More Info

Celebrate New Year's Eve with a fantastic evening in a spectacularly uncommon way. This backroom disco is curated by some of Portland's most exciting artists and nightlife personalities. Toast at midnight. Dancing beyond...

We've all heard the saying "All that glitters isn't gold".
But, what happens when you aren't looking for gold at all?
You're left with that sparkling refractory element which outwardly broadcasts the leftovers of light breaking the dark.

Function is a party for what lies just beneath the surface. It's a scenario celebrating the spectacle of the nightlife. It's a convergence of contrasting energies that celebrates the light within the dark. We celebrate the old and the new. We magnify the unexpected, and welcome your curiosity as we bring the underground above ground... just for a night.

More Info

With his 'This Never Happened' concept becoming one of dance music's word-of-mouth success stories, Lane 8 aka Daniel Goldstein proudly announces his second artist album, ‘Little By Little’, on his own This Never Happened label.

Due for release in January 2018, 'Little By Little’ distills Lane 8's unique flair for melodic, heart-warming electronics, traversing reflective electronica, instrumental club epics and left-field pop moments alike. 

The album tour will see Lane 8 DJ tracks from across the album and his rich discography - including new edits, club mixes and remixes. 

As This Never Happened shows, Lane 8 will again ask all in attendance to connect with each other and the music in the purest possible way. As such, no phone cameras or filming will be allowed on the dancefloor. 

Leave your phone. Experience the moment. This Never Happened.
