Arts in the May Issue
In the May issue of Portland Monthly, culturephiles will:
← Get the story behind this month's new stage adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin's gender-bending sci-fi classic The Left Hand of Darkness from Hand2Mouth Theatre and Portland Playhouse.
◊ Open up the Trophy Case filled with May's best locally-made stuff, from a Portland-centric art pop-up in New York to Black Prairie's Led Zeppelin cover.
◊ Listen in on an interview with food politics guru Michael Pollan as he discusses his new book, Cooked: a Natural History of Transformation.
◊ Read our review of Radiation City's new album Animals in the Median, packed with bossa nova whimsy and a dozen sophisticated pocket-orchestra pop songs.
◊ Get our picks for your calendar this month, from Mythbusters' Explosive Exhibition at OMSI to Wonder Northwest (think Comic-Con, but with “regular” people).
◊ Dive into Benjamin Percy's second novel Red Moon, a monster-packed allegory set in the Pacific Northwest.
