Pink Martini at the Crystal Ballroom

December 28

Come join Portland’s own “little orchestra” for their last show in PDX this year, and get a sneak peak at what to expect from their fourth album which is coming out next year. Pink Martini takes music from all over the globe and turns it into a sound that is all their own—something you can dream to and dance to. The Crystal Ballroom provides the perfect venue for the immense talent that comes with this 12-person band. Lead singer China Forbes will whisk you away on a one-night world tour with her velvety voice and one-of-a-kind style. If you have not seen Pink Martini yet, you are missing out on one of Portland’s great gems. Another local band, The Stolen Sweets, will open for Pink Martini at this all ages show. The doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $27.50 if you buy them in advance and $30 on the day of the show. (225-0047,

Pink Martini put on, in my opinion, one of their best shows last night at the Crystal Ballroom! With a mock New Year's Eve countdown (5-4-3-2-1-1...) and many inpromptu songs, jingles and jokes from pregnant China Forbes, it was a very FUN, interactive show.

A memorable night to say the least....
