    Live Wire with Luke Burbank

    Date November 30, 2023 7:30pm Pricing $25 – $35

    Special Guests: Lindy West, Camille Dungy, and Margo Cilker

    Live Wire Radio is an independently produced radio show based in Portland, Oregon. Hosted by Luke Burbank and announced by Elena Passarello, the show artfully blends unpredictable conversation, live music, and original comedy featuring all kinds of cultural talent and creative minds, from emerging artists to established acts. Live Wire champions discovery by producing engaging, spirited, and genuine live and listening experiences for a local and national audience.


    Lindy West is a former contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and the author of “Shit, Actually: The The Definitive, 100% Objective Guide to Modern Cinema”, as well as the New York Times bestselling memoir “Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman” and the essay collection “The Witches Are Coming”. Her work has also appeared in This American Life, The Guardian, Cosmopolitan, GQ, Vulture, Jezebel, and others. She is the co-founder of the reproductive rights destigmatization campaign #ShoutYourAbortion. Her latest project, a one woman show titled Every Castle, Ranked, takes her audience on a hilarious, bittersweet, razzle-dazzle journey through her fears, aspirations, disappointments, the history of toilets, and what it means to be a star.


    Camille T. Dungy is the author of four collections of poetry and two collections of essays. Her most recent collection, “Soil: The Story of a Black Mother’s Garden,” recounts her seven-year odyssey to diversify her garden in the predominately white community of Fort Collins, Colorado. BOOKLIST calls it “a significant, beautiful, meditative, and wholly down-to-earth memoir.” She has been the finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, a Guggenheim Fellow, an NAACP Image Award nominee, and the winner of an American Book Award. Her poems have been published in Best American Poetry, The 100 Best African American Poems, the Pushcart Anthology, Best American Travel Writing, and over thirty other anthologies.


    Margo Cilker has spent the last seven years touring internationally as a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter. Her debut record, “Pohorylle”, was nominated for UK Americana Album of The Year alongside Brandi Carlile and Robert Plant which earned her a slew of festival performances and tours supporting American Aquarium, Hayes Carll, and Drive-By Truckers. Her sophomore album, “Valley of Heart’s Delight”, refers to a place she can’t return: California’s Santa Clara Valley, as it was known before the orchards were paved over and became more famous for Silicon than apricots. Margo is the fifth generation of Cilker’s born there, and in this 11-song collection, family and nature intertwine as guiding motifs, at once precious and endangered, beautiful and exhausting. Her music, which has been compared to that of Lucinda Williams, Townes Van Zandt, and Gillian Welch, deftly explores the complex, often-shifting terrain where love and loss meet.
