OR)
