PICA Turns 17 August 2nd
With A Late Night Dance Party
Celebrate seventeen years of PICA with late-night bass beats and a two-floor birthday dance party at our downtown HQ. Swing by the space after the First Thursday galleries for DJs, drinks, live music, and an immersive video and light experience. Stacks of TBA guidebooks, fresh mixes, and all of your PICA friends will fill the space until early in the morning.
Ω MAXXIMUM VOLUME Ω
Artists D 18a7 ane Overton and Alex Mackin Dolan are Ω MAXXIMUM VOLUME Ω, a DJ and visuals collective from Portland, Oregon. They’ve thrown parties at spaces across the city, blending sounds of house, industrial, trance, jungle, and ghettotech with light and video installations. They’ll create an energy gradient on the second floor of PICA, transitioning partygoers from a zen bar zone through to an industrial techno dance floor.
Musician and producer Massacooramaan (aka Dave Quam) recently moved from to Portland from Chicago, where he was active DJing in and documenting the local Juke, Footwork, and Dancehall scenes. His sets cross the extreme poles of global styles, from Thailand to the Dutch Caribbean to Egypt to India, from bubbling to reggae.
