More Info

With remixes and edits of Fleetwood Mac, crafted for the dance floor.
Dress Code: Metallically Magnificent

We call on Ancient Queens and Kings to twirl in decadence.
A gilded dance floor where mortals shine like the stars for one night.
Is it real? Or is it shadow and illusion?
They say:
Pure gold does not fear the furnace.

Since 2012, we have been hosting our tunnel-visioned event and celebrating the extensive back catalogue of Fleetwood Mac. With a curated and created assortment of remixes and edits we’ve shared our passion with like-minded hedonists all over the world. We’ve twirled in the mud at Glastonbury and tipped our top hat to the dust at Burning Man.

Join us for Volume 27 of PechaKucha Night Portland on October 2nd, 2018 as we return to Holocene for a night of community building, creative presentations and joyous surprises.

Our unique blend of speakers will share what the phrase "Happy Place" means to them. From secret locations to favorite sights, odd collections and new-found passions; hear the true stories of what Portlander’s do to celebrate, escape, recharge and ponder. And to make it extra interesting, we have defined “Happy Place” a something that carries with it no monetary incentive or a future wish to make money. This is pure euphoria.

Hi, I’m Alec Benjamin. I’m from Phoenix. I live in L.A. I got into music. I play guitar. I play piano. I sing. I tell stories. I’m a narrator. I went to school. I got signed. I made an album. I got dropped. I played a f**k ton of shows. I toured with Jon Bellion, Matisyahu, and Hoodie Allen. I played parking lots and lines during Shawn Mendes and Troye Sivan concerts to get fans. I handed out a ton of business cards. My Staples bill was insane. I wrote a bunch of new songs. Now, I’m putting them out. The first one is called “Let Me Down Slowly.” That’s only Chapter 1. Sincerely, Alec Benjamin
