More on the Miranda July Thing

posted by on March 26 at 12:40 PM


Even though we just announced it and it’s still months away, emails have been pouring in about the Miranda July event The Stranger is putting on at Neumo’s on May 17.

The latest:


Thanks for the early scoop on Miranda July’s upcoming appearance. I called Neumos where the recording directed me to TicketsWest. I called them and they said Miranda July isn’t showing in their system.

Is there another way to get tix or barring that, do you know when they go on sale at TicketsWest? I’m a
big fan and really want to see her.


Ah, good question. The reason the Miranda July event isn’t showing in TicketsWest’s system is because there aren’t any tickets to the Miranda July event. Like all of The Stranger’s ooey gooey super chunky double stuff literary happenings—actually, like almost everything magical The Stranger does—it’s free.

Though if you’re “a big fan” you’d be smart to arrive early—like, already be waiting when doors open at 7 pm. At the Jonathan Safran Foer event at Chop Suey a couple years ago, we had to turn away more than a hundred people.

July will read from her first book of short stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, followed by a live interview. Who will the special guests be? The whole lineup isn’t set, but it will include Becky Stark from Lavender Diamond, “Awesome” (the official band of Stranger literary events), and possibly another music act. Plus, there will be dancing. It will be quite the party. Rent a costume or something.

Oh sweet! I was worried about not getting a ticket due to all of the other July fans out there.

Thanks for the scoop!

Man. What a Martian faced starlet.

@2: What is that supposed to mean? Miranda July is very aesthetically pleasing. And any lady who can think up "back and forth, forever" is worthy of worship.

We need to expedite the Mars exploration schedule post-haste.

y'know, i just went to a free screening of "The Rape of the Sabine Women" and bought a ticket online in advance. Cost me one dollar on the service charge, but much simplified my entry to the thing. (Which turned out to be worth less than I paid, but that's not my point.) There's something to be said for rewarding those willing and able to drop everything and do nothing for hours in order to guarantee entry, I suppose...

I think it's great that Amanda has done so well. She used to be my neighbor years ago at Granada Court in NE Portland, and she was always the really quiet, really nice, performance artist that we would glimpse every once in a while, and hear whispers about.

Go Amanda!!!
