none other than Brent Spiner at the Roseland, 8 NW 6th Ave, January 11th, 7pm. Yes, Star Trek's Commander Data is front and center in his own traveling jazz showcase; and we've got an all-star band of locals to accompany him: Gavin Bondy (Pink Martini), Skip Von Kuske (Portland Cello Project), Paul Evans (Vagabond Opera), Joe Hagele (Shanghai Woolies), Sean Hayden Hudson (Orchestre L'Pow), and Joey Appel (Anna Paul and the Bearded Lady). Can you believe it? We've already sold some hundreds of tickets, so don't hesitate. Run down to www.roselandpdx.com and grab a couple now! 21+ only, I'm afraid. Or if Stark Trek and Jazz isn't your cup of tea, head Southwest to The Old Church at 1422 SW 11th for a celebration of the Berber New Year with the incomparable Moh Alileche, Hurqalya, and Danielle Elizabeth.
